Will a Christian Always Experience the Presence of God?

Episode 626 Show Notes 

From the Show

The guy who wrote Psalm 88, the psalm that begins and ends in lament, was a worship leader himself. 1st Chronicles 25 describes him as one of the chief singers. He was supposed to be a spiritual giant, we might say, and even he experienced spiritual drought. It doesn’t matter who you are or how long you have been walking with the Lord, there will be times in your life where you feel distant from the him.

––Adriel Sanchez
