What you feel inside isn't God; it's your brain's emotions. I've heard people saying that the feeling of goodness when you've done something selfless is heaven applauding you. This is absolute nonsense; it's your mature brain telling you that what you've done (or something like that) was a moral act. It has nothing to do with God. Also, the Bible contradicts itself and has hurtful and clearly untrue coments in it (there are bits of it which insult athiesm, cohabitation, homosexuality, etcetera) a lot so I wouldn't trust it.
