‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.

Psalms 27:14

We’ve heard it said, that we live in a microwave generation and as such we want everything given to us in a few minutes. That is not just true about food, news, and customer service; it is also, sadly true when it comes to the understanding of many with respect to God and the timing of His answers to prayer.

We want our prayers answered and we want them answered in the immediacy of our dictates. And when God doesn’t respond as we have decided He must, we often will take things into our own hands. And it goes without saying that is a formula for disaster.

We see that when Sarah tired of waiting for God and decided to take the matter of having a child into her own hands. The world is troubled today by the consequences of her impatience and the decision to take things into her own hands. The world today is troubled by the progeny of Ishmael.

Joseph waited 13 years, Abraham waited 25 years, and Moses waited 40 years before seeing the specific promises God made to them fulfilled. But they never ceased to believe God would keep His promise.
We must always remember that while we are waiting for God to answer our prayers, many times he is preparing us to receive the blessing of His answer to our prayers. It is important to also keep in mind that there are times that God’s answer to our prayers, is not answering them as we want and/or believe they should be answered.

Faith is not just believing God will answer our prayers the way we want them answered, but “faith” is also believing God knows what is best for us even when our prayers are not answered as we wanted.

Psalms 27:14
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.
Psalms 62:5
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.
