‘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.

Keeping Our Minds and Hearts Detoxed – Sunday Thought For The Day

The liver is the filter of our physical body.  The mind is the filter of our heart, i.e., our spiritual body.  Health conscious people take supplements to flush and detox the pollutants that collect in our liver.  It is imperative to our good physical health to pay attention to what contaminates our liver.

Christians must pay attention to what pollutants are collecting and contaminating our mind and heart.  Impure thoughts, lust and entertaining vengeful/spiteful thoughts, etc. are pollutants.  The more we allow these and other untoward thoughts to thrive in our minds, the more contaminated our hearts become.  If we do not constantly pay attention to what we are thinking and mentally and emotionally allowing to consume our thoughts, the more our hearts become alienated from God and the leading of the Holy Spirit in us.

We can bury ourselves in sin just by our thought life while our heart deceives us into believing we are right with God.  We must be ever aware of what we are spending our time thinking about.  Our thought life can and will consume us for good or sin.

We must train ourselves by the power of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit in us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

There will be times when toxic sinful thoughts slip into our minds.  We must train ourselves to immediately take these thoughts to the Lord and ask Him to forgive us and the Holy Spirit to remove such thoughts – for truly, He that is in us, is greater than He that is in the world.

Victory doesn’t come without effort.  We must decide how close we want to walk with the Lord and commit ourselves to not allowing our flesh to have unchallenged victory over us.


2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (KJV)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
