‘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.

Rays of Sunshine Breaking Through Dark Clouds – Sunday Thought For The Day

As Christians we like to think that we give thanks to the Lord for His blessings.  To the extent that is true, let’s take a look at a situation I experienced recently.

I’ve been dealing with a health situation for the past few years that at times causes me inconvenience and even nausea, because of the medication I take for it.

Sunday past, I was annoyed and concerned that the referenced inconvenience and/or nausea could very easily occur in route to church.  The last thing I wanted to deal with before church was the annoying effects of the medication I take.  I prayed before we left for church, asking the Lord that I not experience any of the effects of the medication while we were driving  to church.

Some time after we had arrived at church, I realized that I hadn’t experienced the effects of the medication I had prayed not to experience.  I thanked the Lord for answering my prayer and reflected upon how I had handled things.

The point I want to make is the following: How often do we ignore the little blessings of the Lord.  The little blessings are those I refer to as: rays of sunshine that break through the dark clouds of trying times and moments?  As believers, we can miss these beautiful rays of sunshine that break through the dark clouds, because we’re focused on the dark clouds.  Our Father in Heaven wants us to give thanks for the dark clouds through which the brilliant rays of sunshine break though.

The Apostle Paul tells us to rejoice in the Lord always.  Paul tells us to let our moderation, i.e., gentleness and forbearance be known unto all men.  Paul tells us: Be careful, i.e., careful for nothing.

We must mature as Christians to the point that we cease to be consumed by the dark clouds, but rather we’re singularly focused upon our God, who is the Creator of all things seen and unseen.

If we commit to being singularly focused upon God we will be able to sing in the darkness of night and blackest of clouds.  The Apostle Paul wasn’t the exception to the above; he is an example of normative for God’s children; just as are the rest of God’s children written about in the scriptures and observed on earth.  It is a truism: secure are the children of God who trust in Him and who are focused upon Him.


Isaiah 26:3-4 (KJV)

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:
