His Indwelling Presence

To appreciate art, one must either be born with an artistic sense or develop it by training. Only a relatively few people have an innate sense of color, form, and harmony. To such, a love for art comes naturally. Without an artistic appreciation in one’s soul, visiting an art gallery can be a boring affair. Likewise, to appreciate good music one must have music “in him” or develop it. Without a sense of music appreciation, it is possible to sleep through a symphony concert or a performance of the Metropolitan Opera. So it is with the things of God.

Talk about God can become dreary and lackluster if God isn’t in you. Church can become a drab thing and the Bible an irksome Book if the Holy Spirit does not illuminate your soul with His indwelling presence. The wonderful thing about it all is that God has planned life so that if our hearts are dead to spiritual things, something can be done about it.

Prayer for the day

Lord God Almighty, may I daily reach out to You and be filled with the love of Christ.

    Joyce Paul, I am praying for your heart & breathing problems. Your comments are an inspiration to me, and, I am sure, to many others who read these devotions. Praying for your healing. May God touch you with His healing powers this very day.

    Father God. I praise your Holy name for your son Jesus and the Holy spirit that lives in me. I can mentally and physically feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in me…However, Sadly I am a person that loses focus sometimes, get sidetracked and am led astray by the world and unnecessary things that I just “want”, Help me Jesus to keep my eye on the prize and be more caring of my fellow man. This I pray in the name of Jesus Christ.

    The greatest decision a person can make in life is to choose Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit will then indwell you and transform your soul. Life as you know it will change incredibly for the best . Your only regret will be that you did not do it sooner.
