    He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge, His truth shall be your shield and buckler (Psalm 91:4).

Isaiah 49:13-26

[13]. Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, And will have mercy on His afflicted.

[14]. But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.”

[15]. “Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.

[16]. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.

[17]. Your sons shall make haste; Your destroyers and those who laid you waste Shall go away from you.

[18]. Lift up your eyes, look around and see;
All these gather together and come to you. As I live,” says the Lord, “You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all as an ornament, And bind them on you as a bride does.

[19]. “For your waste and desolate places,
And the land of your destruction, Will even now be too small for the inhabitants; And those who swallowed you up will be far away.

[20]. The children you will have, After you have lost the others, Will say again in your ears,
‘The place is too small for me; Give me a place where I may dwell.’

[21]. Then you will say in your heart, ‘Who has begotten these for me, Since I have lost my children and am desolate, A captive, and wandering to and fro? And who has brought these up? There I was, left alone; But these, where were they?’”

[22]. Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations, And set up My standard for the peoples; They shall bring your sons in their arms, And your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders;

[23]. Kings shall be your foster fathers, And their queens your nursing mothers; They shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth, And lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the Lord, For they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.”

[24]. Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?

[25]. But thus says the Lord: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.

[26]. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, And they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine. All flesh shall know That I, the Lord, am your Savior, And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”


         Depression is one of the commonest diseases today that is claiming many lives. It has led to many suicide cases. So many people have given up the hope of better life because of the situation they are in. However, contrary to their submission, there has never been a problem or situation that has no already made solution. That is why it is expedient to realise through today's dose of the Living Water that God is in charge of that situation that has deflated your hope. He is the God of possibility. The earlier you know this, and key into it, the better

       You will be glad to hear that God, the Creator of heavens and earth, the Almighty, bears you in mind. What does it mean to bear someone in mind? Such person is important and must be always remembered either for a favour, deliverance or any act of goodness. The person you bear in mind occupies an important place in your life and he means so much to you. You meant so much to God, and He can never forget you because you are important in His agenda. You are like an apple of His eyes. It is never God's will for you to be rejected, dejected and depressed. Are you not glad to know that you are in the hollow of God's hand (v.16)? There is nothing evil can do to you. Since it is not possible for the maker of a thing to look away from his handiwork, God cannot look away from you, because you are His child, His holy, peculiar people (1 Pet 2:9). God is happy about you and wants you to fulfil His agenda here on earth, before returning back to Him. Just as God declares to Zion in today's devotion to rejoice because He has comforted her. He is telling you to be glad and forget about your terrible past. God promises to have mercy on you. He is not like any mother who can forget her suckling child(ren). Rest assured that God bears you in His mind. Just hold on to Him continually.


1. Come, soul and find thy rest,
    No longer be distress'd,
    Come to thy Saviour's breast,
    O don't stay away.

    Pray'rs are ascending now
    Angels are bending low,
    Both words are blending now,
    O don't stay away.

2. Dark is the world and cold,
    Her cares cannot be told,
    Come to Thy Saviour's fold,
    O don't stay away.

3. Come with Thy load of sin,
    Christ died Thy soul to win;
    Now He will take Thee in
    O don't stay away.

4. Time here will soon be past,
    Moments are flying fast
    Judgment will come at last,
    O don't stay away.

5. Come, O we pray thee, come,
    Come, and no longer roam;
    Come now and start for Home,
    O don't stay away.



1. O Lord, deliver me from whatever spiritual ailments that makes me feel You are not hearing or fighting for me. 

2. Lord, do not abandon me at any point in my life, continue to be my God.

3. Be the succour for all Your children that are facing one distress, depression or disappointment, O Lord. 

Isaiah 1:10-5:17
