Living Water Read: Psalm 55:16-18
As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
MEMORISE: Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us (Psalm 62:8).
As advancement and globalization expand, the world keeps achieving the global village status. In contrast however, the communal living among men, especially a pillar and heritage of the African people keeps evaporating. Indeed, we live in a world where everyone keeps absolutely to themselves, minding their businesses and so caring less about the golden rule of being their brother’s keeper.
No wonder the rate of depression, insanity and suicide which are the extremes of keeping to oneself, keeps rising yearly. People smile gleefully and also put up a bold front as if to say all is well, but they are just walking corpses, waiting for opportunities to kick the bucket.
In the midst of this, it is a blessing for you as a child of God to have infinite God, as your Father and best Friend, Jesus Christ, the Saviour, who cares about you and to whom you can freely pour your heart. You are to be exempted from these social ills as you maximize both personal and fellowship opportunities to meet with the Lord, pouring out your heart to Him.
For “what a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grieve to share, what s privilege to carry everything to God in prayer”! A problem shared with a counsellor, consultant or fellow human, is half-solved but with the Lord, you get instant and full solutions. Let us therefore rise and begin to pour our hearts unto Him, casting all our cares upon Him, for He cares for us. SHALOM!
1. Daddy, I thank You for being there for me, as I pour my heart to You, Father let Your peace ease my pains.
2. Lord Jesus, I cast all my cares on You, let Your mighty power come to my aid.
3. Every demon of depression and worry, I rebuke you. Angels of God surround my household in Jesus’ name.
