DCLM Daily Manna 28 May 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Not A Forgetful Father

TOPIC: Not A Forgetful Father (DCLM Daily Manna 28 May 2022)

TEXT: Psalm 115:11-18 (KJV)

11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.

KEY VERSE: “The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.” – (Psalm115:12)


When man is at a crossroads, he is so deep in thought about whether he would survive or not, that he easily slips into fear of death. It happens to both believers and the heathen. The great Prophet Elijah fled for his life following Jezebel’s death threat. In that state of dilemma, he even asked God to take his life. Apostle Paul also spoke of “the sentence of death” in Asia.

The psalmist gives wise counsel for believers who find themselves in a dilemma. He admonishes them: “Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.” His plea is not to the sinful who rejects God’s word but to those who are in a relationship with Him. He says, “The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us…He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.”

This wisdom is lost on the majority of the people who seek material blessings outside God. They invest immense capital in the businesses of the ephemeral world without a corresponding attention to the things of lasting essence. But, like the psalmist said, God will reward and preserve those who fear Him.

As we fear the Lord and invest our resources to honour Him, He will be “mindful of us”. He will remember us in “our low estate” (Psalm 136:23). Instead of pondering over our situation, we should resolve to praise God like the psalmist. “The dead praise not the LORD… But we will bless the LORD …for evermore. Praise the Lord”.

The Lord is always mindful of His children.
