Wesley's Notes for Psalms 27:13


27:13 The living - David was thus earnestly desirous of this mercy in this life, not because he placed his portion in these things; but because the truth and glory of God, were highly concerned in making good the promise of the kingdom to him.

    My favourite is this Psalms Chap. 27 verse 1 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" that is so very True if you PRAY and READ your Bible each and everyday and you have that Divine Faith and Assurance than no one and nothing can stop or hinder GOD'S Divine Pathway for each and every Creature in the UNIVERSE. Amen.
