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.

    Crystal be encouraged! We all go through trials and hardships but Jesus is the keeper of our souls! Hold fast to your confession of faith without wavering because He is faithful that promised. Heb. 10:23 We will make it through Jesus! He word is life to the believer!

    I'm just coming into reading the Bible. But I must admit I feel lost, even though I do believe in our saviour Jesus Christ. My faith has always been in him but my life is like a muddy picture where I'm trying to see my life purpose and I am lost. I felt compelled to write this as tears fall from my eyes.
