Wesley's Notes for Psalms 36:6

Discussion for Psalms 36

    The most natural place for a little chicken, when it feels scared is under the safety of its mother's wing. We know that some animals are absolutely ferocious and terrible defenders and protectors, if there's even a hint of a possibility of threat to their little ones. In that regard, there is not much difference between a chicken and a bear. The Lord put that in them! He that is the Author of life, and the creator of the spirits of all living, must certainly have those qualities in Himself, in their divine perfection and especially for us, whom He so loves!

    I think Psalms 36:7, is saying at all times if you just trust in the Lord you be okay in this world. As long as you keep the faith, the Lord will protect you.

    Surely the Lovingkindness of our Lord is truly magnificient !! That is saying lightly : for His lovingkindness cannot be rightly spoken of in His True nature : Because of that , we , the children of men put our Trust under the shadow of His wing: OH !!! How Great is our God !!!

    Vs. 6 - God's judgment for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior is a decree of guiltless. We are declared free from all the penalty of sin and death because we have accepted the One who has set us FREE and free indeed.
