Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:12


51:12 The joy - The comfortable sense of thy saving grace, promised and vouchsafed to me, both for my present and everlasting salvation. Free - Or, ingenuous, or liberal, or princely. Which he seems to oppose to his own base and illiberal and disingenuous and servile spirit, which he had discovered in his wicked practices: a spirit, which may free me from the bondage of sin, and enable me chearfully to run the way of God's precepts.

    I have been born again for a while it happened when I was praying in my bedroom, sometimes the enemy pulls me back in but I keep praying as Jesus said giving thanks always, and forgiving my enemies, was so numb before had such a void and that's why I know it's real. I prey for everybody who is questioning wether it's real and I ask that your eyes be opened spiritually in Jesus name Amen.
