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.

    To Jojo I understand how you feel i had a lot of things hapen to me and Lord knows I rebelled and done a lot of things Im not proud of. But all glory and praises belongs to GOD for saving a sinner like myself. I am very very thankful and greatful for GOD'S unconditional love He has shown me and I know HIS mercies are new for me everyday also His grace. I get weak at times but GOD IS GOOD!

    To ware Daniel God loves you , You humbled yourself before Him, He will answer, Your humble cry made me ashamed of myself for not remembering to be humble before the Lord , sometimes I get a little self righteous and a know it all attitude. Have you read this Luke 18:10 -14
