Wesley's Notes for Psalms 102:9


102:9 Bread - The sense is, dust and ashes are as familiar to me as the eating of my bread; I cover my head with them; I sit, yea, lie down in them, as mourners often did.

    we are all afflicted one way or the other, only God knows. I recently lost my dad and family drama is so terrible. I pray that God will favour my mum and siblings, even though we lost a father. God Almighty will favour us so much than we can comprehend. Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour us is now. Amen.

  • Godwin Simeon Umoh for verse 13
    PSALM 102:13. I give glory to the uncreated Creator in whose palm is ocean of wisdom source giver of wisdom , in His whispering cometh understanding His word or the entrance of His word gives us an aspiration into a high level of spiritual knowledge . It is indisputable fact that GOD walks with time that HE also operates in season. But the rhema in this particular verse 13 of psalm 102 is that GOD do step out of time season in most cases or situations. In this context,i have been inspired by the holy spirit to understand the fact that a set time may or does not necesssrily mean a specific time programmed or a particular season appointed,but it also mean when the situation is beyound human control or capacity this can as well be considered as a set time for GOD 'S intervention.A set time can also be liken to a storming time or period where u find yourself in an indefinite situation such as spiritual,physical,medical,financial, and even academical quagmire that defiles human or professionals ability.
