Wesley's Notes for Psalms 36:9


36:9 Life - It is in God as in a fountain, and from him is derived to us. But - Of that glorious and blessed, and endless life, which alone is worthy of the name. Light - In the light of thy glorious presence, which shall be fully manifested, when we see thee face to face. Light - Joy and comfort, and happiness: the word light is elegantly repeated in another signification; in the former clause it is light discovering, in this light, discovered or enjoyed.

    We must trust in the Lord God each and every day. We are living in a world where so much evil is all around us. But we must be still and and know that He is God. It is written greater is he that is in us then he in the world. It is written we are more than conquerors. It is written he was come that we may have life more abundantly. We have power with the word of God.
