Wesley's Notes for Psalms 55:22


55:22 Burden - All thy crosses, and cares, and fears, lay them upon the Almighty, by faith and prayer. He directs this speech to his own soul, and to all good men in like circumstances. Suffer - As he doth wicked men. Tho' he may for a season suffer them to be shaken, yet not to be overwhelmed.

    Since we are living in Satan's system ( 1 john 5:19) we HAVE TO rely on Jehovah. We will have burdens in this life, and if we don't share that burden with God, we will be crushed by them. Growing a relationship with God is not an option. We have to do so to truly enjoy life.
