  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 13
    David thanked God for delivering him from death, and keeping him from falling. God will allow him to serve and glorify Jesus, the Light, in the land of the living. What time I am afraid, Lord I will trust in thee, and I shall not fear what man can do unto me. As Jesus prepared the Passover, He told His disciples I have greatly desired to eat this Passover with you, for I will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered. Peter said though all men forsake you I will not, and Jesus told him before the cock crows twice, you will deny me thrice. After it happened just like Jesus said, Peter wept. God did not spare His Son, but delivered Him up to us all, that He could give us all things through Him. The last enemy Jesus destroyed on that Cross, was death. We can now walk in the land of the living because we have passed from death unto life in Christ.
