Wesley's Notes for Psalms 6:8


6:8 Hath heard - By the workings of God's grace upon his heart, he knew his prayer was accepted. His tears had a voice, in the ears of the God of mercy. Silent tears are no speechless ones. Our tears are cries to God.

    God is our ever present help in the time of need. He will never leave nor forsake us because He is the omnipotent Father of mercy and grace. He understands the feelings of our infirmities. He sees our pains, hears our cries and comforts us when we are hurting. He is the ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE ONE AND ONLY GOD. Please worship HIM forever and ever. Amen

    God is awesome, omnipotent, loving, caring even when we offend Him he does not retaliate like us human. He keep patience waiting for us to still turn back to Him. Psalms 6 teaches us that no matter what happens to us God is not sleeping, he is with us and we should not fear anything even death.

    David was asking God for MERCY and Protection from his enemies...The Lord promise us that he will never leave us not forsake us...David was a man after Gods OWN heart...Gods answers are either Yes,No or wait...he has to be glorified...he said he will make our enemy our foot stool...we don't need to fear what man can do unto us..because of God is with us. He's more than those that is against us...
