Wesley's Notes for Psalms 66:18

66:18 Iniquity - Any sin. In heart - If my heart had been false to God, although I might have forborne outward acts. If I had been guilty of that, by heart was set upon sin, or I desired only that which I resolved in my heart to spend upon my lusts.

    Galatians 6:3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

    There are so many things in the world a human could crave. Yet Satan sits and wait to use the desires of this world to destroy us. It is impossible in my case for Satan to have such a victory I can laugh at Satan for hardships have taught me to cleave to nothing. Here in lies his hatred of me While he plays the world like a fiddle when it comes to me Satan is out of strings.
