  • Theodora M Johnson on Psalms 37:25
    In times like these we need a Savior... That song is in my spirit this morning. So much adversity is now happening in my life. BUT God, through prayer has brought me out of the troubles--some I caused when I was young and others as I got Saved and older. He reminded me of the scripture, Psalm 37:25. "I have been young, now am old yet have I not seen the righteous for- saken, nor his seed begging bread."

    Let's all as God says, "Remember Me",

    I am the Lord God your Savior.

  • Paul on Psalms 37:25
    Christians do not rely on the world for their sustenance but on God. Therefore if a true Christian begs for anything he will never beg the world - He will beg God. God is his source, his light and his everything. His philosophy and his way of life will never be one of begging.
  • Juan Ramos on Psalms 37:25
    For I am A living exsample to this scripture.Over AND over God has been there for me.To many to write now.BUT in a short vertion on one.The LORD told me to go fish for food.I came back home with enoff fish to last till my next pay check a week away.One I had no money for bait,two God told me to throw the line out move it three feet in and let it sit on the bottom.And in less then one hour I went home with eight good size fish.It took me longer to clean them then to catch them.
