302 – Our Shepherd Will Provide
July 10, 1988
We drove to Buffalo to hear Pastor Paul Yonggi Cho who pastors the largest church in the world, which is in South Korea. I always take notes and I summarized his message:
Pastor Cho taught on Psalm 23. It brought release from the pressure to have everything lined out and pre-planned before we leave Livonia. HE WILL PROVIDE. He is our Shepherd.
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on….But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you…. Matthew 6:25
In other words: don’t worry or strive.
Pastor Cho suggested praying 1 hour a day so that my soul will be restored.
He prays three hours a day—so his soul is restored and so that he is bold in the spirit.
He said to look to God instead of looking at what the enemy is doing. Even tragedy is turned to blessing when we are trusting God. Even in bitter experiences, God’s mercy is there.
Since Jehovah is my God, I have nothing to be negative about.
Everything is good with Jesus, whether there is sun or storm.
Lord Jesus, it’s all about faith in You, trusting you, not being afraid, keeping the faith going,
