The General Overseer, the Redeemed Christian Church (RCCG) worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has called on Nigerians at this crucial period in the nation to trust God for the country to come out of its quagmires, assuring them that they will never be ashamed.
He gave the advice while delivering his sermon yesterday at the RCCG headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta at the monthly thanksgiving service.
Themed “Looking Unto Jesus,” the cleric used the occasion to pray for different sectors of the economy and individuals such as business men and women, transporters, self-employed, housewives, husbands and their families.
Adeboye, who said there is nothing God cannot do, urged Nigerians to hold on to God tenaciously who is able to heal the country.
The cleric said: “It is a matter of priority as the Lord said in His Words that if Nigerians can put God first Who is the greatest Provider, Who also said that silver and gold is His, He will provide for the need of Nigerians and promote them.
“God is the Great Deliverer,” he said.
Speaking on a weeklong 71st Convention of the RCCG which holds between August 7 to 13, 2023, at the Redemption City, the General Overseer assured Nigerians to be ready for surprises on the positive side if they can confide in God with all their mind.
Fielding to questions from journalists present after the service, assisting Pastor in the Throne of Grace Parish, Adebayo Adeyemo said he was confident that participants should expect something beyond their personal desire, personal hope as God is capable of doing what we can think.
“Do you know sometimes we pray, sometimes we have problem and we want to come out of the problem. Sometimes there are challenges of life, and pray. God would do exactly what we ask for. But this season, God is saying He has an answer for every need, which is quite different from what we can think or imagine. God can do more than what we think.”
On the country’s political development, the hilarious gospel minister posited that Nigerians should exercise patience with the current political administration of President Bola Tinubu even as he settles down to work.
He was confident that with all President has done so far in the past two months or so, there is hope for the country.
“For the first time, we are seeing a leader who is focusing on the people. Everything he is saying is about the people.
“I am sure very soon that our refinery will begin to work and all I can advise the President is that he should continue to do what he is doing” he said.
He called on the youth to get themselves ready to fix themselves up with various opportunities that investment will bring their through government policies that are becoming attractive to foreign investors.
