General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has assured Nigerians that the country will overcome the challenges it currently faces, advising them to move closer to God who is the ultimate solution to the challenges.
“The prayer that a new Nigeria will emerge by our father in the Lord is a prophetic word regardless of whatever the nation is going through now. You will recall that Elisah prayed and prophesied in the midst of uncertainty and we see the result,” said Pastor Johnson Odesola, Adeboye’s Special Assistant on Administration and Personnel, who represented him at a worship service themed: “A Sure House”, which held at the RCCG National Headquarters in Ebute-Meta, Lagos.
“We trust God that history will repeat itself in Nigeria too. Nigerians should shun all forms of unrighteousness, move closer to God with their heart and not with mouth and diligently seek the face of God in prayer,” he said.
According to the man of God, human efforts have so far failed to restore hope and peace in the country. It is therefore crucial to seek divine intervention to the numerous challenges confronting the country.
Adeboye also stressed the need for leaders to seek the face of God in everything they do. He also advised the followers to adhere strictly to the basic truth and biblical doctrines.
