Pastor Tolani Adeyemo, wife of the Pastor-in-Charge of Lagos Province 18 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has urged Nigerians to always give thanks to God, even with the present economic recession.
Adeyemo gave the admonition on Sunday while delivering a sermon at the 10-year anniversary of RCCG Ogun Province 8 Area/Zonal Headquarters, Isheri in Ogun.
She said that any nation which had the fear of God and was filled with righteousness was qualified for God’s favour.
“The nation may be passing through recession; we are not the first to pass through it, but as we thank God, he will roll away our challenges.
“In thanking God, we are making our requests known to Him; when we praise God for the little things we are receiving, He will surely come to the aid of the country.
“If we give thanks to God, He will favour the country; He will locate us and will take the country to the top,’’ she said.
The cleric urged the congregation to live a holy life, as it was only righteousness that could exalt a nation.
Pastor Olarotimi Oluyemi, the Pastor-in-Charge of Province 8, Heavens Glory Parish, urged Christians be holy and upright to attract God’s intervention.
He said that Nigeria and its citizens could attain higher positions and live above fear and failures if they stopped their sinful acts.
“Genuine peace and true progress come to nations which put their trust in God,’’ he said.
The cleric urged Nigerians to always praise God in spite of the current challenges facing the country, assuring them that “God who performs special miracles will never fail Nigerians’’.
According to him, it is going to be well for Nigeria, its time of overflowing will come and the challenges the country is facing now will be a thing of the past.
“God has good plans for Nigeria; God will restore and rebuild Nigeria,“ he said.
Oluyemi said that there was no situation that could not be salvaged by God and called on Christians to unite in prayers so as to overcome the challenges confronting them.
