Adeboye asks Jonathan, others to seek divine guidance

Ibadan – The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has  urged Nigerian leaders to seek divine guidance in order to fast track the nation’s development.

Adeboye made the call at a two-day forum  organised by the Redeemed Christian Family Fellowship of the  University of  Ibadan.

According to the renown cleric, astute leaders  always seek the help of  God in the course of  ensuring good governance.

He said: “According to the Book of  Proverbs  21:1, the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases.

“This passage tells us that we do not literally own the life we live and this  makes us accountable to the Creator. He graciously grants our good desires if we humbly look up to Him for help.

“Another passage supporting this is found in John 14:14, which says, you may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

“ Our leaders’   intentions are good, but they need  God’s backing,’’ he said.

Adeboye also  advised  Nigerians  to pray for  their leaders, adding that they should  keep hope alive in this period of  national transformation.

“Psalms 30:5b says weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. Let us look unto God for He shall lead us all the way and make us sing a new song.

“All the problems we may encounter shall not overtake us, rather they have been ordained to refine us and make us better.

“The cleansing has begun and there is no going back. Nigerians shall sing a new song amidst the trials. Pray without ceasing, especially for the nation and our leaders,’’ he said.

The programme was  organised  to offer  prayers to God for the nation. (NAN)
