GENERAL Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has called on Nigerians in leadership positions at different levels to imbibe the fear of God and depend absolutely on Him for the country’s economy to witness a divine turnaround.
Addressing leaders in government as well as business executives at a special prayer session for the nation’s economy at the church’s national headquarters in Ebute-Metta, Lagos, Pastor Adeboye averred that Nigeria would move from a prostrate economy to witness a flood of abundance if those managing the nation’s economy as well as business owners will be righteous in their dealings and let God be their source.
He argued that God has the power to transform a period of famine to that of plenty within 24 hours, pointing out that “what we call minimum wage in Nigeria is not enough to meet the needs of the workers but with the power of Almighty God, things will turn around for good in Nigeria. If we are to move from not enough to flood of abundance, we must fear God, draw closer to God, honour Him, seek Him in whatever we do. The Bible says that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.”
Speaking on the thme; “Flood of abundance”, he emphasized the need for all Nigerians to give God priority attention in everything we do by serving Him with all our hearts and give to Him those things He demands from us for Him to bless us; like paying our tithes and honouring God with our first fruits.
Adeboye further assured that there can be instant turn around for Nigeria, if the nation’s leaders at every level would turn to God with all their hearts, stating; “nothing goes for nothing. The price for breakthrough is giving God the first position in our lives, our endeavours and our businesses and our breakthrough is guaranteed.”
In a similar development, Special Assistant to the General Overseer, (Admin. & Personnel), Pastor Johnson Odesola said the special prayer is not the first time such a prayer meeting would be held, this special one was premised on supporting the new government on what it is doing.
He lauded the present administration for the recovery exercise of stolen money from those that indulged themselves in such selfish and wicked acts, adding that God who opposes every inordinate ambition and commanded that ‘man should not steal’ cherishes the steps being taken by the government and prayed that God would see it through.
