General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Adejare Enoch Adeboye has expressed great thanks to God for giving him peace even in the face of confusion and turmoil
He made the thanksgiving confession on Friday at the May edition of the Holy Ghost Night while preaching on the topic, Overflowing blessings
He recalled how he was at peace with himself during a turbulent air journey some years ago. He said he was in the company of a famous evangelist and his wife adding that, despite the turbulence in the air, he maintained his equanimity.
Adeboye also narrated how God gave him peace of mind despite an earthquake experience while in Mexico. Despite the earthquake, he said he was not disturbed while those around him were unsettled. “But the Lord took over,” he said.
The RCCG overseer affirmed that peace is one of the blessings only God can give said. “There is a peace that passes human understanding. It is only God that can give that peace. I thank God that I have that peace.” He said.
Another blessing only God can give according to him is unspeakable joy. He noted how God used Peter to give joy to the women around Dorcas in the Bible by raising her from the dead.
He pleaded with his listeners to deploy the gifts of God for the benefit of others; adding also that the ability to pray and praise God are also things only God can give.
Continuing in his message, he urged his listeners to covet the gift of faith which he said is one of those things only God can give. He said the gift is necessary so they could disallow whatever the devil has done or is doing.
He urged them to affirm that death will not prevail over their lives and that all negative prophecies concerning their lives will not come to pass.
He recounted how God used him to pray for one of his “daughters” who had an accident and was written off but God brought her back to her feet.
In the course of the message, he said it is the prayer of the saints that has helped to put an end to covid-19. He also assured that Nigeria’s problem will soon be a thing of the past as Children of God raise their voice in prayers to God.
