Rev. James Nda-Jacob, the Northern Regional Coordinator, Foursquare Gospel Church, has called on Christians to rely on God’s faithfulness in all circumstances.
Nda-Jacob made the call on Sunday in Abuja at the 9th Convocation of the Wuse District of the Church, with the theme: “Resting on God’s faithfulness.”
He said the current hardship in the country was not enough to doubt God, as He has never promised and failed, especially, those that love Him.
The cleric expressed optimism that God would reverse the decisions that the devil had made concerning the affairs of Nigeria, but urged Christians to remain steadfast.
According to him, when God makes a pronouncement, rely on Him, whether you are on the mountain or in the valley because He is a faithful God.
Nda-Jacob also urged Christians to emulate Abrahim who waited patiently over a long time and never doubted God until he received his miracle.
The cleric said unbelief was a thief of God’s blessing and therefore, urged Christians to be strong in faith and hold firm to God’s promises.
“Do not allow situations to make you bitter and angry. Learn to sow into the lives of people in difficulty, like Joseph did while he was in the prison,” he said.
In his remark, Pastor Sylvester Oriahi, Chairman, Convocation Committee, said the theme of the 9th convocation was timely in view of the need for Christians to rely on God.
He said there was no better time to rely on God as a nation, families and individuals than the current critical time of insecurity, famine, restiveness and other negative vices.
“At a time like this, we must hold on to our faith and continue to be obedient to God’s word and keep looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
“As we rely on the faithfulness of God, we shall surmount all the daunting challenges confronting us, because God has assured us that we are more than conquerors,” he said. (NAN)
