God is set to give Nigeria new beginning- Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has on Thursday said that God is set to give Nigeria a new beginning.
This is as he said that it is in the nature of God to create new beginnings and Nigeria is on course for one, regardless of all doubts.
Osinbajo said this during his address at the ongoing 25th Annual Convention of the Redeemed Christian Church of God–The Americas themed: New Beginning.
Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement titled ‘Nigeria Will Get A New Beginning – Osinbajo’.
Osinbajo, who is also a pastor in RCCG, cited the biblical story of Nathaniel who doubted whether any good thing could come out of Nazareth, and declared with optimism that despite people doubting if anything good would come out of Nigeria, the country will experience a new beginning.
He said, “Today, many men are saying the same about our nation Nigeria, even men of God, but this is the textbook case of how God works, He is set to give Nigeria a new beginning.”
In the midst of current travails, the God of new beginnings is about to change our story. He is about to do something new. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”
The Vice President added that the ideal person ready for a new beginning is one who requires the strength of God to show forth in their weakness.
He said, “God did not create us to be independent of Him, He did not endow us with the strength to succeed without Him…The God of new beginnings did not create us to be self-sufficient. We need Him.”
The Americas Convention of the RCCG also featured the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, his wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye, the Continental Overseer of the Church in the American Continent, Pastor James Fadel, and other guest speakers drawn from around the world.
