The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Friday May 7, has finally broken his silence following the death of his son, Dare Adeboye.
He recently revealed this while preaching at his church’s May 2021 edition of its Holy Ghost service, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, everyone should keep thanking God and saying “It is well” even in the face of crises.
He added that Christians should learn to never blame God for anything because He always knows best.
His words, “Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children e.t.c and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God.”
“God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her. What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God, I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same with ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command. (Lamentations 3:38).”
“Finally in all things let’s learn to say thank you father and It is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name.”
