My shame turned celebration Ooni says during CAN prayer
Following a year of tribulations, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has stated that his shame has turned to celebration.
On Saturday in Ile-Ife, Ooni said this at the Grand-Finale of New Year Prayer organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria at Afewonro Park, Enuwa Square.
Oba Ogunwusi, who led various Christian worship songs and praises during the service, clarified that it was important to always praise and appreciate the Lord Jesus Christ.
"When I look back, I see that my life has been full of God's wonders and miracles despite all of the challenges I've faced, but the Lord has given me victory over them all today."
Last year, I sat here with a lot of tribulations and storms of life that I couldn't explain, but to God be the Glory, my shame has turned to celebration.
"I observed where I started, hitherto, the Lord has helped me. The Lord is clearly stated to me to be alive. "Anyone who claims there is no God is a fool," the traditional ruler said.
He urged Christians to cling to Jesus Christ, saying, "Truly, He is the son of God, and He is the one who lives on the throne with him (Ogunwusi).
Ooni stated that no one who worked with God ever lost, and that money is not everything in life.
He considered good health, safety, and feeding to be examples of God's goodness.
The traditional ruler urged CAN officials not to wait for God's approval, but to strive to serve God wholeheartedly.
"For He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him," Ogunwusi said, quoting the Bible.
Ooni reaffirmed his commitment to serve God and humanity for the rest of his life, as well as to work for the growth and development of Ile-Ife, Osun, the Yoruba race, and the country as a whole.
He urged everyone to always appreciate God and put their trust in Him in order to receive all of their life's requests from Him.
Oba Ogunwusi has warned youths not to let politicians incite them to violence and other social vices, especially before, during, and after the upcoming general election.
The Superintendent for Christ Apostolic Church, Oke Isegun, Moore District Coordinating Council, Pastor Mathew Adejumo, told the congregation in his message at the event that God still has ancient powers.
Adejumo, whose message was titled "Be Still," and whose bible verse was taken from Mark 4:35-41, stated that God is still capable of calming every storm in each individual's life and in the country.
The superintendent urged Christians to serve God with all their might and power this year in order to reap the benefits inherent in God.
