The Redeemed Christian Church of God’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has shared the key to his exceptional innovation, which has transformed the church from obscurity into a global organization.
Adeboye, who urged his haters to stop trying to figure out the key to his success, advised anyone hoping to succeed to make an effort to build a sincere relationship with the God of Wonders and follow His guidance regardless of whether it is convenient.
Speaking at the thanksgiving and special prayer service on the theme: “Season of Wonders” at the national headquarters of the church, Throne of Grace Parish, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, Pastor Adeboye recalled a series of encounters he had with God a long time ago which have formed the fulcrum of the growth the world is witnessing today.
In his words: “When I became the general overseer of the church things were hard then. The entire income of the church was less than my salary at the University then. By the time we have finished paying the pastors there is nothing left for the general overseer. And then I collected my gratuity from the government since I was working with the government before I resigned into full-time ministry.
“I was happy because it was big money and I said I will manage it until the church grows. Suddenly i realized that I am no longer working with government but now under a new management, so I asked God how He wants me to handle the money. I was thinking I would save some after paying my tithe but the Lord said said I should divide it into three, give one-third to this ministry, give one-third to that ministry and the remaining one-third to other ministry. That was though, I said yes Lord to the very first, the second my yes was very low and then the third, it was though. And then God said something, “son, I will be your source”.
“If you see the glory of today, there is a story behind it. Not only has God been providing mysteriously, I know some of you have been wondering how is he doing it
Stop searching, you want to know the secret? Go to the God of wonders”
Continuing: “By the special grace of God, we started the Holy Ghost service in 1986 and uptill now miracles are still happening. It’s because God of Wonders is in charge, from everlasting to everlasting He is God. If you have the God of Wonders, if He is your friend, you can have wonders at anytime.
