BY ANKELI EMMANUEL, Sokoto
Reverend Adaji Olobo Michael has admonished Christians to stop complaining about hardship and have confidence in God that owns everything.
Adaji, who is the newly posted Reverend of Christian Evangelical Fellowship of Nigeria (CEFN), Sokoto Missionary zone further note that, people should cultivate the habit of thanksgiving at all times.
Preaching on the topic, “Thanksgiving commands fullness and abundance”, Rev Adaji stressed that complaints only complicate matters and it never brings solutions.
“‘It’s irresponsible men that complain about their responsibilities. A complainer is an insult to God. Hence complaint is a manifestation of a frustrated man.
“God is the owner of all wealth hence you have no reason to complain about worrisome situations that you think God cannot help you out with.
“I pray for us this morning, that whatever God can do, may we not be ridiculed for it,” Rev Adaji stated.
While noting that Christians should always cultivate the habit of being happy for the progress of others, Rev. Adaji assured that, “somebody’s prosperity would not stop your own as God is ever ready to bless everybody at His appointed time”.
Continuing, Rev. Adaji said, “If God can bless somebody, then your failure is an insult to our God that owns all wealth.
“Why would you have God and be looking for the assistance of men that equally depend on God? God is not limited by any material things. Just be thankful to God that owns everything.
“If Jesus can use five loafs of bread and 2 pieces of fish to feed 5000 men besides women and children, then never complain as God is the master of difficult situations.
“The God we serve will always have a way out of all trouble situations. Even at the point of borrowing, do not complain, as Jesus borrowed the five loafs of bread and two pieces of fish from somebody amongst the multitude. But at the end, after they had all eaten to their satisfaction, the remnants were collected into 12 baskets. Meaning our God is able to make a way where all hopes are lost,” Rev. Adaji noted.
