The General Overseer and founder of The Way of Holiness Chapel Worldwide, Pastor Johnson Oluremi Falade, has advised workers in Adeyemi College of Education (ACE), Ondo, to always spend their time wisely and put their trust in Jesus.
He assured that, by accepting his advice, they would be able to enjoy spiritual visitations and experience unusual miracles.
Falade, who is a chief lecturer and alumnus of the College, made the statement in a sermon he delivered at the February 2018 edition of the College-organised prayer meeting on Thursday, 1st February, 2018 in the institution.
Quoting from the Acts of Apostles chapter 3 verses 1-7 as well as chapter 4 verse 22 and Philippians 2 verse 5 to buttress his points, the religious leader stressed the need for people to always appreciate God for His provisions and preservation of their lives, while speaking on the topic entitled: New year, new testimony.
Reminding the congregation about the Bible story of the lame man as written in the Acts of Apostles chapter 3 verses 1-7, Pastor Falade emphasized the importance of having faith in God and His ability to change bad situation to good.
He explained that the lame man who was confined to one position for over 40 years as a beggar got an unusual miracle as he was healed, against his expectation from Apostles Peter and John, through the mentioning of the name of Jesus Christ.
He explained further that the miracle which changed the story of the man's life completely was made possible through the anointing of God and the authority of Christ."
He maintained: ''The name of Jesus Christ carries authority. The first three months that starts the year, January, February and March is the youthful time of the year."
''It is the time for people to remember their creator. The year is still young but what I want to assure you is that our creator is ready to answer and give us surprises when we pray to Him and obey His commandments."
Also harping on the need for staff of the institution to re-dedicate themselves to efficient service delivery, the preacher urged them to seek the help of Jesus for strength, stating that it was through that they would be able to surmount challenges that could come their way.
His words: "The best way you can solve your problems is to seek strength from the supernatural and Jesus is the only one that can give you strength and create opportunities for you to give testimony."
The programme, held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Auditorium, featured songs renditions, bible exhortation and offerings of prayer for members of the College management, staff and students as well as the country.
The prayer meeting was attended by members of the College Pastoral team, teaching and non-teaching staff of the institution from various departments and units including the Information and Public Relations Unit, Centre for Educational Technology (CET), among others.
