Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has urged Nigerians not lose hope that the country still holds with great promises and a bright future.
Osinbajo disclosed this while speaking at the Annual Thanksgiving Service of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) chapter on Saturday in Jos, Plateau State.
He advised citizens to speak always positively about the country in order to get the reality they desire.
The VP’s statement partly read, “This is a nation that God’s hand is laid upon… a nation with many great promises. We have so many expectations from God as He leads us by His Spirit.
The VP further noted that despite the complexities of some national issues,
“our God is the God of complex situations. He steps in when things get really complicated, He is not a man whose options are limited, He has no limits, no boundaries, no quotas, He is God; which is why from the very beginning of creation, He demonstrated that He is a God of the most complex and difficult situations.
“Even at creation, there was confusion; the earth was without form, it was bleak, dark and void, there seemed to be hopelessness and despair. But in all the confusion, the same verse says that God was right there, the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
“The word He spoke transformed the darkness, the insecurity, the fear, the conflicts, to light, peace, and joy. He spoke, and the situation was transformed…. if we want our personal circumstances to change or we want our country to be at peace, and to prosper, we, the saints of God, must declare it. We must speak the reality we desire.
“the people of God cannot speak like the people of the world (and say) ‘…the country is bad, this Nigeria is not working, this country will break up…’ that is death, not life. We carry life, we carry liberty from evil and oppression.
“So, we will speak blessings unto our land, our communities, and our families, we will use the blessings.”
