Pastor Tosin Sowemimo has said that Christians should cultivate the habit of thanking God.
The cleric made the remark at the June 30, 2022, Thursday Showers service of The Fountain of Life Church in Ilupeju, Lagos.
“It’s human to take things for granted sometimes, but it’s amazing how everything we have and is by His grace. People like you and me made plans yesterday, but somehow, all those plans are gone,” she said.
The clergywoman posited, quoting Hebrews 11:1-7, that just as God always ministers to His children, believers should also minister to God in praise and worship for all He has been and done for them.
Another way believers can minister to God is by believing He is for them and with them in every situation they find themselves.
While explaining faith, Pastor Tosin Sowemimo argued that God’s ways are sometimes not clear to humans, but once believers trust and follow His instructions even when they don’t seem to understand, they will have incredible testimonies.
“You don’t have to see anything; you don’t even have to understand what the Lord is saying, but once you have His promise, instructions, and words, just do it, and you will get to where He is leading you,” the preacher maintained.
She then encouraged everyone to trust God and praise Him regardless of their circumstances.
“Don’t ever compare yourself to anyone. I don’t know where you are at, but what I do know is that He is God. He will never change nor fail, and you need to get to a point where you will trust Him no matter what,” she told the worshippers.
Before her exhortation, worshippers sang songs of praise to God as it was the last Showers service for June, coinciding with the last day of the year’s first half.
The congregants also shared remarkable testimonies of divine healing, gift of life and supernatural intervention. One of them was Mrs Adeyemi, who appreciated God for delivering her from sickness; deliverance from sudden death over Sister Adenike’s daughters and celebrations of life for Sister Evelyn and her daughter, among others.
