44 YEARS AGO DADDY ADEBOYE CAME TO OTUKPO SPENT 3 DAYS TRAVELING ON THE ROAD TO PREACH AT OTUKPO AND SLEPT ON A BENCH.
44 YEARS LATER HE ARRIVED TO PREACH IN AN EXECUTIVE HELICOPTER AT THE KING’S PALACE
DON’T BE IN A HURRY TO ARRIVE SO THAT YOU DON’T PATRONIZE NATIVE DOCTORS.
DILIGENCE IS THE MAJOR HIGHWAY TO PROMINENCE.
DON’T GIVE UP, KEEP ON DOING THE RIGHT THING. REWARD IS COMING, THE RESULT IS COMING; DON’T GIVE UP AT ALL.
Labour is the key to dignity; diligence gives you dignity. Like you all know, we were in Otukpo over this weekend, we left here on Sunday after the service, preached on Sunday evening and by Monday, God’s servant, Daddy G. O, Pastor E. A Adeboye was in town and at the crusade ground, Light Up crusade that is holding to mark his 80th birthday is ongoing and then he said to me; 44 years ago, was the last time he came to that place (1978); it took him 3 days journey on the road to arrive, the bridge where he was coming around Oron, the bridge broke, trailer blocked the road – all manner of suffering and they were carrying a new born baby.
When he arrived the town for the program he came for, where he slept; he slept on a bench (1978). 44 years later, he arrived at the king’s palace in executive helicopter; helicopter that landed and waited till tomorrow. He drove from that place, not in a car or motor; a machine that rose.
When he arrived, he didn’t sleep on a bench. I saw everything and the summary is; diligence. Just be at it. Easy come, easy go – don’t be in a hurry to arrive so that you don’t patronize native doctors.
There are so many people who are in a hurry to become, so either they become native doctors themselves or they patronize one in a hurry. At that time, nobody knew him; this time, the chiefs of the land were all there to honour him.
The Governor of the State, drove all the way from the State capital to come and receive him in the town there; everything stood still when he came. 44 years ago, who are you?
Where are you coming from? What do you want? It was small, small children; I was in that meeting, imagine how old I was at that time and he said, “Oh, those labours of those days are not in vain. If you look at some men and some people around that had even the slightest impact, then it wasn’t a waste.” Look at your neighbor and say;
“Don’t give up, keep on doing the right thing. Reward is coming, the result is coming; don’t give up at all.”
– They will not laugh at you. Your following God will not be in vain!
– They will not say you wasted your time and life!
