The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Friday night broke his silence after the death of his son, Dare Adeboye, declaring that he cannot question or blame God but rather thank Him.
NaijaNewsNow reports that Dare, who was resident in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, died in his sleep few weeks to his 43rd birthday.
Adeboye, while preaching at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost Service, encouraged everyone to always thank God and say ‘It is well’ even in the face of crises rather than “blame and question God.”
He said: “Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children e.t.c and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God.”
Making reference to a biblical verse, Ezekiel 24:16, he said: “God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her.
“What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God, I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same with ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command.
“Finally in all things let’s learn to say thank you father and It is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name,” Adeboye said.
Speaking further, the retired mathematics teacher noted that peace is one of the blessings only God can give, saying: “There is a peace that passes human understanding. It is only God that can give that peace. I thank God that I have that peace.”
