A LIFE TESTIMONY OF PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE.
Many years ago, while I was still struggling to pay my school fees. An old man met me and said: “One day, you will travel abroad as often as a woman goes to the market”.
I looked at him and received it. “Yes sir, thank you”. Although it appeared too incredible to me then but today, I spend more time abroad than I do in Nigeria.
I prophesy into your life that every good prophesy concerning your life will come to pass, no matter how incredible they are.
HERE ARE EIGHT ( SECRETS ABOUT PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU TO BURN FOR CHRIST.
1: Pastor Adeboye’s father was a farmer and a part-time traditional musician while his mother was a trader in locust beans. Such a humble beginning! Motivation: Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
2: Pastor Adeboye’s earliest vision in life was to be the youngest vice chancellor in Africa. Motivation: God’s plans for you are better than any plans you have for yourself. So, don’t be afraid of God’s will even if it’s different from yours.
3: Pastor Adeboye’s father died when he was in his final year in secondary school. He went back to school the same day after his father’s burial to write his school-leaving exams. He came out in flying colors and eventually won the best student’s prize. Motivation: God always has something for you, a key for every problem, a light for every shadow, a relief for every sorrow and a plan for every tomorrow.
4: At age 18 and about to leave secondary school, Pastor Adeboye had no pair of shoes to wear for the prize giving day. Since he would be mounting the rostrum, he had to borrow. He also borrowed a pant from a relative to wear for the same occasion. Motivation: We are all in the gutters but some of us are looking at the stars. There’s a better tomorrow for those who refuse to be limited by their backgrounds.
5: Pastor Adeboye started his university education at the University of Nigeria
