The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Dr. David Oyedepo, has said that Nigerians will experience harsher economic challenges.
He, therefore, enjoined them to draw closer to God in order to survive the impending tough economic climate.
Oyedepo said this on Tuesday during the opening session of the annual Shiloh programme of the church in Ota, Ogun State.
“It looks tough presently but it’s going to get tougher in the days to come. Obedience to the terms of covenant will put you in total command. When all your obedience is fulfilled, all opposition is brought down,” he said.
Alluding to the Bible, the bishop said that recession was not a new phenomenon, urging the audience to be committed to God to overcome the financial challenges.
“However, from scriptures, all the children of the covenant, who walk according to biblical truth will always enjoy exemptions from the gross darkness and evils plaguing the world,” he said.
According to a statement from the church, the opening session was witnessed by over 2,000 delegates from 41 countries.
