The Zonal Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Life and Power Zone, Ikorodu, Lagos, Pastor Mich 'Tunji Oladapo has urged Nigerians not to throw away their confidence in the Lord, saying this time will not last.

He said there is tendency for people to lose heart when they are facing troublesome situations, urging everyone to be very stronghearted and courageous.

While quoting Hebrews chapter 10 verse 33, Pastor Oladapo further said that great rewards await those who do not throw away their confidence in God in a time like this.

The Cleric stated this while ministering on the topic "Never Throw Away Your Confidence" at the recently held Sunday Service of the church which was live streamed on YouTube.

"Take whatever happens now with all joy. It is true that there is nothing to eat for some people in this period of lockdown, but the Bible encourages us that this time will not last. There are better days ahead. Do not throw away your confidence irrespective of the news you may be hearing concerning this present situation," Pastor Oladapo noted.

While commenting on the "the basis of our confidence" the Cleric said we have confidence in God because of Christ's delegated authority, noting that all authority and power on earth and in heaven has been given to Jesus Christ which include power over pestilence and to heal the sick.

He added that "in Luke chapter 10 Jesus Christ delegated this power to us and we are confident in Him because of His delegated authority. The basis for our confidence is that corona virus will not come near us. Jesus has the power to stop it and we have been given power to stop it also."

Pastor Oladapo continued that Christ's ability to answer prayers, assurance of His presence, the blessedness of being His people and blessedness of sitting in His place are also the bases of our confidence in Him.

"It is the will of God that no pestilence or sickness should be our portion if we ask through prayers. The will of God is that we should live in peace. Corona virus is not His will for us. Instead of casting away your confidence, call upon Him in prayers. We have the confidence that anywhere we are Christ is there. His presence is prominent in our lives. Our confidence is based on the assurance of His presence."

"We are confident that we are going to overcome this present situation because we belong to Him. Jesus who is in us is greater than any virus or pestilence. When we sit in His secret place, we shall be under His shadow. Regard or see what is happening as a test of your faith. If you can maintain your integrity in a time like this and you decide not to deny Him, He will surprise you," the Cleric said.
