Your Destiny Is In Your Hands, Kumuyi Tells Nigerian Youth

Your Destiny Is In Your Hands, Kumuyi Tells Nigerian Youth

Ahead of the upcoming general elections in Nigeria, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Dr. William Kumuyi, has urged ‎Nigerians not to be discouraged by the challenges currently facing the country.

Kumuyi, while speaking on Wednesday during a two-day ministerial visit and campus crusade organised by the Campus Christian Mobilisation Committee of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, urged “Nigerians to take their destiny into their hands”.

“People should not be discouraged by whatever problems they are facing now, either as individuals or as a nation,”‎ Kumuyi added while ministering to thousands of people at the new religious ground of the university.

Punch newspaper reports that in a bid to buttress his encouragement, the famous pastor described the different types of people on earth, saying some of them saw themselves as “grasshoppers’ and those who perceived themselves as “conquerors.”

He concluded his address by saying that, “‎Nigerians should put their trust in God and never be discouraged by any obstacles that may intimidate them to look inferior in their own eyes.

“There is a need to be like the Biblical Caleb, who never allowed the towering, scary figure of the giants they saw to dissuade them from entering the land of Canaan. Caleb gave a positive accounts of what they saw and encouraged others to be optimistic. You are what you think you are.”
