2016 IS YEAR OF ‘ALL SUFFICIENCY’ FOR NIGERIA – BISHOP OKONKWO

The Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo, has stated that the year 2016 will be a year of “all sufficiency” for Nigeria notwithstanding current economic challenges.
Okonkwo, who observed that human economic theories and postulations were failing the world over, admonished Nigerians to put their hopes for economic prosperity in God.
In his New Year message issued Wednesday, the clergyman stressed that the current socio-economic situation in the country demanded that “all Christians should trust God for all-round sufficiency in the coming year because daily, socio-economic theories and human postulations are falling apart before our very eyes.”
He said: “It is no longer about being astute, skilled or being a professional but it is now all about God and His infallible word.
“Daily, concepts and great ideologies are failing but it is only the word of God that cannot fail as it remains reliable and constant. It is, therefore, the connection you have with God, who has promised His sufficiency that will stand in the coming year.”
He challenged Nigerians to pray to God to give political leaders the wisdom and the grace to steer the ship of the nation towards God’s intended destination. He also urged them to pray for an end to insurgency, noting that there could be no development if there was no peace.
Releasing a positive prophetic message at variance with many predictions made so far, Okokwo said: “I have prayed and I know that the year 2016 promises to be a year of all sufficiency for us as a nation. I declare that God will cause us to have abundance individually and collectively in the coming year, but only as we seek Him.
“I encourage everyone to remain steadfast in the faith knowing that God has just started with us as a people and as a nation. This is only the beginning as we have not seen anything yet. There shall be pleasant surprises in 2016.”
