Popular Nigerian preacher, Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, recently took to his social media page to narrate a story of how God sent food to him and his poor uncle whom he was living with then, back in 1956.
Pastor Adeboye narrated how a kid had brought pounded yam, vegetable and chicken to them, items which were meant for another person but they only knew after they had eaten. Pastor Adeboye told the story and prayed for his followers to receive undeserved miracles.
Years ago, I think it was in 1956, I was living with my uncle who was poor but I was poorer. If he had anything, we shared and when there is nothing, there is nothing. There was this day we were very hungry and there was no way food could come at all. Suddenly, a young girl came and said, “My sister said I should give you this pounded yam, vegetable and chicken.” My uncle said “I don’t know your sister. Are you sure”? The girl insisted so we took the food and my uncle said he would look for a gift to give her some other time and she left.
As soon as she left, we descended on the pounded yam and as soon as we finished it, the girl came back and said the food was not for him. I decree to you today, the miracle you don’t deserve, the Lord will send it to you this week.
The story has since gone viral and has attracted several reactions from social media users. One of those who have reacted is popular religious critic and OAP, Daddy Freeze.
In a social media post which could easily be seen as a subtle reaction to Pastor Adeboye’s story, Daddy Freeze insisted that Christians should stop praying for undeserved favours as they ought to work for everything they get. Freeze opined that Nigeria’s poverty and leadership crisis is based on the buffoonery of unmerited favour.
