God Gave Me The Best Wife In The Universe—Adeboye

“If not for my wife, I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’m doing today. I thank God for her life. She’s the best wife in the universe. If you have any wife that’s better than her, you should be afraid, because that won’t be a human being again”

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said God gave him the best wife in the universe.

Speaking at the national headquarters of the RCCG at Ebute Metta on his 40th anniversary of becoming the general Overseer of the Church on the theme, “ Sunrise”, Adeboye said he’s proud of his wife.

“If not for my wife, I wouldn’t have been able to what I’m doing today. I thank God for her life. She’s the best wife in the universe. If you have any wife that’s better than her, you should be afraid, because that won’t be a human being.”

“I thank my father in the Lord, Pastor Josiah Akindayomi who made me the General Overseer. When he called that he was going to ordain me a pastor, me and my wife fasted for 14days for God not to make it possible. It was because I was afraid of sliding into poverty again having seen what poverty is. Because in those days, to be a pastor is to be sentencing into poverty. When he said I would succeed him, I turned it down that he should choose somebody else. But he said he knows what God told him, but if I’m not ready, he won’t force me. And because of his love for me, I obeyed him. And it’s the covenant that God had with him that we are operating under today.” He said. 

Narrating his experience in the last 40 years as general overseer of the RCCG, Adeboye said the journey has not been easy nor smooth, but what kept him going was the ability to hear from God.
