I’m BP free at 81, says Adeboye

The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has revealed that casting all his worries on God has made him live even up to the age of 81 without blood pressure.

The clergy said this during his sermon on Friday morning, adding that he had decided to cast all his burdens on God and rest in Him while overseeing churches.

He explained that as one who oversees churches in many nations of the world, he cannot divide himself to be at different places at the same time.

He expressed confidence in God who is everywhere and can attend to issues, so he rests.

He reiterated that rest is needed for the body and soul because one can not end in shame with Christ.

In his words, “I am 81 by the grace of God; by His Grace, I oversee churches in several nations of the world. My blood pressure has always remained normal.

“Reports are coming from all over, but do I lose my sleep? I know I can’t be in Cambodia when I’m in Israel. I can’t be in two places at a time.

“But there is someone who is everywhere at all times. I trust Him to handle all the issues, so I rest. One of the things you need for your body and soul is rest. Trust him, He is the one who says, ‘say on to the righteous, it shall be well with him’. You can’t end up in shame if Christ is in you.”

According to a report by Daily Post, the clergy cited Psalm 18: as he emphasised the need to rest physically and relax in God spiritually, saying God can take care of those who relax in Him.

Also, he charged Christians to hold on to Jesus because “When you’re a Christian, you’re married to Jesus. You’re surrounded by a wall of fire. Anybody from outside who wants to come and touch you will be burnt.”

He added, “If you dare go out of the city of the wall of fire, you will be burnt. But if you are willing to stay within the confines of that city, you know who is your saviour, your healer, then you can rest.

“You will rest because when you obey your ‘husband’ and anybody who tries to fight you, they will be smitten before you. You don’t have to fight to win.”
