Nigeria @ 62: Christains Holds Thanksgiving Service As Nigeria Celebrates Independent.
According to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, despite its difficulties, Nigeria’s future would be far more wonderful and peaceful than its past, and the country’s lights will shine brightly with opportunities, equity, justice, and righteousness.
At the National Christian Centre in Abuja’s 62nd Independence Day anniversary service on Sunday, Professor Osinbajo made this statement. In Jesus’ name, the Vice President promised the congregation that “every year would be happier for you, more magnificent, more prosperous, and more peaceful.” He also conveyed warm greetings from President Muhammadu Buhari.

“A nation of opportunities, equity, and justice; one that is safe, prosperous, and governed by moral principles. We are certain that God, who created the sky and the earth, will keep His promises to this country even though what we currently see may appear hopeless and gloomy.
On this occasion of the interdenominational ceremony to honor the 62nd Independence Anniversary of our Republic, I send you the warm congratulations of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Let me also extend my congratulations to His Eminence, Dr. Daniel C. Okoh, the new president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, as well as to all of the new Executive members (CAN). In the name of Jesus, I pray that your term will benefit our country and offer blessings, illumination, and inspiration.
We shall commemorate Nigeria’s 62nd birthday in a few days. Nigeria is made up of men, women, and children who are Nigerians; it is not a natural person.
Therefore, when we say that we are celebrating Nigeria’s birthday, we are actually honoring the birthday of all Nigerians, no matter where they may be located within this enormous country.
Therefore, in addition to praying for Nigeria today, we also pray for each and every Nigerian as well as all of our friends.
I shall therefore pray for Nigeria and the Nigerian people this evening. Deuteronomy 33.25(b) has my favorite birthday blessing: “As your days, so shall your strength be.”
What does “as your days so shall your strength be” mean in this prayer? It implies that as you age, you will become stronger in a variety of ways.
The first is that as you age, you will get physically stronger and healthier, in the name of Jesus. According to Deuteronomy 34:7 of the Bible, Moses was 120 years old when he passed away. And neither his eyes nor his inherent vigor were faded. For the normal human, getting older causes them to slow down, produce less, or even become barren. The Word of God, however, tells Nigeria today that this would not be the case.
Even as you get older, you’ll produce more. You won’t get weaker as you get older. And in the name of Jesus, each Nigerian will bear more fruit as they age and get stronger every day.
Psalms 92:13–14 of the Bible declare that people who are planted in the Lord’s temple will thrive in the courts of our God. They will remain young and healthy until old age and continue to bear fruit. In the great name of the Lord Jesus, it shall come to pass for you and everything you cherish.
The blessing “as your days so shall your strength be” also implies that God’s promises will be fulfilled in your life each day. In Genesis 12:2–3, God promised Abraham, “I will bless you, I will make you a large nation, I will magnify your name, and you shall be a blessing. All the families on earth will be blessed through you, and I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.
Because God added the promise that through Abraham, all the nations of the globe would be blessed, let me reiterate these blessings for Nigeria, for those of you who are present, and for every Nigerian.
Therefore, in the mighty name of Jesus, you will be a great nation, and God will bless you. Anyone who blesses you will also be blessed, and those who curse you will also be cursed.
Another implication of this blessing is that every day, every month, and every year will be better, happier, more prosperous, and more joyful than the one before it. As your days, so shall your strength be
The splendour of this latter temple, says the Lord of hosts, shall be greater than the old, says the Word of God in reference to this nation, Haggai 2:9. The Lord of Hosts declares, “And I will give peace in this location (in this nation).”
Nigeria’s future will be considerably more wonderful and peaceful than her past, and the same is true for you. In the name of Jesus, may each year be happier, more glorious, successful, and peaceful for you.
“Your strength shall be like the days of your life.”
Another consequence of this gift is that you will have enough strength—physical, mental, spiritual, and even financial—for every new season, circumstance, and challenge. In the name of Jesus, you will have more than enough for each new phase of your life.
Brothers, we are standing at the entrance of a new country, and its lights are flashing brightly. The country of God’s promises; a country of chances, of equality and justice, a country of safety and prosperity, a country of laws and righteousness.
Even if the situation as it stands right now seems gloomy and hopeless, we have faith that God, who created the heavens and the earth, will keep His word regarding this country. Indeed, He claims that not a single good thing that the Lord had said to the house of Israel had failed in Joshua 21:45. All things happened.
And we make the proclamation that nothing positive that the Lord has said about Nigeria will fail in this country. In the name of Jesus, anything will happen.
Finally, we proclaim in the name of Jesus that each and every resident of this country, as well as each and every family represented here, is still to see their best years. In the great name of Jesus, every promise that God has made to you will be fulfilled.
Enjoy your 62nd anniversary!
