Folu@74: What Women In Ministry Can Learn From My Wife – Adeboye 

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has identified what women in ministry, especially wives of clerics, can learn from his wife that’ll help them succeed in ministry.

Stonix News reports that wife of Pastor Adeboye, Pastor Mrs Folu Adeboye, clocks 74 today July 13, 2022 and the former has decided to let out one of her virtues that can assist women in ministry to achieve success.

Speaking in Wednesday July 13 Open Heavens devotional titled: ‘The Woman In Ministry,’ Pastor Adeboye praised his wife for being a pillar of support in doing the work of God effortlessly.

He identified the ‘heart of compassion’ as one of the greatest virtues of his wife that has greatly helped in navigating the RCCG in the right direction under God all these years.

“Today is my wife’s birthday and I just want to share some things that women in ministry can learn form her walk with God.

“One of the most obvious qualities my wife possesses, which has helped her succeed in ministry even as it has greatly impacted my walk with God, is her compassionate heart.

“If you know anything about love, you know that love gives. Not only does she give substance, she also gives time and affection.

“She is always willing to spend and be spent for the sake of the sheep (2 Corinthians 12:15).

“Many people think that she gives because we have been blessed by God now; what they don’t know is that she has been giving on this same scale even when things were tough for us.

“There was one day I almost stopped her when she gave our last tuber of yam to someone in need.

“If you want to succeed in ministry, you must be willing to spend and be spent,” he enthused.

The octogenarian averred that “Until God has seen your compassion for the few sheep He has given to you, He will not give you more.”

He also admonished women who are in ministry with their husbands to earn trust from their husbands while doing God’s work.

“When the Bible says in Proverbs 31:11 that the heart of the virtuous woman’s husband safely trusts in her, you need to ask yourself, “Can my husband safely trust me with certain parts of his ministry and not be bothered at all?” if you are to be his help meet – suited to his needs, yet he has to handle everything, then what exactly are you helping him with?

“There are departments in The Redeemed Christian Church of God that I don’t even bother myself about at all and I have never heard a bad report from them in all the years that my wife has been handling them.

“She handles the children’s ministry, the hospitality unit feeding of the guests and even feeding of the millions of people who come for our programmes. My heart safely trusts in her and I have never regretted it,” he noted.

While speaking directly to husbands of female ministers, the renowned Ifewara-born mathematician asserted that wives have stupendous role to play in their ministries, adding that his level of success would have been limited without the support and help of Folu.

“Your wife has a big role to play in how far you will go in ministry. I know I certainly wouldn’t have enjoyed this level of success without my wife by my side.

“She is a special blessing from God to me. She supports me spiritually too.

“She prays for me constantly and many times joins me in fasting for 40 days and nights.

“God bless you, my darling wife. Together, we will finish well, in Jesus’ name,” he prayed.
