Can I preach this beautiful Monday afternoon? Have you ever looked back and all you want to do is thank God? I’m not talking about the thanksgiving that comes because you have everything you need or want or because you just got a positive answer to what you’ve been praying for but the no strings attached gratitude that comes from just knowing that God is God! Even in the midst of darkness, He is God! When the answer is No, He is God! When you need healing for your body, mind or finances, He.Is.Still.God!!! I call Him, OGHENETEGA, OLUWATOBILOBA, AGBARARA GBRURURU, OLORIHELORENYI… If God has been good to you, gather here and praise Him with me by calling Him the best name you can in your local dialect. Let's go… #PraiseGodMonday #GodIsGreat #rmdsaysso suit @taryorgabriels
