It was a moment of joy when ministers and their wives as well as members in the Sawla Area of the Church met to witness the christening and dedication of the first child of Overseer William and Mrs. Irene Asare after ten years of marriage.
Delivering the sermon at the dedication service which took place at the Gindabour Central Assembly on March 10th, 2020, the Area Head, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, who could not hide his joy quizzed, “How can anyone understand God fully?”
Speaking on the topic, “The God we cannot fully understand” taken from Psalm 115:1-3; 42:1-3, Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye said that, God cannot be fully understood because He is sovereign.
He mentioned that man has many plans but humans depend on God for their achievements. According to him, many Christians ask a lot of questions when they are in difficult situations. This, he stated, sometimes causes others to question the existence of God. “However, we must admit that, God allows things to happen to us for His glory to be manifested in His own time,” he stated.
“Considering the fact that Overseer and Mrs Asare are ministers, a lot of people were expectant that God would do a miracle in their marriage as a prove of God’s faithfulness to the gospel they preach. Yet, God was silent while they persistently and earnestly prayed for a child. Thanks be to God, that in His own time, He has made things beautiful to prove His faithfulness and sovereignty to Overseer and Mrs Asare,” he said.
Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye, therefore, admonished Christians to fully accept the sovereignty of God and appreciate that God is Omniscient and wants His deeds to be known. He entreated Christians to trust in the Lord at all times, thank Him in all circumstances, pray at all times and have faith in the Lord in times of difficulties.
Overseer William Asare the District Minister of Gindabour District in Sawla Area, and his wife were blessed with a bouncing baby boy on 8th January, 2020, having married for ten years without an issue. In their response, they thanked God for His faithfulness by blessing them with a child after a decade of childlessness.
