Notable gospel Actor and Director, Evangelist Seyi Pedro-Adetola has noted that the attitude of every believer in times of tribulation shows the depth of what he or she carries.
She made this known on Friday while speaking on the topic ‘Shining in Tribulation’ at the 7th Women Restoration Conference hosted by End-Time Sisters’ Conference International, ESCOM. Pedro-Adetola further thanked the conference convener, Evangelist Adenike Aderemi-Fashikun for birthing such vision which is blessing lives.
Tribulation, she said means distress or suffering resulting from oppression or persecution and to shine means to emit rays of light.
She stressed that tribulation is there to really expose what every child of God has on the inside, adding that she has not seen a Christian/genuine man and woman of God that has not experienced tribulation, saying If people listen to the story of these great men of God people will hear their tribulation, yet they shine.
Pedro-Adetola stated that oppression could come in so many ways. She therefore charged participants to wait on the Lord as God knows about their tribulation, noting that If God cannot give solution to individual tribulation, nobody can do it. “Don’t stop coming to the presence of God. Don’t ever get tired of worshiping God. Don’t bring your past into the present but look into the future. When God comforts a man he becomes absolutely comfortable. Being a child of God is alone to make you face tribulation,” she added.
She highlighted the causes of tribulation as Disobedience, Sin, Spiritual Forces, when you abide in the world and for the Glory of God to be made known. She however encouraged participants to never shift attention from Jesus, pray without ceasing, and always worship God.
