In a nation like ours, where many men of God are on a daily basis looking for ways of gaining prominence and exert themselves in a position to get public recognition, some men of God don’t even believe in showy publicity. While some try to ‘sell themselves’ and create a wave of popularity that they can ride on to gain power; some believe that it is only Jesus Christ that makes any man of God popular by meticulously following the words of God.
One of such notable Men of God that God has blessed Nigeria with today and who doesn’t believe in showy publicity is Prophet Oluwasesan Nasheem Lawal. He is the presiding man of God in charge of Land of Solution Evangelical International Ministry.
Though, some people believe that a tribute to a pastor amounts to bestowing undue praise to such man of God. What they however don’t know is that a tribute to a pastor is really a tribute to God for the work He has accomplished through such pastor and the privileged, sacred work God has given the pastor to do, of assisting God in His greatest work- the salvation of souls.
That is why a tribute to a man of God like Prophet Oluwasesan Nasheem Lawal is about showing esteem and respect for the office, the authority given to him by God, and thanking God first, and then the pastor, for being faithful in following God’s call.
As a man of God who doesn’t like undue praise and publicity, Prophet Lawal’s good reputation as a diligent servant of God is the reason for writing this unsolicited article to honour him on his birthday. The Bible in I Timothy 5:17 say: “Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.”
Truly, Prophet Lawal is one of the few men of God who follow God in every way. He obeys His commands with joy and do not live for the things of this life but for the things of eternity. Today, he is one the few men of God in the country making positive impact in the lives of individuals, churches and even the society at large.
The purpose of writing this article is to further encourage and inspire Prophet Oluwasesan Nasheem Lawal of Land of Solution Evangelical International Ministry to continue to do more as he remains faithful to God and his calling.
Even Jesus knew his Apostles needed encouragement. Before He died, He told Peter, I have prayed for you, that when you turn, you confirm the faith of the brothers.
Prophet Lawal is an extraordinary servant of God and an even more exemplary as a worshipper. He consistently encourages people to become worshippers of God more than anything. There are several things that make him a good shepherd. First of all, it is his humble spirit. He moves in such a quiet way but his presence is always known. He always speaks with humility and kindness. He loves his church and it shows in everything he does.
What stands him out is his generosity. He talks the talk and he walks the walk. His life is a reflection of his words. He is always there when you call on him. He is truly an astounding man of God and he possesses great leadership qualities. He is truly an inspiration to many. He is a very hardworking individual and many people admire him greatly for that. He is a pastor that encourages and prays for people; he always has a listening ear.
He is a man of God whom one can trust and believe in. Prophet Lawal is a man who does not compromise the word and shows no difference in people. He is a positive driving force in the church and society at large.
Prophet Lawal is also a man of prayer. He is always willing to pray for people if they have problems or concerns. He is even willing to pray for people outside the congregation and people he doesn’t even know! No wonder countless number of people have been freed from satanic bondages. His Church, Land of Solution Evangelical International Ministry is now a sanctuary for those who seek the face of the Lord in solving their spiritual problems.
Prophet Lawal, we thank God for giving you knowledge and wisdom of understanding. Your sermons are so touching and have inspired many in the church and outside the church to always strive hard to do the will of God no matter how little. As you celebrate your birthday, we wish you good health, happiness, and lots of beautiful things in this world and hereafter.
