Dele Momodu@60: You will begin to experience divine intervention like never before – Pastor Tunde Bakare

Pastor Tunde Bakare
Well Bob Dee, I just want to thank God for your life. I have heard so many things listening to  people, saying wonderful things about you. I want to say, I have not found a single lie or exaggeration in all that has been spoken.
Our parts crossed many years ago in London, England, when you first interviewed me. I remember clearly that Ovation was still black and white then. Thereafter, I began to see you grow in leaps and bounds and I am eternally grateful to God.
I want to say a few things, before I pray. Many people do not know that you are a bridge builder, you have built bridges for people to cross to places where  they could not even envisage that they would get to. You have been a blessing to a countless number of people that we know.
You have been good to me too. I have many instances. How can I forget the birthday tribute you wrote when I turned 50 some years ago. I still glaze it because it always brings warmth to me to encourage me when I face challenges and vicissitudes of life. It is not by accident that you are the only product of your father and mother, so am I. And we began from more or less the same spot in life. I was born into a declining wealth and raised in abject poverty.
Your life is an inspiration and it has been an inspiration to so many people. But there are three things I want to say today about you.
Number 1 is what the Yorubas say Eni se oju bi ose, bi eni ti o seyin. I have seen you standing  shoulder above your generation. I cannot count how many times you have held the torch to pay attention to the sacrifices of MKO Abiola. You would  do it with such vigour like you are his first son. You will go to the extent of celebrating him again and again.
And I remember the large coverage you gave to late Chief Deinde Fernandez, but a time came when Chief Deinde Fernandez was not at the cutting age of so many things, at his funeral, you left everything to fly into Belgium where I had the privilege of preaching and where we had conversation about the departed one. That is the manner of person you are, to be there for people, whether in their presence or behind their back, long after they have gone, you  still say good things about them. That is very rare in our world.Many people eat and forget.
How I can thank you enough, many people thought I must have paid you millions of naira or thousands of dollars for the coverage you gave to my mother’s funeral. The Ovation TV and Ovation magazine, someone asked me jokingly that you must have paid lots of money for this. Like I have said before and I am saying it again, you did it unto the Lord, you  did not take a dime from me, and that is why Ovation will not die.It will outlast you, it will grow in leaps and bounds as you grow from glory to glory.
You know that you are one of my favourite columnists, I have read you this morning, and I would always call you to say wow, I agree with this. When you said accurate things even though they look negative to some people about the present government and President Buhari, I called you to say, I stand with everything you have said in that publication because it is the truth.
I want to thank you for making the difference in your generation, and my prayer for you, I am taking from Psalm 60 for your 60th birthday. I read this morning, where you wrote about the angels that God has send to your life.
I will read from Psalm 60 vs 2.”
2.You o Lord have made the earth tremble; You have broken it; Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.
3 You have shown Your people hard things; You have made us drink the wine of confusion.
4 You have given a banner to those who fear You, That it may be displayed because of the truth.
5 That Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and hear me.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic,  beyond it, the Lord will preserve you, the Lord will protect you, the Lord will lift his banner over you, your business will not go down the drain, you will not lack any support in this day and age, in the name of Jesus.
11 Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless.
12 Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
In the mighty name of Jesus, the Lord will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies, He would anoint your head with oil and your cup will runneth over. Those who helped you in the past will not regret helping you, He will raise you. You will begin to experience divine intervention like never before, in your businesses, that  you will sit back and say this is God doing it. From this day forward, you testimony will be this is not the work of  any man, it is the work of God. It is well with your spirit, it is well with your soul, it  well with the whole of your body. Thank you for being who you are and may God take you to higher grounds beyond your wildest imagination. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.Happy Birthday my dear brother and friend.
