Eschew self-doubt – Mahama to Ghanaians

President John Dramani Mahama has admonished Ghanaians to eschew self-doubt in their lives and rely on their ability to move forward.

17According to him, one of the major hindrances to development and success in one’s life and that of a nation is self-doubt.

Likening the life of Ghana to that of the journey the Israelites embarked on from Egypt to the Promised Land, President Mahama said despite the miracles God showed to his people, there were instances when they doubted the powers of God.

Speaking at the Light House Chapel’s Easter Programme dubbed “Good Friday Miracle Service” at the Black Star Square on Friday, President Mahama said there was the need for Ghanaians to trust in themselves in order to succeed in life.

“In the spirit of Easter, I say that one of the things that we have to do as a nation is to cancel self-doubt. We see other nations and we admire them and we say Korea has made progress, Malaysia has made progress but that is because they believed that their nations can be great.”

“…But if half the time we say that we are useless and we can’t do it and we can’t go forward, you won’t go forward. You have to celebrate your successes one by one, and that is why I say count your blessings and name them one by one and it will amaze you what the Lord has done,” he added.

President Mahama also used the opportunity to thank the Christian community and religious leaders for their constant prayers for peace in the nation and the violence free atmosphere the country has enjoyed over the years despite terror attacks in neighboring countries.

“I want to thank Bishop Dag and all the religious leaders for the prayers of intercession they continue to do on behalf of our nation. Why are we called an oasis of peace in a violent sub-region? Why have we not been afflicted with civil war like many other countries in our sub-region have been afflicted with? It’s because our religious leaders have interceded with God and God has heard their prayers and He has put his hand on Ghana and said my children you will not be afflicted by the violence in your sub region.”
