He said:

“I know that God’s been calling me for a long time, and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time.”

The 42-year-old entrepreneur recounted his time in the hospital after he canceled his 2016 Pablo tour following health issues of exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

He recalled that he was receiving visions of starting a church while in the hospital bed at UCLA. West also shared that his famous arrogant and cocky character was now a thing of the past as God is now using him to work wonders.

In his words:

‘I’m here in service to God, and no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him.”
