“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.”
After his speech, Pastor Joel Osteen told his church members to welcome Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter North, both of whom were seated in the front row.According
to the Houston Chronicle, the Lakewood Church houses up to 50,000 weekly, apart from the millions of people who stream their services.
As revealed by AtlantaBlackStar, later in the evening service, West returned to the church for his iconic ‘Sunday Service’ performance.
According to the publication, Osteen and Kanye have been close pals since the rapper got born again, and they are regularly in contact. Kanye’s visit to the megachurch comes after he performed a surprise concert at the Harris County jail in Houston.
