TOPIC: You And Your Mentor (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Thursday, 7 June 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: – 2 Thessalonians 3:6-7
MEMORY VERSE: “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:1
The word ‘mentor’ does not appear in the Bible, but there are so many instances of people who are wiser and more experienced in the Bible, acting as mentor to someone younger or newer in faith. Moses mentored Joshua (Deuteronomy 31:23), Elijah mentored Elisha (1 Kings 19), Naomi mentored Ruth, Jesus mentored His Apostles, Paul and Timothy (Philippians 2:1-2).
What is mentoring? It is being a coach to a willing and ready individual. A mentor is a wise and trusted counselor or teacher, who has achieved a significant level of feats in his/her field. In our Memory Verse, Apostle Paul spelt out mentoring as his leadership model –very simple: “Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ.”
Who is your mentor? Some persons claim to be Christians but their mentors happen to be big-time politicians who speak in fables, wear exquisite attires, live big and ride ostentatious cars. Gehazi wanted to have the type of clothing like that of the Syrian war leader. He was under the tutelage of a great mentor, from whom he would have inherited great anointing but he chose to have a worldly mentor in his heart. He ended up a leper throughout his life and generations after him were not spared, they became sad reminders of this ugly episode in the Bible history. Your vision determines who mentors your life. Your life style and character would be impacted by your mentors’ vision and character.
A mentor guides by being a good example. Apostle Paul counselled Christians in Philippians 4:9 thus, “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” Do you behave like your father in the Lord, whose life is Christ-like or like a boss in the office who depends on his scheming ability? This is the counsel of the Lord as written in Hebrews 13:7 “Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.” You must not follow a satanic leader. Learn to be wise to choose a kingdom mentor. May God help you, in Jesus’ name.
A mentor whose mentor is Jesus will mentor you after Jesus.
Satanic mentors will not locate you.
1. Glorify the name of God Almighty who gave His only begotten Son to be your mentor.
2. I shall not lose focus on Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
3. Fake mentors in my life, disappear, in the name of Jesus.
4. Power that wants me to go astray, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every door opened to spiritual robbers in my life, be shut by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. Any conscious or unconscious link between me and any demon, be cut off by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
7. Power assigned to link me with evil mentor like Rehoboam, die, in the name of Jesus.
