_ 072414 Mentoring

Good day everyone. Praise God for another day and another chance to stay on the path that leads to Him. As many of you know, I spend a lot of my time mentoring young people and in this day and age it’s much needed. There is biblical foundation for mentoring which I will share a part of today.

Today’s Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, I pray for everyone who must supervise anyone else. Parents and childcare providers must supervise children. Foremen must supervise the production workers in the industrial place. Administrative pastors must supervise administrative church staff. Teachers must supervise students. Office managers must supervise their office staff. The list goes on. Supervisory positions take special skills. Not every supervisor is a good one. I pray that You will give knowledge and expanding capabilities to those who supervise. I pray for wisdom, patience, biblical values and ethics, integrity, and everything supervisors need to be effective and carry out their responsibilities in a manner that is pleasing to You and beneficial for those in their homes, ministries, and workplaces. I pray for Your special touch on Christian supervisors, and for their protection from all harm and evil. Thank You, God. In the matchless name of Jesus, Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Man Who Has God’s Favor

“…Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.” – Zechariah 8:23

Today I am going to share with you something I have come to understand from the word of God. Few men of God have become extraordinary people of faith without the influence of mentors. A mentor is someone who takes responsibility for the spiritual and sometimes, physical care of another. It requires a commitment from the teacher and the student.

The bible tells us that Elijah mentored Elisha. Elisha became one of the greatest prophets in the entire Bible. One of the primary reasons for this was Elisha’s hunger. Elisha wanted a double portion of Elijah’s spirit. It was this hunger that drove Elisha to be sold out to God’s purposes for his life.

I have been privileged to have had many mentors throughout my spiritual life thus far. In each stage of my maturity, God brought new mentors who had unique gifts that the previous mentor did not have. God has given me the hunger to desire a double portion of those positive attributes of my mentors. This desire is sorely missing among many today. I fail to see the hunger among many who could be used greatly in the Kingdom. Instead, the cares of this world distract them. It is an attitude of a la carte versus an attitude of pressing in to the full measure of what God might have for them.

Who are the people of God He has placed in your life to help you in your spiritual walk?

Are you learning from them?

Are you seeking a double portion of their anointing?

What prevents you from gaining from their wisdom and experience?

God may have brought them into your life to prepare you to be a man or woman of God with great anointing. However, there is a time of training and waiting to prove out your own faith. Ask God today if there is someone He would have you mentor or be mentored by. I encourage you to read the story of the relationship of Elijah and Elisha in the book of Zechariah and let it minister to you as it did to me.
