Mentoring Means Much

Mentoring Means Much

As you learn from your master

Your role model, your teacher;

As an apprentice, a novice

Prepared to take advice

A student and disciple.

Learning from example

 

It requires humility

Perseverance, ‘teachability’

Taking the baton

From generation to generation.

The Fall and the Call

 

They

Were told

‘You can eat of

Any of the trees in

The Garden  except

The Tree of the knowledge

Of Good and Evil. The day you

Disobey , you will surely die.

But the serpent, the devil, came

Very cunningly and said, ‘Has God

Really said? Of course you will not die.

Your eyes will be opened and you will be

Like God.’ And Eve obeyed him and ate and

She gave to Adam, her husband and he also ate

And so we fell

Came short of

The glory of God

Fell from grace.

Adam and Eve

Were banished

The curse came

But thank God

Mercy also came

God made a way

For man to return

Through Jesus Christ,

By being born again.

 

Gen2:16-17,-3:: Rom3:23-6:23

If You Give an Inch He Will Take a Mile

The enemy can wear you out

Occupy you, to wipe you out

Keep you doing religious things

To deceive you as he clips your wings.

That is why we need to be discerning

Ex18:13-27

Moses nearly wore himself out

Jethro wisely bailed him out

Martha was all over the place

But Mary chose the best place

At His feet eating dainties of grace.

Luke10:42

Sambalath and Tobias tempted Nehemiah

But Nehemiah recognised the snare

‘Meet with us in the Valley of Ono.’

Nehemiah wisely declined: ’Oh No!’

I am pregnant my water will soon burst.

I will focus on my vision at all cost.

Neh6:1-3

 

 

See, I Have Gifted You

 

 

See, I have gifted you

and lifted you

from the mighty waters

snatched you from the hands

of principalities and powers.

 

I have opened your grave

and brought you out

for such a time as this.

You shall be ready and willing

In the day of My power.

They wanted to kill you

 before your time

but  I turned the table

and had the final word.

 

You must fulfil the will of God for you

In your generation, like David of old.

Fear not, because I am with you

And in you and for you

Wherever you go.

The giants you see today

will be bread to you.

So take your eyes off them and fix it on the Author and Finisher of your faith.

 

I will uphold you with my victorious right hand of rightness and justice.

I will be your shield and strength,

And your abundant compensation.

You are engraved on the palm of my hand and I will never

 forget or forsake you.

Be still therefore,

and know that I am God

I will be exalted among the nations.

I will be exalted in the earth.

I will fight for you

and you will hold your peace.

 

 

 

 

 

Let the sea roar and all that is it.

Let the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.

Let there be a sea-quake- a tsunami.

Be still and know that I Am God.

   

 

Let the storms gather and stammer

Let wicked spirits plan, conspire

strategise, forge, falsify and malign.

They will be scattered, cornered

and wiped out without trace.

 

You are sealed with a seal

a seal of authority;

a seal of My ownership;

the seal of the precious blood;

the powerful blood;

 

the efficacious blood-

that great price paid for you;

making you acceptable in the beloved.

 

See, I have given you a lift

To you go places

receive graces.

 

You must have a goal.

Without a goal

you have no go

anything goes;

you beat about the bush;

 have a merry go round;

many things are not done.

 

Without a goal,  you cannot

 see or seize the moment.

And momentum  unseen

cannot be tapped or harnessed

and it becomes an opportunity

that passes you by.

Without good organisation,

many things are not found;

you don’t excel; you may even repel.

You stagnate, vegetate, even retrogress

So ask for God’s help

to keep you organised,  motivated

focused with a godly goal

as to have a go and go for the gold.

It’s a Journey

 

 

 

With the passage of time

The child enters adolescence

And then into his youth

Progressing to a young adult

In the fullness of time

he becomes a MAN

What a journey!

The changes at

different stages

Bring maturity

The experiences

 are teachers

and shapers and mid-wives

birthing responsibility

accountability, humility,

purity, robustness. faith, leadership

excellence, patience, peace profound and parenthood.

en route the promised Land Pharaoh will pursue

Goliath will rise up and challenge Your advance

As you get closer you will see other giants like the children of Anak

 Don’t let them intimidate you. They will be bread to you

If the Lord is with you.

Have the spirit of Joshua and Caleb

To believe God in the face of odds

Above all have the fullness

of the Holy Spirit. He is God

and God’s agent of change

. He will oil the engine

 of change in your

exit and entry points.

 He will direct, comfort,

 counsel, teach, standby,

 intercede, strengthen,

reveal things to come,

give you the equipment

of the gifts of the spirit, guide

and anoint you to give you

a cutting edge, a tonic, a fillip.

You have to retreat to advance

like the Lord Jesus Christ.

and you will come out

in the power of the Spirit

energised to enter

and occupy

until He comes.

What a journey!

Jer29:10-13

Do You ‘Do God’?

 

Do you do God?

Do God and Live.

If you don’t do God

you will do Satan.

Unbeknown to you

It would be camouflaged

Like a front, a veneer

You will be deceived

Even self-deceived

Which is even worse.

 

You cannot sit on the fence

There is no fence in this business

You are either in or you’re out.

You are either for God

Or you’re against God

There are no ‘ifs ‘ or ‘buts’

And if you are against God

You are in a losing battle.

Better surrender and live.

Surrender and come

into the purpose of your life

Surrender and have peace with God.

 

 

 “ In an interview for Vanity Fair magazine, reporter David Margolick asked  Prime Minister Tony Blair  ( when he was in power) about his Christian faith. In a remarkable demonstration of the power of unelected media manipulators, chief spin-doctor Alistair Campbell interrupted the Prime Minister’s reply to say ‘I’m sorry, we don’t do God.’

 

How remarkable that someone who is not elected by the people can wield such power as to determine or influence what a Prime Ministers says.

That phrase ‘ We don’t do God became very popular as associated with this spin doctor and even influenced government policy.

Even today, those in authority in various in various echelon of society may not use that phrase but never the less believe in and practice ‘We don’t do God.’

That was why when a Christian offered to pray for those she was carrying for she was considered to have fallen foul of the established protocol. It made headline news.

That was also why BA Hostess was who put on a cross was frowned upon by her employers and resulting in a furore.

The truth of the matter is that each one has to ask him/herself a question: Do I do God? 

What does it mean to ‘Do God?.’

Can I venture a definition of ‘doing God.’

You ‘do God’. if you are not ashamed of him in the public; He is the centre of your being. You love Him and He loves you. Jesus- God’s son is Lord of your life.

If this is not the case then you may not say I don’t do God but that is what your action is saying, irrespective of what you say with your mouth. Actions speak louder than words’, they say..

So my friend, do you do God and unashamedly?

If you do then bravo! Congratulations.. You are on the narrow road on which very few tread. You have left the broad road that many take, that leads to destruction.  You are a citizen of heaven. God is proud of you. Continue to be His ambassador and a light in the darkness; a city on a hill.  In the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer because Jesus has overcome the world. Greater is He that is in you than he this in the world. If God before you who can be against you? There are more with you than are against you. One with God is majority.  God will not leave you nor forsake you. Like Joshua you have declare by your action: ‘Choose you whom you will serve as for me and my household , we would serve the Lord.’

You will overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb shed for you and by the word of your testimony. No weapon fashioned against you will prosper. And every tongue that rises against you in judgement you shall show to be in the wrong. When the enemy comes like a flood, the spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him.. God will watch over your going out and your coming in from this time forth and even for evermore. God’s eyes are going to and for throughout the earth to show Himself strong on your behalf.

And if you don’t do God, may I ask you why?

God loves you so much that He sent the Son of His love to die for you. Yes sin has separated us from Him but God made a way to bring us back in to the fold and out from the cold. Our good works are not enough. We cannot save ourselves. We cannot pay for our sins. Only the finished work on Calvary’s cross will do.

Open your heart and let Jesus in today. Tell Him to forgive you of your sins and accept you as His. Invite Him to take His proper place and you would pass fro death into life- abundant life.

 

If you ‘do God’ and you are not ashamed of doing God, then feel free to send this to someone or some people you know who do not do God. Pray before you send it.
‘Talk to God about man before you talk to man about God.’
