Like a wise farmer to a new gardener, a mentor has walked before the Lord and learnt much from life. As the mentor shares their knowledge, you can quicken your production and interrupt destructive habits that halt growth in your life, by paying close attention to their instructions and duplication of their example.
Just as Paul told Timothy, “Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 1:13), so a mentor lays down patterns of growth to follow, with words of life to sustain ongoing production.
In my journey, every single strength of my life was developed. In my childhood, I was not a leader. I had no friends. I wasn’t popular, nor the favourite of my teachers. Every part of me had to be developed, and the way I did that, was by first locating my weakness.
Contrary to popular opinion, we are not responsible for everybody. Depending on if this is a friend or family member, our response to someone’s struggle may be quite different. For one brings spiritual battles not needed, while another brings growth.
Wisdom is not just knowing what to say; it is also knowing when to say it.
A child of God has to always study when to speak.
It is critical for a child of God to speak only when you will be heard. Don’t waste your words.
How can we discern in our daily life how to act, what to say or not to say, instead of reflecting after the fact? Our greatest strength comes from what we comprehend the best about the Lord….
2022, as prophesied, has roared in with trouble. From nations in confinement, to rumours of wars, to floods and storms, to the next global medical crisis, everywhere on this earth, times are turbulent. What to do when trouble comes our way?
If your heart is mediating on global issues, the loss of job, the fight with your children or your bank account, the enemy can use your fears as the currency of faith in the his kingdom of darkness to execute your failures. If your heart is meditating on the Lord, the Goodness of God, His power and might, His deep love for His Children, your identity in Christ or the testimonies He has done in your life, you will overcome any battle, win any war the enemy tries, because your spirit, so full of truth and the fire of the Holy Spirit, will be fuelled by the Lord!
Child of God, you are a citizen of Heaven even while you live on earth. Your passport is stamped: HEAVEN. So why are you surprised when hell, Heaven's enemy, targets you on earth? In 2022, may you find Peace in Christ to overcome and rule every single day! Storms...
Being humble, contrite and trembling at His Word are critical keys to sustain our connection with the Lover of our Soul in 2022. If we are to rest and reign with Him, our pursuit must be strategic, intentional and diligent, as we advance the Gospel in His Holy Name.
