The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:9 NKJV
Do you remember the last time you cried to the Lord? When you face difficulties in life who is the first person do you consult with? Is it the Lord of heaven and earth, or that wonderful relative of yours? Do you depend on mere humans to solve your problems or you depend on God?
We see faithful men and women in the Bible went to God whenever they faced difficulties in life. They asked God for counsel first before they went to anybody else; always God advice proved to be more than enough that's why they lived such wonderful lives.
Sometimes new members in the body of Christ ask themselves how they will be able to know the will of God in their situations. How will they be able to ask God to intervene in their situations while they don't know much about that God? These questions can be answered by members who have been walking with the Lord enough to understand the secrets of the kingdom. Members who have proved with their lives over the years that they love the Lord with all what they have.
This morning, I want to encourage you to ask the Lord to give you spiritual mentors. I know for sure many of us have questions concerning many things in the Church. We have questions concerning different scriptures we don't understand and doctrines in the Church. We remain to be ignorant because we are so proud to admit that we need people who have given the grace to understand those things to explain for us.
We go through a lot of things alone because we don't want to get help from other members in the body of Christ. If you feel like I'm speaking to you through these words; then know that God wants you to find a spiritual mentor to help you. You don't need to find someone who you think will fit to be your mentor according to your standards; but ask God to show you or direct you to a person who thinks he/she will help you grow and mature in Him.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I'm asking that You may give me people who will help me to walk in your ways. Help me to be obedient to them in the Lord knowing You will use them to help me grow and mature in You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
