April 7, 2019 Spirit Meat Daily Devotional : Topic - IMITATION THROUGH MENTORSHIP (1) - 1 KINGS 2:1-10


Another area in which the Bible gives us ample examples is mentorship. The entire purpose of being mentored is to imitate the mentor. It’s absolutely critical to find a mentor as a Christian. You will have numerous instructors but there comes a time to distinguish between them from those who will mentor you in destiny.
 
God links men to men in destiny for mentoring. Mentoring will save you from all the errors that untrained and untutored people are vulnerable to in their journey. During mentorship, you are shown the mistakes and triumphs of those who have gone ahead of you, giving you the advantage in solving the puzzles of life. The lack of a God-given mentor leads to a non-guaranteed future in life and destiny. Let’s consider some examples from the bible.
 
1)Moses and Joshua. In Judges 2:6-11, we see that Israel went the wrong way after Joshua died. The reason this happened was quite simple: Joshua didn’t mentor any successor to keep Israel on the right path after his time. This is a stark contrast to his relationship with Moses, his predecessor who mentored him in the ways of the Lord. 
2)David and Solomon. David was very thorough in ensuring that the people of Israel were in safe hands after he passed. He mentored Solomon by telling him what he must do in order to have a fulfilling reign as king of Israel. Even though Solomon was divinely chosen by God to be king after David, David took great pains to show him those little foxes that could destroy his destiny on the throne. 
 
 
PRAYERLord, link me up with my destiny mentors and open my heart to learn from and imitate them. Amen! 
 
BIBLE IN A YEAR: Deuteronomy 28:1-68, Luke 11:14-36, Psalm 77:1-20, Proverbs 12:18
