The Picture of My Spiritual Mentor; Bishop Oyedepo Greeting us after a marathon praise session with him to thank God for a successful evangelism project.
My first Mentors were my career mentors- a youth corp teacher that led me to Christ and the proprietor of my school; they provided dual mentorship. Shortly after, I connected with my spiritual mentor in Bishop David Oyedepo. I have noticed a trend that is affecting a lot of christians. Substituting Spiritual mentors for Career or Business mentors are two different things. Professor Yemi Osinbanjo who is the vice president of Nigeria has a spiritual mentor in DADDY E.A Adeboye but a career mentor in Bola Tinubu. Without a career mentor in Bola Tinubu, he wouldn’t have been the VP today.
Samuel was the spiritual mentor for David but Saul was his career mentor and that’s why David couldn’t kill him even with the several opportunities he had. Saul gave him his biggest shot to play instrument for him and later to confront Goliath and to join the Israel Army. Many Christians can’t take their place because all they do is sit in church all week and expect returns. Get back to your Job. The pastors you follow are busy on their job and that’s why you consider them role models worth following; For you to succeed in career and Business, you need to locate someone who has succeeded in career and Business to mentor you. When people spend all their time listening to spiritual mentors only and yet they don’t have a plan to start a ministry, it is the definition of misplaced priority. Christians like that, make the word of God look ineffective because they are always in church but lack the proof of serving GOD.
I pray for wisdom today. I decree that GOD will send you Worthy Mentors that will change your business and Career. I also pray that when you meet them, you will receive grace to keep them. A Business Mentor doesn’t need to be of same FAITH as you or character as you. They don’t need you, hence, they will not give you any opportunity by just asking. Tinubu and Daddy GO are two different people, yet a pastor under DADDY GO picked Tinubu as his political mentor.
Have a great day ahead!
