Using the Word to Encourage Others

Who is your mentor?

  
David had just dodged death. His father-in-law, King Saul had just thrown a javelin at him.

David knew he needed to get to a safe place. He went to Samuel: his mentor, guide, the Godly man that he knew. 

Samuel encouraged David. David returned to his home and came up with a plan to move forward. 

Do you have a person that you can call upon for strength and guidance? Someone to help you navigate difficult situations? For David it was Samuel. Who is it for you? It’s best to figure this out now so that you’ll be prepared should you need advice rather than to find yourself in a heated situation taking the advice of anyone willing to give it. If you can’t come up with someone pray that the Lord will send you a person.

Proverbs 27:17

II Chronicles 24:1-18

King Joash was young, parentless and in a very important role. He was to rule the kingdom of Judah.

Jehoiada, the priest and uncle of King Joash stepped in to become mentor, counsellor and coworker to the young man.

As a result of this relationship Joash was nurtured and reigned successful with his uncle by his side.

Jehoiada’s guidance, example and wisdom influenced Joash heavily. He was held accountable by his uncle. Sadly, when Jehoiada died Joash quit following God. He turned to idols instead.

Are you in the position to strengthen someone in the ways of our Lord? If so, don’t take the opportunity lightly. The results could be huge.
