FIRE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 9:15-16

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
SATANIC MENTORS WILL NOT LOCATE YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
The word “mentor” does not appear in the Bible, but there are so many instances of more mature and more experienced characters in the Bible, who acted as mentors to those who were younger or newer in faith. Moses mentored Joshua (Deuteronomy 31:23), Elijah and Elisha (1 Kings 19), Naomi mentored Ruth. Jesus mentored His apostles, and Paul mentored Timothy (2 Timothy 4:1-8).
What is mentoring? It is being a coach to a willing and ready individual. A mentor is a wise and trusted counsellor or teacher who has recorded a significant level of achievements in his or her field. In our Memory Verse, Apostle Paul spelt out mentoring as his leadership model — very simple: “Follow my examples as I follow the example of Christ.”
Who is your mentor? Some persons claim to be Christians but their mentors happen to be big time politicians who speak in fables, wear exquisite attires, live big and ride ostentatious cars. Gehazi wanted to have the type of clothing like that of the Syrian war leader. He was under the tutelage of a great mentor, from whom he would have inherited great anointing, but he chose to have a worldly mentor in his heart. He ended up a leper throughout his life and generations after him were not spared. They became sad reminders of this ugly episode in Bible history. Your vision determines who mentors your life. Your lifestyle and character would be impacted by your mentor’s vision and character.
A mentor guides by being a good example. Apostle Paul counselled Christians in Philippians 4:9 thus: “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” Do you behave like your father in the Lord whose life is Christlike or a boss in the office who depends on his scheming ability? This is the counsel of the Lord written in Hebrews 13:7, “Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.” You must not follow a satanic leader. Learn to be wise to choose a kingdom mentor and be a good example like Apostle Paul in your mentoring and life. May God help you, in Jesus’ name.
- Glorify the name of God in your life for giving you His only begotten Son to be your mentor.
- I shall not lose focus on Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Fake mentors in my life, disappear, in the name of Jesus.
- Power that wants me to go astray, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every door opened to spiritual robbers in my life, be shut by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Any conscious or unconscious link between me and any demon, be cut off by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Power assigned to make me an evil mentee like Gehazi, die, in the name of Jesus.

Praise and Worship
Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank You because You are my Saviour, Protector and Defender.
Father, I thank You for the salvation of my soul. My Lord and my God, I appreciate You for You are a covenant keeping God and you have interest in the affairs of my life. My rock and my Shield, I will bless you at all times and your praises shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34).
I am not what my circumstances says I am. I am not what mockers or scorners says I am. I am not what the society says I am. I am not a picture of what the national economy and institutionalized wickedness has restructured people to be. I am not what I think I am, but I am what the word of God says I am. I am an express image of Jehovah God on earth, I am fashioned after the likeness of the Creator of the heaven and earth.
I am regenerated by the blood of Jesus. The word of God says I am a royal priesthood I am a holy nation. I am a peculiar person and I am special in the sight of God. The grace of God is upon my life. As the light of His glory, I am full of divine favour, and I am a partaker of all heaven’s spiritual blessings.
The Bible says because I believe and receive Jesus Christ, power has been given to me to become a son of God and I am empowered to trample upon serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy. Therefore, let no man trouble me, for I bear in my body the mark of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I make these confessions in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son and in the name of the Holy Spirit. Amen!!!
NOTE: Make the Personal confession before you start the prayer each day for the section
