Esther 2:7 “And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter.”
My spiritual father said, “You can be fatherless by force due to the death, absence or irresponsibility of a biological father but to remain “fatherless” in life is a choice”.
Who is a father?
A father in this context is one who can help you discover, develop and nurture the seed of greatness in you into manifestation. He is your God ordained archer that can shoot you into your high place in life.
He could be biological but most times he is not. He is your life coach and trainer. He is your human ladder. A father takes you further in life. He provides feathers for you to fly.
We discovered from our focal scripture that Esther quickly cooperated with her spiritual father and in the course of time, her destiny unfolded to the bewilderment of everyone in her generation. Esther was beautiful and drop-dead gorgeous but nobody saw it until she got into the hands of Mordecai.
This man became her destiny father who helped to shape Esther and made the whole world appreciate the beauty locked up deep down within her.
God is the ultimate and superior Father but he has organized the fathering process for us to rise quickly in life. The devil also understand this and that is why he fights to keep people away from being mentored. Hear what God said:
Isaiah 51:1 “Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged”
Isaiah 51:2 “Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.”
God said Abraham has been set up as a father for all to look unto. It simply means when you look unto a mentor who has gone ahead of you, you will equally achieve the same results.
