Kindly use your turn very well by Prophet Ojo

Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain Jew, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite; Who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captivity which had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away. 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.

Esther 2:5-7.

A major factor responsible for retarded growth in Africa as well as limited aggression in Gospel expansion and extension is the misuse of platforms and placements.

The slave mindset sees position and placement as a platform to prove to others how they have surpassed them and therefore should be accorded undue honor.

The ‘I pass my Neigbour’ mindset is a myopic, self seeking and self glorifying mindset. It has no regards for future outcomes.

Mordecai on the other hand, raised Esther, gave her every information, training and connection necessary to showcase what she carried. Imagine Mordecai to be an average African, he would have thought Esther unworthy of such exposure and connection since she wasn’t his daughter.

Hmmm! Esther’s appearance in the palace eventually saved Mordecai’s head as well as that of a whole nation.


1. Once it was Mordecai’s turn to raise Esther, later it became Esther’s turn to save Mordecai’s life.

2. Once it was Mordecai’s turn to recommend Esther for the contest, later it became Esther’s turn to recommend Mordecai to the king. On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her. And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman. Esther 8:1-2.


The church in Africa can only experience true lasting revival when everyone in leadership position becomes selfless.

Use your turn well to lift others. Be a good bridge for someone to cross through troubled waters.

Be a good ladder for a seemingly helpless person today to climb over his limiting wall.

Enforce positive institutional changes when you have the opportunity.

Never forget, Turns do turn, it will not always be your turn.

What you do with people when it’s your turn determines what other turns will do for you, your children, organization or nation.

Have a blessed week and be a blessing to someone!
