The Co-Founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries, Lady Evang. Gloria Bamiloye has advised her followers to be careful of their moves when faced with hardship in the ministry. Using Demas as a case study, who got distracted and left the ministry in search of greener pasture, Gloria Bamiloye warns that some situations may propose genuine and reasonable reasons to act out of God’s plan, but we should not be distracted, rather remain focused and fixed our gaze on the one that has called us into the ministry.
Mummy Gloria also stated that advices and suggestions that accompany the period of hardship and suffering in the ministry should be well sieved and discarded absolutely if it’s not from God.

BE FOCUSED: 2 Timothy 4:5,7,10 KJV
 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
10] For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica…
Paul was addressing Timothy the need to remain focus on his ministry because it is very easy to be distracted by genuine and reasonable reasons which can gradually distract someone from his original calling .
He told him to watch in all things. That is to be careful and patiently watch before allow anything or take any step in the ministry
This is because you cannot avoid suffering or affliction if you want to make full proof of your ministry.
People tends to be distracted when they are faced with negative situation in the ministry which may eventually drift them away from the ministry if they are not careful.
Watch thou in all things because some things may be good for others but it may not be the will of God for you . Do not jump out of the will of God . Stay in God’s presence until you are sure of what he is saying concerning your life and ministry or you will miss the perfect will of God for your ministry and limit your greatness . Learn to listen to God even when the way seems to be difficult
Demas left Paul when he could no longer cope with the affliction . Paul said Dema loved this present world and he moved away from the ministry to another city to have a better life. Do not move because of any reason if God had not move you.
Be careful of advise or suggestions you listen to especially when you are face with hardship or suffering in your ministry. Be careful of the friends or the association you keep. Be focused on your vision as you do the work of an evangelist
Years ago a man of God came to our base to greet us . When he saw our condition and situation in the ministry, he began to give great testimonies from his ministerial exploits and how he was wise to get himself financially stable and balanced in the ministry.
He then then advised my husband and I, on what to do to move up to a better life in ministry But the Holy Spirit told us he was not speaking for him. Satan eventually lured the man into the world and he is no longer in the ministry today.
Prayer: Father help me not to be distracted from from following you Lord. Help me to endure and wait on you for my time of manifestation
