Reading Time: 3 minutes

Continued from yesterday

When they woke up, all of them trimmed their lamps, but sadly, the lamps of five of them were gone out!

You see, there comes a time when activities without priority on God’s presence will fail. There comes a time where energy and service bravado will fail! When the oil in the lamp goes out, it is the oil in your vessel that will save you!

When you are serving God passionately with your time, energy, and resources but are still embroiled in habitual sexual sins and other transgressions, you are just being foolish! Ouch! That hurts! But it is the truth! It is the truth that will make you free. I am not here to tell you what you want to read or what appeals to your ears, but to declare the undiluted word of God!

When you are seen as a spiritual person and others are even looking up to you yet you know you are empty when it comes to a personal relationship with God, you are being foolish! Ouch!

If you are a pastor that only read your Bible to preach, that is oil in the lamp and nothing more than foolishness! Ouch! You don’t read Bible to preach alone, you study it to live!

If you are a lady in the protocol or ushering in church, always prompt and active, and you don’t know what it means to practice the presence of God, neither do you read your Bible regularly, you are not being wise! Ouch!

If you are the most active in church and yet you live with a boyfriend or girlfriend, that is utter foolishness.

Mat 25:12 KJV
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

When they wanted the door opened to them, Jesus simply said he doesn’t know them! Is it possible that one can think He knows God and God does not know that person? Yes, I think it is possible.

Let us all get back to getting oil in our vessels regularly. That is how you won’t make mistake in your relationship.

That is how you will know the right person.

That is how not to miss your “bridegroom” That is how not to miss your spouse. That is how the ‘virgin’ in you will not miss it! The time when you are supposed to be ready and meet your ‘bridegroom,’ or your ‘spouse to be’ is not the time to go look for extra oil! It should have been in your vessel all the while!

Mat 25:10 KJV
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

When you’ve still not learnt how to prioritize your time, and you still don’t value God’s presence, you are still caught up with deceit and sexual sins, the implication is that you are not yet ready and the door of marriage can be shut! It is only those that are ready that will go with him into the marriage! The reason why there is a delay for some people when it comes to marriage is simply lack of oil in the vessel. It can literarily shut the door of marriage!

Oil in the vessel! That is how to keep your relationship.

Make up your mind this morning to be wise!

Lord, I receive the wisdom to rule in the affairs of this world.

Pray that God will give you wisdom to stay in His presence

Mat 25:5 KJV While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Cut off your association with any person, place, or thing that is influencing you negatively.

Matt 25
