How To Keep Foolishness Away From Your Home – Part 2

How To Keep Foolishness Away From Your Home – Part 2

Reading Time: 3 minutes

COUPLES –

The word vessel means receptacle. It is talking about your spirit man. When you serve God, that is oil in your lamp. When you climb the pulpit to preach, that is oil in your lamp. When you preach in the bus, that is oil in your lamp. When you work tirelessly, that is oil in your lamp. All those are necessary and they surely have their place, but when you do all of that to the detriment of personal devotional time with God, you are being careless with oil in your vessel.

That you sing in the choir will not compensate for the time you ought to be in God’s presence in the morning. That you resume at the workplace very early every day of the week will not make God understand your prayerlessness. Nothing will ever replace the time you spend in God’s presence daily!

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. – Mat 25:7 KJV

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 when 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 and yet you know you are empty when it comes with a personal relationship with God, you are being foolish! Ouch!

If you are a pastor that only reads 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 are living in adultery, that is utter foolishness.

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

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 mistakes in your marriage.

Oil in the vessel! That is how to keep your marriage together. That is how to run your home!

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the church!

Make up your mind this morning to be wise!

Selah!

How To Keep Foolishness Away From Your Home

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

Wisdom is powerful. In life, you are either operating in foolishness or wisdom. That is why the scripture talks about the wise virgins and the foolish virgins. It is such a thin line that one can easily cross the line from wisdom to foolishness when care is not taken.

In the case of the five wise virgins and five foolish virgins, they were all born again and they all were expecting the bridegroom. They all go to church. They all have their lamps with them and the scripture says the word of God is a lamp unto our feet.

They all had oil in their lamps. We know that oil is a type of the Holy Spirit. They all know something about the Holy Spirit. They were all spiritual to an extent. We know that the parable is talking about believers because the scripture says

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. – Mat 25:1 KJV

What made the five virgins foolish? The scripture tells us.

And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. – Mat 25:2-4 KJV

You can be attending service, be a worker, be all over the place, and yet be operating in foolishness! The foolish took their lamp but no oil. The wise took OIL IN THEIR VESSELS plus the oil in their lamps.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
Lord, I receive the wisdom to run my home.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Pray that God will give you the wisdom to stay in His presence

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

The Kind of Lover You Should Not Marry – Part 3

The Kind of Lover You Should Not Marry – Part 3

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Continued from yesterday…

Don’t let his shiny lamp, his fine car, and his iPhone without God deceive you. Those things bring temporary happiness that will fizzle out.

Real joy, constant victory only comes from God-ordained relationships and marriages who are constantly living by the word and the Spirit.

If he has no oil, he would think the lamp is the problem, and he would go and get more lamps, he would dabble into adultery!

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:   [4]  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

Mat 25:3-4 (KJV)

Nothing is more excruciating to be married to a wicked spouse, cheating on you, lying, deceiving, full of frowardness, and never giving you peace of mind.

Nothing is more debilitating to be married to a strange woman, a knife instead of a wife, bringing daily hell instead of daily help!

Nothing is more fulfilling to be married to a man or woman who is faithful to God, and has no capacity for evil through cheating, lying, playing religion, brandishing lamps without oil.

Where is your oil? Where is your depth? Where is your fear for God? Where is your integrity? Do you pay tithe? Do you honour God? Then you can ask me out and only then will my heart fall for you!

I challenge you to look beyond the lamp and go for the oil, the oil will lubricate your destiny and prevent your marital engine from knocking!

I pray for you this day, with every fibre of my being and with the strength of my call, you will not miss it!

Can you pray in the Spirit a little?

I commit you into the hands of the one that will exalt your horns like the horn of a unicorn and who will anoint your head with fresh oil.

Every form of confusion is removed from your life in Jesus name!

You will not collide with losers. You will not be entangled with foolishness. God will go ahead of you and make the crooked places straight. Affliction will not have intercourse with you! Delay is removed from your race! Heaven will announce you!

Be blessed today!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I make the right choice in God.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to choose wisely.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Choose wisely

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Isaiah 31
