How many times have we missed an opportunity to be blessed by the Lord?
How many times have we been just about to get our miracle only to grow weary and give in to our circumstances and start believing in what we see instead of having faith in what God tells us? How many times has the Lord put an opportunity for us to rise up and be all we can be only to let someone's negative words tell us differently?
Let us not be like the virgins with the lamps of oil, let us keep our oil replenished and our lamps burning brightly for the LORD. AMEN! And if you have not yet made that decision to accept the LORD, do it now. Don't miss your opportunity. AMEN!
Matthew 25 v 1-13....Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard; "Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!" Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, 'give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise answered saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you, but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.' And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward, the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us! But He answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you." "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming."........
1.) Don't depend on someone else to get you to where you are going
2.) Don't be lazy and put off for tomorrow what you can take care of today
3.) Don't wait until it is too late to decide, only to be turned away in the final day
In other words, don't miss your opportunity. AMEN!
Stay in the WORD!
