Scripture for Today

Matthew 25:11 "They did, but while they were out buying oil, the bridegroom arrived. When everyone who was there to greet him had gone into the wedding feast, the door was locked.(Msg) 

To understand this Scripture well, you need to start reading from the beginning of the passage to understand it better. The illustration of the 10 virgins was used because it signified their level of purity towards God. They had the same opportunity to work and wait for God. They kept their lights burning for as long as they waited. Let's look at it this way, they were all working in the Vineyard they were waiting with all their heart then suddenly they were out of oil, the walked out of their place of service to get some and found themselves locked out forever. 

Our goal in life is to work in God's own given purpose for us. One of the devils device is that we find a reason to be out of our place so we will be out of God's presence. Let's try as much as we can to resist the temptation to walk away from God's call. No matter how long we wait for his coming he will come. No matter how long you have waited for him to answer he will answer. Ensure that you do not lack the oil of prayer, the oil of praise or even the oil of gladness. God's time is never your time. Trust him in your seasons of life. 

Prayer: Father, may I never lack oil in my life.
