Wise or Foolish

February 8, 2017

 

The doors of the church are open.The body is coming together, expecting a move of God like never before.

 

They are hungry.

 

They are longing.

 

They are anticipating.

 

They refuse to allow the bridegroom to pass by without being seen. 

 

Where are you?

 

Do you have to be within church walls to experience glory?

 

No.

 

Do you have to seek for more than just salvation and the occasional gathering with other

believers?

 

No.

 

 

But foolishness says I have enough right here, right now and anymore would just be over doing it. 

 

Wisdom says this cannot be all He has for me. I refuse to settle for this, I want more.

 

All the virgins who waited on the bridegroom had lamps.

 

They all had oil.

 

They all slumbered.

 

They all slept.

 

Not a one of them was perfect.

 

The difference in the foolish virgins and the wise virgins was that the wise had an attitude about the oil that caused them to be so in awe of the oil that they couldn’t get enough. 

 

When the foolish ran out of oil, they wanted the wise virgins to share their oil.

 

That isn’t how it works.

 

Gathering oil takes initiative.

 

It takes time.

 

It takes longing.

 

It takes relationship.

 

It isn’t something you can share.

 

It isn’t something you can give to those closest to you.

 

Oil is for you from your Father.

 

Everyone can have oil, but there are some people God has chosen to be golden pipes of oil to flow

into His people.

 

When those people are around, it would do us well to gather all our vessels and receive what they are bringing from our God.

 

As we come to this encounter, we each have a choice.

 

Will we be like the foolish virgins and think we have enough with what we have?

 

Or will we be like the wise and gather as much as we can until we are overflowing with His glory and everyone around us can see Him?

 

Wisdom says give me all you have for me, God.
