(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
🗓 Thursday, 20th April, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:”
🔹 🔹 🔹
One of the major reasons people fail today or miss important opportunities is the lack of adequate preparation.
The same is true in the case of the virgins called foolish in our text today. They had been chosen to welcome a very important guest, the bridegroom, but in their haste and forgetfulness, they took just the oil they needed for the moment, not considering the extra they might eventually need. They ended on the wrong side of the door when the feast eventually began- they were locked out.
It is not enough to get excited over a new opportunity before you, God wants you to avoid the pain and embarrassment of being stranded halfway in whatsoever you have set out to accomplish by being careful to prepare adequately for those opportunities.
God is calling you today to make adequate preparation for the future you claim to expect. The man who claims to expect God’s favour prepares for opportunities. Therefore, begin to plan and prepare for the next phase of your life. Keep abreast with likely changes in your field and get busy preparing for them. Prepare for opportunities, do not be caught unawares.
