Extra Oil

Heard the story of the wise and foolish virgins? In Summary, 10 girls were invited for a wedding feast, 5 were wise , 5 were foolish. Wise because they took extra oil for their lamps and the foolish one took no extra oil. The bridegroom delayed and the girls fell asleep.when he finally came, the oil in the lamps were finished . The foolish ones asked the wise ones for some of their oil but they didn't have enough to share. They then had to go into town to buy some the time they returned the wise girls were already in the feast and the doors were Shut. 
If you were to choose which group of girls would you join?
The wise virgins are those who are ready . Girls guides have this motto:be prepared .
This means always ready for whatever challenge they had.
As Christians we should always be ready... We should do what we have been called to do and do it with 2 things in mind :
We will be judged according to how we responded to the calling on our life .
We won't be on this earth forever.
Prepare by prayer , reading and meditating on the word which are Spirit and life, by obeying the word which shows our love for our Lord.
Should Jesus come today will he find you in readiness?

Psalm 119

This is one of those chapters i read and i know i am lacking in my walk with God. + it is lenghty 😏 still worth the read
Here i realise the relevance of God's word to my christian walk.. Lets check out a few verses
1. Joyful are people of integrity
   who follow the instruction of the Lord
  Integrity is actually an instruction of God and it brings joy. Walk in integrity.
5. Oh , that my actions will consistently reflect your decrees.
We may know the word but do we live it?
6.Then I will not be ashamed when i compare my life with your commands.
😢 i am scared to pick my Bible and measure my life with it.. Will i stand?
10. I have tried to find you
Don't let me wander from your commands
My earnest prayer when i feel likd i should stop seeking God cos i go off.
11. I have hidden your word in my heart that i might not sin against you.
How can i hide His word in my heart
14. I have rejoiced in your laws as much as in riches
Mind blown!! I think of money  but do i think of God .
Where is my Joy?  

May we truly find God this October
