Waiting On the LORD and Getting Results For Your Marriage

Jesus Christ told a story about “ten young virgins who took oil lamps and went out to greet the bridegroom. Five were silly and five were smart. The silly virgins took lamps, but no extra oil. The smart virgins took jars of oil to feed their lamps. The bridegroom didn’t show up when they expected him, and they all fell asleep.

“In the middle of the night someone yelled out, ‘He’s here! The bride-groom’s here! Go out and greet him!’ “The ten virgins got up and got their lamps ready. The silly virgins said to the smart ones, ‘Our lamps are going out; lend us some of your oil.’ “They answered, ‘There might not be enough to go around; go buy your own.’ “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.

“Much later, the other virgins, the silly ones, showed up and knocked on the door, saying, ‘Master, we’re here. Let us in.’ “He answered, ‘Do I know you? I don’t think I know you.’ “So stay alert. You have no idea when he might arrive”  Matthew 25:1-13

Are You Waiting on The Lord or Wasting on Your Own?

Note that the 10 virgins were all “waiting” on the bridegroom but only 5 were prepared for the coming of the bridegroom. Getting married is not always the challenge. Staying married is always the challenge. Restoring your marriage is not hard for God to do. The question is, are you ready for your marriage? For those who are praying for restoring of their marriage, here is my question. You had your spouse 24/7 and 365 days before he left or she left. What changed now that will stop him/her from leaving? For the Singles, you have heard that 50% of all marriage end in divorce. What are you doing to make sure yours is different?
