It’s important to be ready when great moments and opportunities come your way, and in particular, to prepare your heart for the Kingdom of God. Now when I say the Kingdom of God, I don’t mean just heaven and hell and the return of Christ, I also mean the things that are happening in your daily life. It’s crucial that you have oil in your lamp; to be full of the Holy Spirit so you can have spiritual ears and eyes to see when God is doing great things in your midst.
Opportunity is a rare thing, but when it comes and you take advantage of it, it can have incredible results. One decision can impact the course of your life for better or worse, so it’s essential to live in step with the Spirit, with a lamp full of oil, ready to move when you hear God’s voice.
