The Mid-Night Crier

Matthew 25:6

“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.” [KJV]

Mat. 25:1-13

The parable of the ten virgins is one of the parables I learnt from childhood. I grew up with the desire to be like the wise virgins who were eventually ready when the bridegroom showed up. But recently while listening to a preacher talk about this story, I discovered that both the wise and foolish virgins slumbered and slept while the bridegroom tarried. You see, with all their wisdom, they could not stay awake. Someone had said that any wisdom that is not in use is wish-dom; like a man dwelling in the domain of wishes.

You see friends, there was a cry made at midnight, who made that cry? If that midnight crier was not awake they would all miss out. For me, I want to be wise, because wisdom is the principal thing, but beyond that, I want to be among the company of the mid-night criers. Paul exhorts us in Romans 13:11-14 to awake out of our sleep. I believe we are in a season when there is a need for midnight criers because lots of believers are still sleeping.

Be that midnight crier in your family, church and community. Be spiritually alert. Live with the mentality of a man who must always be awake. Remain awake in every area of your life. And most importantly, remain awake in the place of prayer.

Go into today determined to stay awake no matter how stressful the journey may seem.

Make this declaration your prayer: the wisdom of God is at work in me, I know what to do, what to say, who to meet, all at the right time. I shall remain awake and alert in every area of my life, amen. Not yet saved? Tap: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
