Girding The Loins Of Your Mind In Marriage

Girding The Loins Of Your Mind In Marriage

I believe much of what God wants to do with us is hindered by what goes on in our mind.

This is the month of August and I believe we can enter into the new beginning God has always wanted for us.

I was worshipping God and He spoke to my heart that if ‘I can just believe’. Believe what? Believe His word, believe who He said He is and all things shall be possible to us this month.

I want us to go with God on a journey of ‘BELIEVING’. To believe, we have to do one major thing, which is to ‘gird the loins of our mind’.

Your mind is so powerful, it can hinder every good thing God has promised you.

1Pe 1:13 (KJV)
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

To gird means to strengthen, tighten, make prepare or ready as for a journey, to brace

If you allow your mind to hang loose, it will put you in trouble and you will be defeated all through life. So you have to gird the loins of your mind and tighten every loose end, so you can run the race of life successfully and have speed in life.

1Ki 18:46 (KJV)
And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel. 

Girding the loins of your mind is what you do for yourself and do it with some effort. God will not help you gird your loins, you have to do it yourself.

You gird the loins of your mind by taking charge of what goes on in your mind.

You will be transformed as you renew your mind. The life you live now is a direct result of how much you have been able to renew your mind.

Such negative thoughts that leads to bitterness, unforgiveness, malice, hatred, suspicion, every bad manners and attitude towards your spouse is an attack from hell and targeted at destroying the unity of your marriage.

Every bad manners and attitude meant to destroy your marriage is first conceived in your mind before carried out by you. Where the mind goes, the man goes!

You gird the loins of your mind by

2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

So begin to take charge of what goes on in your mind. Mind what goes on in your mind. Consciously put love, joy, peace, kindness, powerful thoughts, good and pleasant thoughts in your mind.

Brace up your mind. Gather all the loose ends that are gathering wrong thoughts from the devil.

God bless your marriage.
