>> CATCH UP ON PREVIOUS DAY
It is the will of God for my Marriage to work out.
I really like the theme “Doing the Work” because I believe we live in a time where it’s so easy to just give up, we live in a time where marriage doesn’t last until death do us part anymore because we have a lazy generation, or more specifically, lazy wives. We can be ladies at times, But God is calling us wives to put in work for our husbands.
Let’s turn to Romans 12:2 (NASB)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
The will of God for my marriage is to work out. I wrote “My” because I want you all to make it personal.
Speak it: The will of God for my Marriage is to work out.
We have to make sure we don’t go into marriage with the mindset “if this doesn’t work I can just get a divorce and find another husband,” or when things are going wrong we have to make sure we don’t create a mindset of “if this doesn’t work I can just find another husband.”
We have to have a mindset that my marriage will work out, but in order to believe that your marriage will work the mindset has to be completely transformed.
One of the definitions for transformed is to make a dramatic change. Today choose to make a dramatic change in the way you think about your husband by the renewing of your mind. We have to renew our minds. When we renew our mind, our minds agree with the Spirit of God and that’s how we walk out the things of God. We have to replace our negative thoughts with positive thoughts
We have to change the way we think. In order to change the way we think we must cut out anything that feeds our minds with negativity. Anything that gives us a wrong perception about men.
We must let go of Reality TV shows that promote evil. Why? Because these type of Reality shows gives us a wrong perception about our husband and it makes us skeptical whether we notice it or not.
If we don’t want our husbands treating us like that why be entertained by someone else being treating wrong? One of the ways the enemy get in our marriages is he first attacks our minds. The way the men in the world treat women is not how we want to see our husband even if they act like the world. We heard yesterday in 1 Peter 3:1, we win our husband by our behavior not by words.
We must cut off negative people that have to say negative things about your marriage.
Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals. 1 Corinthians 15:33
We have to make sure we don’t focus on the wrongs about our spouses; instead think positive things about them. Embrace only the Good. If we focus on the Good we would notice our spouses aren’t as bad as we make them out to be.
To get rid of negativity we have to replace it with positivity
We have to occupy our time with
Reading the word of God learning how a Goodly man should be Speak that over our husbands.
We have to learn how to Love our husband like Christ Love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, meaning (does not keep attract of wrong doing) when we don’t keep attack of wrong we are being forgive.
Forgiving is hard sometimes, but we are called to forgive and walk these things out listed in these versest…that’s true love. Love is a choice it’s not based on feelings.
We have to be a praying wife. Less talking and more praying!
God bless you ladies I pray this blessed each of you.
