Girding Your Mind’s Loins in Marriage

I’m sure you’ve seen the phrase where the mind goes and the man follows before. You’ve probably heard it and similar expressions a lot.

These are excellent phrases. We’re going to look at how crucial it is to gird your mental loins. How to accept responsibility and regain control of your mind.

Our scripture will be taken from

I kg 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 Your Mind’s Loins in Marriage

God was preparing to grant Elijah incredible speed, but he had to gird his loins.

It was something the Holy Spirit would not do on his behalf. You must accept responsibility for your own thoughts.

Negative thoughts can obstruct God’s operation in your life and marriage.

Girding your loins, as Elijah did, meant tying up all the loose ends of his garment so he could run freely with nothing impeding his movement.

We, too, should gird our loins like Elijah. Don’t just let any notions into your mind. You may not be able to stop the thoughts from entering your head, but you should not welcome them. You have a choice; make good use of it. 

Make decisions that will help you progress.

Examine every thought. The Bible instructed us on what thoughts we should tolerate in our minds.

Girding Your Mind’s Loins in Marriage

Phil 4:8 KJV
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.Ā 

Any idea that contradicts anything on this list should be destroyed, dragged down, or cast down.

2Cor 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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.

You cannot have impure thoughts about your spouse and expect God’s blessing on your marriage.

You can’t be full of sexual thoughts and expect to come up with novel ideas.

Allow God’s thoughts to take over your mind.

In Jesus’ name, I pray that the Holy Spirit will give us strength, and that we will use the strength already accessible in the Holy Spirit to gird our minds.

God bless our union.
