21 strategies to overcome marital delay
We have discussed several practical steps that will enable anyone to overcome marital delay and without any doubt, all we have discussed will go a long way to hasten fulfilment of God’s will in our lives. The issue of marital delay is not just about satanic manipulations. Sometimes, they may be as a result of satanic afflictions, but often they are self-inflicted. Sometimes, people suffer delay as a result of their stinking thinking, which is why we are discussing this subject today and to let you know that you have to be a positive thinker, if you must overcome marital delay.
Be A Positive Thinker
To avoid delay in your life, you must be super positive. Most of our experiences in life are products of our thoughts. Stinking or call it ungodly and unscriptural thinking has robbed so many people of their glorious destiny in Christ. You are what you think. What becomes of you is a function of how you think or your mindset. You cannot think one thing and become something else. You cannot be thinking you are ugly and worthless and find someone to marry you. When you feel worthless, you make everyone around you worthless. Like the Latin maxim says, “nemo dat quod non habet.” You cannot give what you don’t have. You make people responsible for your predicaments. So stop thinking that you are worthless or ugly. Everyone God created is beautiful because the Bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Everyone is created to be beautiful. It is even a mere opinion to think that someone is more beautiful. What you cannot give yourself no one can give it you. You may have the same hairstyle and feel bad or good about yourself, if you allow what others say about the hairstyle to affect you. You feel good when they said something good about your hairdo and you feel bad when they say something bad about it. But you can change that by just accepting that the hairdo is okay. You must never allow anybody’s opinion to determine how you feel about yourself.
So many young people have fallen victim at one time or another in their lives because somebody hoodwinked them with a compliment because they were not sure of whom they were in the first place. That means they had problem with self-esteem and they based their self-worth on others’ opinion. You must not base your thinking on what people say, but on what the word of God says about you. God is the one that manufactured you and He said that you were very good when you were created. We must deliberately renew our minds with the word of God because we become what we think. No wonder Apostle Paul admonished the believers in Rome many years ago:
“And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God” (Rom. 12:2). We must constantly renew our minds with the word of God.
So many of us have terrible experiences in life. Our past may be nothing to write home about; it is possible to have imbibed negative words and pictures about life from others, it becomes difficult for us to think right, until we renew our mind with the word of God. The devil uses our past to afflict and distort our thinking, so that our lives can be disrupted. But we need to renew our minds with the word of God because you become what you think. Your life will always go in the direction of your thoughts. The scripture says:
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Pro. 23:7).
God has made us in such a way that we can programme or reprogramme our lives by the way we use our mind. We may not be able to control what has happened to us or what is happening to us right now, but we have a lot to do in controlling how we handle those things that happen to us by the way we think. No matter how bad or bitter your experience has been in life, you can reorder everything by reprogramming your thoughts. You must begin to think the way God thinks and see yourself the way He sees you. God sees you as a winner, a champion and a rare gem. God sees you as someone who is created beautiful or handsome, endowed from heaven to make remarkable achievements and accomplishments in life.
