When Attitudes Might Be Causing Delays In Marriage

“This is me, and I have nothing to do about that!”


 
“You better accept me as I am, because I am not going to change!?”
 
“Sorry, I have no apologies about who I am”
 
Have you made these statements like these before?
 
On one hand, they looked like self-confidence affirmations, but on the hand, they could be mean a final nailing to any possibilities of changing at all!
 
It could actually be a symptom of pride.
 
Now, this morning, I am going to show you how to know as a single if there are attitudes causing delays.
 
How do you identify such attitudes?
 
God has not called us to be rigid about changing attitudes that are counter-productive, rather He wants us to change and make adjustments until the perfect man in us appear.
 
Rom 12:2 (KJV)
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.
 
There is to be constant transformation in our lives!
 
The Message Translation even explains it better
 
Rom 12:2 (MSG)  

Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
 
The culture around you, your environment wants to drag you down all the time. 

But God wants you to mature.
 
Why does God want you to mature? So that He can use you better! And bless you better!
 
Now back to the pertinent question. How do you identify that there could be an unpleasant attitude lurking in you and possibly causing delays?
 
This is it.
 
Has there been a particular habit or disposition that everybody you have ever lived with or being around complained about?
 
If there is any, then that could be a dangerous attitude you need to shed.
 
Your parents complained about it.
 
You thought they were old.
 
Your class teacher complained about it.
 
You thought he was too harsh.
 
Your Pastor called you and advised you about it.
 
You though He didn't like you.
 
Your siblings complained about the same thing!
 
You thought they were jealous or even evil.
 
Then your friends complained about the every same thing!
 
You though they were envious!
 
Then your room-mate complained about the exact thing!
 
You thought your village people sent her to you!
 
Then you begin a relationship, and then that person walked away and complained about the very same thing!
 
You thought there was a curse!
 
When you see a trend like this, then you need to sit down, prayerfully look at your life and ask God to help you in dealing with this particular weakness.
 
If you get married like that, your spouse would complain about the same thing!
 
God would prefer you confront it and work on it with the help of His Holy Spirit than to get into marriage and then crisis ensue.
 
The beauty of it all is that God has a provision to help you!
 
He has not left you destitute or helpless.
 
He is always there to help you!
 
Embrace the finished work of the Lord Jesus on the cross on your behalf and allow the Holy Spirit to work in you in overcoming these habit, laying aside the sin and the weights.
 
Identify specific attitude to be changed. Pray and fast about it. Replace it with a healthy habit. Find scriptures about that habit and meditate on them. Trust the Holy Spirit to help you.
 
May God help you speedily and open your eyes in Jesus name!
