Often times I am asked, “How do you take your focus off of your spouse when we are supposed to love them unconditionally?” That is the same question I had when going through my STAND. My husband and children kept telling me, “Focus On Yourself”. What did they know? A LOT!! I had been training them for so long, I had forgotten how to take my own advice.
The only way I can explain this, is to suggest for you take all of your thoughts, as they come and redirect them back to the Father.
2 Corin. 10:5 tells us…
(AMP) We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,
(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;
Turn every thought around. It is sometimes more trying than others, but it works just like a muscle. As you work it, you will be strengthened. By focusing on Daddy more than your spouse, he will build you up in Him, allowing that new TRUST to arise. You will start to see the results you are seeking, which will in turn be recognized by others.
The Lord will take all of your broken pieces and mold you back into the most beautiful mosaic you could ever imagine. This is a process that will take time, I won’t lie, but it will BE SO WORTH IT. He wants to fix the broken pieces first in you, the ones you aren’t even unaware of. While he is working on you (even if you don’t see it) trust and believe he is working on your spouse.
WE SHOW UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR OUR SPOUSE when we take care of our personal spiritual health… OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ABBA FATHER, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
