Change your Garments: Ruth

Ruth was a widow who left her people and moved with her widowed mother-in-law Naomi to Israel. The two widows lived together and Ruth worked to sustain them by gleaning in a field belonging to Boaz.

When Naomi decided to help Ruth change her situation and get married to Boaz, she advised her to "Wash yourself, anoint yourself, put on your best garment and go to the threshing floor where you will find Boaz." (Ruth 3:3)

Putting on her best garment entailed removing the ones she had been wearing which could have been those of a widow. It therefore symbolized parting with her old status of a widow and preparing to start a new chapter as a married woman. 

Therefore if want to start a new chapter of your life and especially the chapter of being married, understand that you have to remove the old physical and mental garments you wore when you were single and begin wearing your best physical, mental and spiritual garments.

The new physical garments you can begin wearing are decent clothes which suit your body type.

The new mental garments you should begin wearing to help you find a godly spouse are thoughts from the Bible that you can meditate on like:
God sets the solitary in families. (Psalm 68:6)

Marriage is honorable. (Hebrews 13:4)  

God has opened His hand and satisfied my desire to get married. (Adapted Psalm 145:14-16)

The new spiritual garments you should begin wearing to help you find and marry a godly spouse are:
Salvation - Say with your mouth that "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins, God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

Righteousness - Doing the right thing in the sight of God all the time. This will also help you get married for the Bible tells us that The desire of the righteous will be granted (Proverbs 10:24).

Truth - Speaking the truth all the time.

Gospel - Reading the Gospels of Jesus to prepare yourself before you go out to mingle with other Christian singles.

Faith - Believing the Word of God so that you can destroy every dart the devil shoots in your direction.

The Word of God - Speaking the Word of God over your situation so that you can change your status from single to happily married.
