Divorced? 4 Promises God Wants You to Embrace

Divorced? 4 Promises God Wants You to Embrace

Posted on August 08, 2018

There was a season when I couldnít walk into a room without feeling like every eye was on me. I was the Christian who got divorced.

When I got married, I thought it would be forever. We knew Jesus, and we were in love. But two years in, the relationship began to break down and after a year of separation, the divorce papers were served.

I didnít have a plan for this. I didnít know how to recover from this. But God did. As I surrendered my unforgiveness and my pain, God revealed four promises that are true for me and are true for you.

4 Promises God Wants You To Embrace

1. God did not do this to you, and He is not mad at you.

Divorce breaks the marriage covenant, a promise between you and your spouse and God. God hates divorce because itís a broken promise, a rebellion against Him. The Bible calls this sin.

When Christians talk about divorce, we often miss an important distinction: God hates divorce, not the divorced. God hates sin, not sinners. Jesus died for us in Godís greatest act of love to his children while we were still sinners (Romans 3:23).

2. You can overcome the pain, anger,†and sadness.

I was a believer. I loved Jesus. I believed my sins were forgiven. But I had no victory, no peace and no joy in my life. I felt condemned all the time. I was worn-out, burned-out, frustrated and miserable.

The mistakes in my failed marriage led to guilt, baggage,†and labels that I allowed to define me for a really long time. Romans 8:1 says, "there is NOW no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

† Moving forward starts by letting God in.

I had to make the choice: Was I going to believe Godís Word or the negative thoughts that contradict Godís Word? The voice we respond to will determine the future we experience. If you keep hearing things that clearly are not from Jesus, who do you think is planting those thoughts in your mind? Who is known for telling lies?

Christian, we have a real enemy who wants nothing more than to allow you to wallow in the wreckage of your divorce. Moving forward starts by letting God in.

3. God can and will work through your divorce if youíll let Him.

Romans 8:28 says, ďin all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." For everything to work together for our good, God has to be in control of all things (Ephesians 4:6). Everything that happens to us is God-allowed and God-filtered. Every ounce of pain, hurt, tears, emotions and anger passed through Godís hands, and He has allowed it to happen.

We can waste a lot of time asking ďWhy?Ē Why doesnít change the fact that the divorce happened. But asking God, ďWhat are you teaching me?Ē can start a change in your heart that you never thought possible.††

4. God still wants to do great things in you and through you.

I thought God was finished with me. I assumed He couldnít use me anymore because I was divorced, damaged goods. If youíre not dead, Godís not done.

I am a pastor, worship leader, full-time minister of the Gospel, and Iíve been divorced. Four years after my divorce, Iím remarried to the most incredible woman God ever created. She was not concerned with my past and loves me for who I am ó a child of God, not the damaged, condemned, miserable, worn-out person I thought I was. We have a beautiful 11-month-old daughter. My little girl is daily reminder that God is good, and His plans are greater than anything we could ever imagine.

If youíre not dead, Godís not done.

Looking back, itís obvious that my healing and happiness was only possible because of Jesus. Whatís the point of a Savior if there is nothing to be rescued from? I needed to be rescued from myself and all the lies I was believing. Through the promise of Godís Word and the relationships I built in this church, I am free and healed. This could not have been possible without Jesus.

So where are you with Jesus? If you donít have a relationship with Him, if youíve never fully given your life and your pain to Him, talk to someone today.

My partner and I have been together for 12 years but we broke up 3 years ago after our fight over his cheating habits which they all say it's not their fault but I was the one getting hurt. I was upset over the whole issue that I had to call for the separation but I felt really bad. The separation really had effects on my daughter who had to live away from her father that I had to think of a way to settle things out and find solution to my husband's behavior. I found out about a spell caster Doctor Odunga who helped me with the problem to make my spouse come back to me and make him stop cheating. Soon, Richard came back to me begging at Sicily where I stayed after our divorce and I told him he has to show me he has changed for me to believe him. He came back twice after that day to Sicily begging me to have him back. Its been 8 months now since my husband came back to me and we have been living together since that day. I believe this man can also help too with your problem. His email address is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp him at +2348167159012
