Maybe you is considering getting a divorce and you are wondering what exactly does God think about divorce?
We must get 1 thing straight. God hates divorce, but divorcees are loved by him. He doesn't need to agree with a lot of our motives, although God loves us as His children, no matter what. We are living in a world now where folks believe divorce is an alternative. For example you are going through some battle, and if you are unhappy, our culture teaches us.
However, God designed marriage as a covenant between God, woman and a man. A covenant is. This covenant is an undying devotion of love toward an imperfect individual. It is an arrangement to appreciate, honor and respect that individual (Ephesians 5:22-23), for lifetime. Since marriage is a covenant and not a contract, divorce isn't possible.
Divorce is also hated by God since He knows the type of harm that it will do to us emotionally and emotionally, and He understands our children are hurt by it. He is even aware. More than half of of the men and women who have divorced -- mostly women -- find themselves alive beneath the poverty level for a time period.
Here's the great news. Even though there are times when divorce is inevitable, including in the case of abuse, abandonment and sexual immorality, it is always prudent to do a little bit of research and think it. The Bible is quite clear about if it's acceptable and exactly what a divorce is. However, our initial steps should be forgiveness, confession, reconciliation, and recovery. Divorce should be seen as a final resort.
The game-changer is that: Just do some of your research on this particular problem and then be happy to do anything God says. Here's a proposal: If you're fighting conflict in your marriage and considering divorce, first hear this message, "Divorce and Remarriage in the Church" and then pray about it and ask God to talk to you.
