I know God doesn't like divorce but I'm divorcing my husband because I'm tired of being abused. I can't & won't take anymore cruel treatment from him. I've had way more than enough. He's emotionally & verbally abusive all the time for last year. He won't apologize but ONLY cares about himself, not me. What would you do if you were me?

I would divorce as soon as possible. God knew this was going to happen. Of course, God may not like divorce, but God also doesn't like abuse, and I'm SURE you don't deserve to be treated like that. Just pray and God will guide you.

Hello Kathie its really sad to hear your experience however before you divorce (hoping you have not yet ) there is something that you need to know. Proverbs 18.21 your tongue has the power to life and death and they that love of it shall it its fruit. See God has put power in your tongue, it can create and it can destroy. As you speak divorce (by your tongue, you give life to it) however you can also speak life into your husband. Imagine if you started speaking these words of life. My husband is caring and loving, He loves me, He is not abusive , He loves our children. Kathie with time your going to see change that I am sure. As you speak God will strengthen the word of your confession and bring it to pass. HE created the world by speaking and has given you the same ability. I look forward to your testimony

No one deserves to be abused, however, it is inevitible if he isnt spirit filled given the depravity of our flesh. There is no middle ground if one isnt serving the Lord they are by default serving the kingdom of darkness. Please be encouraged beloved daughter of God, He is intimately acquainted with all your ways and loves you passionately. Pray my dear, pray for him, "God forgive him He knows not what he does". Sometimes we must love the HELL out of someone that is Loving him so hard with the love God that the hell literally falls out of him. I too was abusive and indulged in fleshly desires while I was saved years ago and walked closely with God experiencing many miracles too magnficent to deny ,yet foolishly i slowly stopped beginning everyday with prayer and slowly pride crept in before i knew it I was living worse than before I was saved. Like a dog returning to its vomit I returned to the empty lies fulfilling fleshly desires of drugs and every other vice imagineable. My wife prayed and prayed and finally she told me I was a bully and was scared of me, BROKEN from hearing that from my precious wife I cried out to God and that night attended a mens fellowship after which They layed hands on me and prayed, like when the scales fell from Pauls eyes i was able to see and I was immediately transformed and delivered from ALL addictions when I returned home i destroyed all things drug related and threw out psych meds that i depended on for what only Jesus could provide. Since that night I fellowship with Jesus every morning listening to praise music every morning and reading praying like never before. Having been overcome with evil I was literally dead and then King Jesus showed up on the scene! Hallelujah! It is his responsibility to seek God I am certainly not taking away from that, But God! When the flesh is raising Cain God is Able! I wanted to encourage you sister, If you would like to reach out to my wife Im certain she has a Word from on high in this due season. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you 2 in touch. God despises divorce according to Malachi 2:16 but read that verse in its context because he desires a Godly Offspring and an abusive home with a Man not in his rightful place as Head representing Christ loving the church isnt conducive to a raising Godly Offspring. You shouldnt have to endure abuse and there is no way to call it right it is dead wrong! Please email my wife Catherine so my she may simply share her testimony with you and we are going to pray from you. Jesus loves you dear, be encouraged. If indeed it does tragically end in divorce Jesus will love you just the same, perfectly. There is nothing we can do to have him love us any more or less. He simply loves us with a perfect unfailing love. Jesus stated it is better a man cast himself into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than to cause one of his little ones that believe in Him to stumble, this im afraid is one of those circumstances in which your husband may cause you to stumble and may God have mercy on his soul if He stiffneckedly(new word lol) refuses to repent. In His Service, -Jason

It is a group of very powerful believers and Fr Richard invested much time in visiting me in prison

God is not with divorce, read 1st Corinthians 7th Chapter. The person that said to divorce immediately was speaking by Satans spirit and not by Gods Spirit. See how man and woman can mislead by their words, that's why God says in his only HOLY Words which is the KJV HOLY BIBLE only. St. John3:34 He whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God. 1st Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things. Man and womans opinion is not of God, God calls it your own vain opinions in the Holy Scriptures.
