This is the final part of the series.
5. When you are in love with an abuser
When you are in love with one that beats you and then sleeps with you and you are not yet married, you don’t need to pray. You just need to pack your things and leave that guy or lady alone! A lady can also abuse a guy in some extreme cases, not really beating with her hands, but with her money!
You don’t even need counseling, you just need common sense!
But Pastor, it is not easy! Okay, so it is easy to be beaten daily? And then be seen as a sex toy to satisfy the lust and the cravings of a depraved person who will not eventually marry you?
“Oh Pastor, he is actually a nice person! It’s just that he has anger issues” Really? So who says you are the recipient of the anger tantrums whose cause you know nothing about? All in the name of love? Nah! It is not so from the beginning! God never meant for any of us to find ourselves in some abusive, manipulative, and basest of all lust! That is not love!
Why subject yourself to such harrowing experiences? Common, free yourself as a bird and flee away! That is why God gave you legs! Run! Run run! There is fire on the mountain and that fire burns!
Go and wait for God’s plan for your life rather than trying to create a plan for yourself!
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Psa 124:7 (KJV)
You can only pray in this scenario if you are already married because God’s first option is not always to divorce! And if the abuse continues unrepentantly to the point your life is threatened, then you have a decision to make.
I pray for you this morning and every area of your life where you need to make a decision in other to please God, God will strengthen you in Jesus name.
