Divorce is not a Dirty Word

Week 1 Day 4

Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Psalm 5:1-3

There are times when you really need someone to hear you. In these moments the full effect of your divorce may hit you hard. You may have had problems with your ex, but at least there were times when someone heard what you had to say (or least it so appeared). Now, the stillness of the room has almost an echo to it and you feel alone. God hears.

Through the devastation of divorce Satan will play tricks on you. Thoughts will enter your mind and lead you to thinking and even believing that no one will ever be close to you again. You will believe that your oneness is aloneness. All of these thoughts and the feelings associated with them are real in the moment, but they are lies straight from the pits of hell.

God is always there. The key word is your "expectation." You, like all people, want immediate results, instant gratification. You want and need an answer, or at least a comment, right now. God knows your needs. God knows your pain. He too has experienced rejection and desertion through Jesus. He also knows that through this storm of your life, you will gain strength if you wait on Him. (See Isaiah 40:29-31.)

Seek Him daily. Seek Him early. Seek Him consistently. Be real before Him. He knows you anyway. He is there.

Oh, God, I am trying to be real. I am trying to communicate my thoughts and feelings to You. I don't understand what I am going through and especially why I am going through it. I acknowledge that I will need a special anointing of Your grace for this season. I lay my life before you. I know that if I expect something from You it will involve trust and trust in my life has been shattered. I will trust You with my mind and maybe soon my heart will catch up. I need You Lord!
