HE LIFTS US UP– RESCUED!! When I did not even know that I needed it!

rescued

One of the big problems with verbal and emotional abuse is that it is progressive. It happens mildly, jokingly, and infrequently at first and then it increases. It becomes more frequent and more severe, with moments of explosiveness. The explosive phases are followed by honeymoon phases where the abuser is apologetic and loving. This cycle continues and many victims become so accustomed to the verbal and emotional attacks that it sadly becomes acceptable. Their self-esteem gets lower and lower. This is exactly what happened to me…

Years of emotional, verbal, and other abuses led me to not expect any better for my life. I had always hoped for the best—but settled for much less. Even though many family members and friends saw the abuse, “abuse” was an unspoken word. Also, I did not even identify it as abuse. I accepted it as part of married life. I had vowed “for better or worse…for richer or poorer” and I was determined to do everything possible to make my husband happy, despite his abuses which included several adulterous affairs. I believed that marriage was forever. I did not realize that God does not expect you to live in those situations. God does not want you to be abused, and He allows for divorce in cases of adultery. The following scriptures refer to these situations…
“I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife (or her husband), except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman (or man) commits adultery.” (Matthew 19:9 NLT)
“Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” (Colossians 3:19 NLT)

God did not make my husband abuse me or commit adultery. However, when my marriage fell apart, God orchestrated my steps as I leaned on Him to put the broken pieces of my heart and my entire life back together. He once spoke to me audibly. He answered my questions and made His Presence known in multiple ways. He told me that He had “rescued me from Egypt.” I then realized, that I did not even know that I was in “Egypt” or even needed “rescuing.” I had accepted my abusive situation…but God did not. God rescued me!!! And, what He did for me, He will do for others…

Prayer: Lord, I pray that you will rescue victims all around the world, deliver them from their bondage and bring healing and restoration to all  in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    God is no respecter of persons and what He did for me, He will do for many more!!!

  6. From one abused to another . . .
    I was extremely abused for the first 22 years of my life, by my oldest sister, unwittingly by my mother and by three “fathers” the last of whom was evil. I did not consider myself abused, but accepted what I was constantly told: that I was an ugly freak, totally evil, who no one would ever want, so I should do the world a favour and kill myself.

    Through a number of ‘circumstances’ (read miracles) I became a new creation in Christ 8th June 1958 and God changed my life completely. While the physical and sexual abuse was dealt with, the mental and emotional abuse continued to affect my life for many years. I had become a man hater. I was unable to make friends or to trust people and suffered from a very low self esteem. I also suffered from a recurring nightmare, related to one particular day.

    We serve an incredibly amazing God who gives us the victory, making us more than conquerors, and I praise Him that I can truly give thanks for my first 22 years and everything that happened, because He used those things to make me what I am and to give me a ministry to those who suffered/suffer from abuse.

    I know nothing of marital abuse because my Father gave me a wonderful husband and five sons who have perfect marriages themselves. I can’t counsel people in that situation the way you can and I’m sure our awesome God uses you to reach and bless them.

    • Wow…what an amazing story of God’s love. He loves the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. It is through Him that we are able to overcome the abuses of this world. When we can reach a point that we are thankful for the trauma in our lives for it was the catapult that threw us into our loving Father’s arms and into an intimate relationship with Him, then we have for sure overcome this world. Everything that we go through in this life is a test… a test to see if we will reach for the One who can help us through it and every obstacle that we overcome is another step in faith. We serve an amazing God whose plan for us is beyond our understanding, we just have to trust Him and hold onto Him as He guides us through it. Many blessings to you my friend as we both are members of God’s Army that He is raising to reach out to the abused and broken…
