"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" (Psalm 119:105).
The Bible could be considered the "owner's manual" for life. This manual will help guide you through all of life, especially through tough situations like divorce. It is through the Bible that you will find God's help and guidance for your particular circumstances. The Bible is also where you will find healing and hope.
There are many other books on healing from divorce and other emotional tragedies in life. As good as some of these books are, the best resource to help you heal is the Bible. Over the next several days, you will discover what the Bible says about divorce.
Perhaps you are on the receiving end of a divorce; you did not want the divorce to occur, and you wonder what God thinks of your situation. Maybe you instigated the divorce, and you now wonder if you made the best choices. As you study the Bible and learn God's view of marriage and divorce, keep one thing in the forefront of your mind: God is a God of love and not condemnation. His love and forgiveness is infinite, and His Word is full of encouragement and hope for you personally.
"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4).
