Divorce Breaks the Union

"There is a union in marriage that divorce breaks. It rips hearts apart and blood spills out everywhere," says Roy.

God binds two people together in marriage. The definition of bind here does not mean that He ties two people in a way that imprisons them; rather, He causes the two individual spirits to combine with each other to form a cohesiveness, such as what happens in a chemical action. If God has bound people together in this amazing way, do people have the right or the ability to try and undo it? We humans must seek to understand the supernatural, godly forces of marriage and to understand God's character before we try to take matters into our own hands regarding our relationships.

Perhaps you are wondering why we are discussing God's ideal for marriage when your own marriage has ended. It is important for you to learn as much as you can about God's will for all kinds of relationships so that you can continue to grow and mature in Him. This knowledge will also help you in future situations, such as when you counsel friends who are considering divorce or starting new relationships, or if the possibility of reconciliation or remarriage ever arises for you or someone you know. As you draw closer to Christ and draw others to His healing and wholeness, you will continue to heal more fully than you could imagine.

"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave—what can you know?" (Job 11:7-8).
