Psalm 34:18 Breaking Up By Faith

Psalm 34:18 Breaking Up By Faith

18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.”

Psalm 34:18

Are you involved in a relationship you know is not glorifying to God?

Well, you’re not alone. At all.

Loneliness is not of God. He did not create us to be alone, to live by ourselves or, to walk the narrow path that leads to Him, alone.

In His Word, God teaches us that it’s not good for man to be alone. It’s no surprise, this goes for women as well.

And, because we fear loneliness, we will often stay in a sinful relationship we know is not honorable, instead of doing what’s right and parting away.

Why? Because heartbreak is one of the most uniquely painful human experiences.

Whether you’re experiencing grief after losing someone you love, or a break up with a long-term partner, feeling heartbroken can be devastating.

Breaking Up Is Hard

Heartbreaks are proven to be incredibly taxing physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Yes, a broken heart takes time to heal. During this time, we are able to get closer to God, and we can use this time of solace to gain in wisdom, which is more precious than gold.

But, heartbreaks and break ups are a part of life, and for many Christians, they are all but unavoidable.

Breaking up becomes the only recourse when we find ourselves involved in a relationship we know is not glorifying to God.

Notice I used the word recourse, rather than solution?

The reasoning for this is simple. Breaking up with someone won’t fix your problems, because whether you believe it or not, everyone had problems…

So, a break up is not a solution. It’s a redirection.

Unless you take significant steps to work on your issues, your sin, you are very likely to carry your burden right to your new partner’s feet, and hope they will carry it for you…

Fact is, many of us know we’re unevenly yoked, but we allow fear to blind us to the truth, and choose to honor Satan instead of God.

It’s human nature to sin against God.

It started with Adam and Eve, who got themselves kicked out of the Garden of Eden, and were cut off from the Tree of Life.

But, by God’s grace and mercy, we are forgiven and through His Word, we are given instruction and guidance. Through prayer, fellowship and worship, we are given courage and strength.

Know where to look for hope. Seek God’s love and strive to honor Him in your relationships, in your life…

Father God;
We thank you for your presence in our lives,

Shield us from evil through your Word, salvation and prayer,

And lead the lost to You.

God we pray that you will continue to bless us,
To bless our lives and fill us with hope.
We ask you Lord to guide our footsteps and lead us to the way everlasting,
Through faith in you Lord we seek salvation and our place with you in Heaven
According to your ways, your everlasting wisdom and strength.

May your will be done, here on Earth and through the vast Universe,
May our hearts be filled with your everlasting love and grace.
Praises to You God, Amen!
