John 1:11 ESV He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.

  

Many people going through divorce or separation know very well the feeling of rejection. It must be one of the most painful of pains a human being can experience in this life time. The facts state that divorce is 10 times more destructive to one’s heart than if someone had died. Jesus knew very well what rejection was all about. His own disciples rejected Him, His closest friends rejected Him. The people He came to save rejected Him. Jesus was rejected in His own home town, by everybody who loved and laid down their lives to Jesus, just to go and do exactly the opposite in the darkest day in History. But Jesus knew that no matter what happened, He had His father in His heart and with Him all things were and still are possible.

 

The Lord knew the only way to go through this valley was holding God’s hand all the way, even if it meant travelling alone for awhile. God took Jesus, rejected by the world, and made Him the cornerstone of everything.

 

Mark 12:10 Didn't you ever read this in the Scriptures? 'The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.

 

Jesus became the foundation of God’s kingdom, all power and dominion was given to Jesus, and through Jesus God made us partakers of this divine nature. The Lord is creating cornerstones all over the world. Jesus is establishing people to stand for their marriages and the salvation of their spouse. How ironic that those once rejected has become the basis for the rebuilding and restoration of their marriages?

 

Do you still have pain of rejection? I have good news for you… The Lord will not only rebuild your broken and scattered heart but He will also use you to establish His kingdom Here on earth and your marriage, so that He can get all the Glory.

 

Psalm 34:17-20 ESV When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.

 

What a promise! His peace can be yours today. Choose to let the Lord take control of your life and surrender all to Him.

 

Here are some points you can use to help you start the healing process;

  • Forgive your spouse for everything they have done to hurt you
  • Don’t speak harsh words about your spouse, rather cover their nakedness
  • Let the Lord invade your heart and mind, and fill you with His Love
  • Always keep your eyes on Jesus and not your circumstances
  • Strive to be like Jesus more and more each day
  • Spend daily devotional time with Him, pray and praise
  • Pray daily for your spouse
  • Focus more on others rather than oneself
  • Get involved in your Local Church

o   Take the Focus off yourself and place it on Jesus

o   Inner healing can only be found through Jesus and His Word. He is waiting for you to give Him all your sorrow and pain so that He can put His garment of praise over you

Lord Jesus, we come to You on this day, and Lord we pray that you will heal our broken hearts and replace it with your oil of gladness. Lord take away all my pain and brokenness and heal me completely. Lord I also pray that if I harbour any un-forgiveness towards my spouse that You will reveal it to me, so that I can confess this to You as sin and forgive them. Lord I love You and I pray that You will help me to rebuild my marriage on the solid rock of Jesus. I know nothing is impossible for You and I trust You with my whole heart. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
