God’s Love Is More Powerful Than Abuse

Abuse means “to misuse, to use improperly, to use up or to injure by maltreatment.” The effects of abuse can be devastating and long-lasting. Many people never recover from it.

There are different kinds of abuse: sexual, emotional, verbal, physical. No matter the form, the results are always terrible. It will keep you from functioning properly and prevent you from receiving and experiencing the righteousness, peace, and joy of God’s kingdom.

I understand this firsthand because I was abused throughout my childhood. Thankfully, I don’t just know the power of abuse, but I know the great power of God’s love. Because of the love of God, my past doesn’t have to affect my future anymore.

If you’ve been abused in the past, understand today that God loves you. Nothing can separate you from His love. He has made a way for you to be free from your past and to enter true Kingdom living.

With Jesus, there is hope for newness of life. Will you receive His love today?

Prayer Starter: God, I’ve been abused and misused, but I won’t let my past affect my future. Overwhelm me with Your love today so that I can experience Your freedom from abuse.
