Q: “What if you no longer want your husband back but you just want to be with your children? Is that against the law?”
Hi Sis! In different seasons of life, it’s always good to seek Gods perfect will and to obey.
You can keep asking Him.
If you are not interested to have your husband back now, it may be the Lord’s seasonal protection for you. Though His word doesn’t change that the marriage He put together, let no man (or woman) put asunder; He wants the marriage bed undefiled and will judge the adulterer and sexually immoral; that many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is The Lord’s will that prevails.
Meanwhile God is your Husband who is with you as He stands firmly as the Third Party to your marriage covenant and continues to honor cherish love, provide for, be present for you every day.
“For your Maker is your husband— the Lord Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit— a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God. “For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back.”
Isaiah 54:5-7 NIV
“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.”
Psalms 68:5-6 NIV
