A child trusts older people without question, and that is why so many are hurt. As we become Christians, we are to trust God the same way as a child would trust a parent. But we know God would not hurt us or tell us to hurt others.
After the abuse, I went through a series of emotions. The first being hate for this person. It was really eating me up inside. Every time I thought about, saw or even heard his name mentioned, the hate would swell up inside of me like a gushing fountain. It helped me to not have to be anywhere near this man. I was always fearful, emotional, afraid to trust anyone, and lacked confidence in myself, because I guess I felt it was somehow my fault and felt guilty about it.
Then God got involved in this situation and told me point blank it was not my fault. I was not to blame for what this person did to me. The adult knew better. But in order for me to be healed of this physically, emotionally, mentally, and spirtually, I had to forgive this man. You can bet I didnít like hearing this! I even argued with God about it. But he is always right!
So I started to pray for the man every day and when I did this I started to feel better. God said that praying for him and asking God to forgive him, released me from the pain my abuser had inflicted on me. I started to feel free, and happy and painfree in more ways than one.
Now I no longer hate this person. I have only seen him maybe once in the last 20 years. And when I did see him, I had no more fear or hate in my heart for him. I know this person cannot hurt me anymore, and in fact I kinda feel sorry for him because he does not know my God, and is lost and now I pray to God for his salvation. Quite a turnaround ainít it! But God is so good to us! This is how you get healed of this. Start right now to pray for this person and God will touch your life in every area and you will come through this too!
