There may be times in your life when God tells you to leave a situation. Sometimes an abused spouse has to flee to a domestic abuse shelter in order to escape the wrath of her husband. Although the Bible does not specifically address physical abuse as grounds for divorce; I believe God sometimes tells victims to flee for their lives.

A young lady in a church I pastored endured four years of physical abuse before she left in fear for her life. He had threatened to kill her, and she went to North Carolina, where her parents lived, to escape him. The reason she stayed so long was because she knew how much her father hated divorce. However, her father and the entire family believe it was God’s will to leave him. She is now remarried, and has three beautiful children.
