How To Break A Soul Tie

In the last post, we discussed the most asked question I receive:  How Do I Find My Life's Purpose?”.  I received so much feedback that I created a worksheet for everyone subscribed to the blog focusing on getting back to Gods unique design for you. This post is dedicated to the 2nd most asked question:

How do I break a soul tie? 

So here is the answer in no uncertain terms:

1) Accept Gods truth about the matter. It doesn’t matter how you broke up or why. The truth of the matter is that God wants that door closed! You can decide to force that door to stay open (only to eventually get your hand smashed because it doesn’t belong there), or let it close so the right door can open.  I remember shortly after being saved, I was hungry to hear God’s voice.  I was on my knees, on my feet, on my face, on my elbows wanting to hear Him.  Then He “spoke”:

2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 

I knew what I had to do. I had to break up with my boyfriend of 5 years.  It would have been simple if he was a dog, but he wasn’t. It would have been easy if he treated me terribly, but he didn’t. It would have been understandable if he wasn’t talking about marriage, but he was. The only thing he did wrong was not give his life to Jesus. It was enough for God. I decided it was enough for me.

2) Accept it will hurt. Period. There is no way around it. If it was easy you wouldn’t be reading this post! But don’t let the temporary pain cause you to make a lifelong mistake. After I broke it off with my boyfriend I cried for DAYS!!!  I cried because he didn’t understand the why. I cried because it was  a "wasted 5 years. I cried because my plan of being married by 25 was no longer an option (so I thought). My emotions were in such an upheaval, I couldn’t make sense of them. But, there was a little bubble, right beneath my emotions where I felt peace.  A knowing that I was doing the right thing which comforted me. It was the pleasure of the Lorda soft joy and freedom that only grew bigger day after day. It was my choice to focus on the peace rather than the temporary tears.  And so, it will be yours.

3) Stay in His presence. Don’t make the mistake of running into the arms of a temporary fix. Whether it be shopping, another person, partying, alcohol, etcRomans 4:20 says “In spite of all this, his {Abraham} faith in God’s promise did not falter. In fact, his faith grew as he gave glory to God.” In the middle of my crying spells, I worshiped through prayer, service, and His Word. I thanked Him for separating me from this situation, although I didn’t know how it was going to turn out. It was in His presence that I became strong to see this separation to its end. This is the time to run to Him and be strengthened.
It is there where He teaches youIt is there where He repairs youIt is there where He gives you new vision. It is there where He reveals truth to you

My prayer for you is that every soul-tie not approved by our Heavenly Father experience a new level of frustration, because it is not of Him. I pray that your eyes open to see the death that is in this relationship.  That He strengthens you in your inner man by His might to trust in His perpetual love over the fickle love of man.  That He gives you a fresh understanding that He loves you too much to lead you astray.  I pray that He surrounds you with wise people that can speak the truth of His word and encourage you through. In Jesus name. Amen.

Praying for you,
