Wednesday Word 7/31

Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 1 Corinthians 6:16

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
Augustine

Soul ties are very important to everyone on the face of this planet. Who are you joined to? Who are your friends?

It’s about knowing what you’re mixing your soul with. It’s more than who you have sex with; it’s about who your friends are, who you tell your secrets to, who you share the depths of your soul with.

The soul is the mind, the will and the emotions. Your thought life is in your soul, your feelings are in your soul; decision-making is in your soul. And in order for God to restore our souls, it’s important to know about soul ties.

Whether it’s by sex or by constant communication: we end up polluting our spirits when we get together with others, because we are uniting our souls with them. This is why God tells us not to be yoked with unbelievers: do not tie yourself up with unbelievers. A soul tie is like two cardboard boxes which are glued together and then ripped apart in attempts to restore their individuality (or singleness). We may think the relationships we become involved in are over, and attempt to physically separate ourselves. But just like Cardboard 1 has some of Cardboard 2, and vice versa: it is the same with our souls. When we end relationships, some of our soul goes with that person, and some of that person stays with us.

A spiritual soul tie is the joining or knitting together of two people, they willingly and unwillingly share the same heart. The Lord wants us wants us to be knit to Him, and no other. He wants us to submit to His will, not the will of another! And He wants us to have the mind of Christ, not the mind of someone else!

In order to be restored, we must rid ourselves of the things which bind us to others.

How to break soul ties:

  • Repent of the relationship and the things done in it (change your ways)
  • Ask for and receive, God’s forgiveness (forgive yourself too)
  • Renounce: if you need to release a friend, lover, family member, musician, genre of music or media
    (this can be indefinitely or temporary)
  • Renew your mind with bible scriptures

Let’s pray:

Thank you lord for the freedom and restoration that is available to us. Thank you for granting us forgiveness and giving us the convictions to change our ways. I pray you bring freedom and restoration to all of your sons and daughters who take the time to acknowledge they may have been unequally yoked. In Jesus name, Amen.
