Soul Ties Need to be Broken
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body,
but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18 ESV
Have you ever felt locked in a relationship that you know you shouldn’t be in yet don’t know how to get out of? It can be difficult to let go of the past and break away from relationships that are not in God’s plan for us.
You might be in an unhealthy relationship that God is telling you that you need to end. Or you may have tried repeatedly to leave a certain situation, but always end up returning to it. Of course you want to please God. But it feels nearly impossible to resist the involvement with a certain person.
Your difficulty in removing yourself from a relationship is because of soul ties. Our souls are made up of three parts: mind, will and emotions. A soul tie is a strong emotional connection with another person with whom you are intimate on some level. Soul ties aren’t necessarily bad. God created them, so they have potential for good – especially if it someone who God wants in your life.
Marriage is an example of a positive soul tie. You have a soul tie with your spouse because you have been intimate with him.
But there are soul ties that we know are not God’s will for us. Sometimes we have entered into these intimate relationships unknowingly, maybe without first seeking God. For example, that Christian business partner, who seemed to be on the same page with you, and is now pulling in the opposite direction. You know God is pointing you in a new direction, yet you feel bound to the association, unable to function, as you should. What’s is it that’s keeping you bound? Your bonds must be broken. It’s time to be FREE!
There are many ways to break free from ungodly soul ties. Several years ago, there was a young girl in our church who knew she had to end a relationship, but couldn’t. So continued in the relationship, feeling miserable about it.
But one Sunday, the conviction of the Spirit was so profound, she knew she had to go ‘cold turkey,’ break the relationship with her boyfriend and move out. When breaking a soul tie you must not waver. You should neither call the person nor take their phone calls. Don’t email them. Delete their emails. Don’t visit places where you might run into them.
Partially breaking a soul tie won’t work. Partial obedience to God’s leading is still disobedience. Disobedience opens the door for a curse to come on your life. Fully obey what you know God is telling you to do and end the relationship.
When you compromise, your life will be filled with agony and anxiety. But when you obey God, peace and joy will come into your life. You can never have total peace when you’re in disobedience to God. It’s impossible. The only way to gain peace is by submitting to God and doing whatever He is asks of you.
The emotional part of your soul that is responsible for the soul tie, may stir up all kinds of feelings and second-guessing of yourself. God’s anointing removes every burden and destroys every yoke – even the yoke of a soul tie. God makes a way where there is no way. And obeying Him opens up the peace and joy that the soul tie has taken from you.
Will you make a choice to submit to your Heavenly Father? You will never regret it, because God always blesses obedience. Now, that’s the choice-driven life!

Prayer for Salvation:
God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
