God knows how to break soul-ties. Especially a tie that He is not going to use in your future. Depending on how deep the tie is and how long it has been going on, is what determines how difficult this process will be.
I shared about my relationship with a former Pastor (single) and how much I wanted to marry him (he wanted me too) and even after God spoke to me to let it go, it took about a year for that tie to break. God spoke loud and clear and there was no bargaining with the Lord. No means no.
Even if I saw this man today, I might remember, but I would never go back to that because that tie has long since been broken. I don’t believe I would even be tempted. But some ties are so deep, it sometimes takes something bad to break it and that is because that tie would become a threat to the future
Let me share a story with you, just to let you know, how true that is. I was having lunch with a woman who was once engaged to a relative of mine and as we talked she began to tell me that she thought she would still end up with my relative even though she was married (with a child) and so was my relative!!!! That is what I call a dangerous soul-tie.
Years had passed and she was still hoping to be with my relative. I’ve seen it time and time again. Women, unable to let go, waiting for that mans current mate to die, so they can step back into place. It’s so sad. But in all of the cases I’ve seen this (quite a few), it’s never once happened. But what it did to the women, was ruin their current relationship because they could not let go of their former lover.
I will never marry anyone who has that kind of bond. It would have to be completely severed, and I mean destroyed with no possible chance of it coming back together and that usually means something tragic will have to happen.
I’ve seen God do it in the past by someone ending up locked up and now I understand why God was showing something like this may have to happen again. When you bind yourself to someone by using the words “twin soul” or “soul-mate”, and it’s not God’s will, usually only a tragedy can sever that bond, so that you will be free to move on and be happy about it. But it doesn’t have to end that way. But the key is to LET GO!
1 Samuel 18:1
King James Version (KJV)
18 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.
