I have had many people ask how they can get total freedom from soul ties so that they can move on to a new start. In response here are seven steps towards total freedom from Soul ties.
The first steps to total freedom is examining yourself. It’s looking closely at your life, habits and seeing areas where you have fallen or areas where you have walked in disobedience. It’s taking time and inviting the Holy Spirit to do an inventory to examine the broken areas of our lives that we need to commit ourselves to God.
As children of God it is so important that we do not stay enslaved to sin. Fornication, adultery and every way we have used our bodies and minds in wrong ways including pornography and masturbation are sins against God.
“Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.”
Romans 6:12-13 NIV
Sexual sins also defile our spirits and the spirits of others. As we engage in sin, we open the door to the devil and demons and give them further access into different areas of our lives.
Many Christians may not engage in physical sexual sin nevertheless they engage in fornication with their minds and their emotions, by getting intimately involved with someone that they are not married to.
In order for us to become totally free from Soul Ties we have to acknowledge our sin. We have to be very aware of the doors we have open whether through, fornication, adultery, fantasy or have deep intimacy or a close bond that is ungodly.
We also have to break soul ties if we have been victims of sexual sin, for example child abuse or rape.
In order to be truly set free it isn’t enough to just repent we have to acknowledge that true repentance is not going back. So, you have to do a clean out and throw everything away that would cause you to turn back to reminisce on the past relationship. This may be gifts, clothes or any other things given during the relationship. You may be in a relationship and fallen into sin. Even if you now want to collectively dedicate your friendship to God it is wise to remove everything that would bring back to mind the act and also eliminate things and activities that could cause you to fall in sin. So instead of going on outings alone go with friends etc.
We have to then renounce any covenant we have made to keep the vow. This could be us saying ‘I am going to be with you until the day I die’. We have to cancel the effects of the vow and renounce it in order to step into freedom.
We have to also forgive the person we have sinned with as well as forgiving ourselves. As long as we stay in a place of self-hate or unforgiveness we remain bound and unable to walk in freedom.
Renewing the mind
Our minds need to be renewed even when we have completed the above stages. We are now free from the bondage of sin, but our minds need to be reworded for us to have complete freedom. We have to mediate on God’s words and His promises to retrain our minds and in turn be freed total from sinful behaviour and habits.
Once we have completed the clearing out, repenting and renouncing, we must have a strong resolve to to follow God by the Grace of the Holy Spirit no matter what. We have to overcome the temptation to yield to our emotions and by the Spirit of God overcome the flesh and walk in victory.
We then have to give God thanks for all He has done to set us free and for everything He has in store for us in the future.
Lord I pray every ungodly soul tie with be broken.
Much Love in Christ,
