...To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part......
Except, you're not even at the alter yet.
In fact, you've actually been at home in bed staring at his pictures on Instagram all night.
Oh? You didn't know?
He has become food for your soul and you can't go a day without thinking about him.
He's soul food and you're way past plate 2.
Your soul has unknowingly intertwined with this man, and now you've made vows in your heart, so now before you even get to the alter, your soul is already saying "I do".
After all, you told your homegirls that he's your husband, right?
And they gassed you up like fuel, so now at night you're mind is racing & you're thinking of all the things y'all could do.
Ooooo, how your future children will look.
You daydream of your unborn seeds, will you two have a boy or girl first?
You're a thief! You've stolen his last name before he has even given it to you.
Let my man breathe.
You spend day and night replacing your last name with his and seeing if the wedding hashtag will fit on the invitation that you already created on Adobe.
You've allowed your heart to be brainwashed, corrupting it with ill thoughts of a future with this man.
You sing love songs throughout the day, hoping that the lyrics will speak to you as much as it can.
What song is it today??
You've allowed this man to take the throne seat of God in your heart.
It's like the final round of musical chairs, except when the wedding music stops, God's not the one in the seat.
But here's the plot twist.
but so is he, and so he just HAS to be your husband, right?
He spoke on relationships in Bible study so that just HAD to be your sign, right?
And maybe he greeted you on entering and at the end told you to have a good night.
Your heart is so consumed with him that even if God wanted to talk regarding this situation, the volume would be too loud.
Your mind has twisted your reality.
"He's my Boaz"
You plan your schedule around his, hoping for a chance for him to finally fall into YOUR love with you because here's the kicker:
He doesn't even know you.
It's a soul tie.
Or did we not know that vows are known to bind the soul. They're called inner vows, contracts we place on our lives, and you've created so many of them,
"I will love you forever, I'll love nobody else but you, he's going to be my husband, I'm going to marry him" but you've said these with an empty ring finger.
However in Numbers 30 verse 2,
We know that's not what we should really do.
But don't be fooled.
Indeed, yes, it takes 2 to tango, and out of marriage that can be a soul tie too,
But a soul tie itself can also be with just you.
Wait. Let's quickly go back to the start,
What happened to the command of us guarding our hearts? (Proverbs 4:23)
Did you forget that life and death is in the power of the tongue? (Proverbs 18:21)
And that we should keep our tongue from evil and our lips from telling lies? (Psalm 34:13)
Or did you forget that by our words we speak will be justified (Matthew 12:37) or that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7)
Because if that is really the case, you're already Mrs. Smith WITHOUT the ring.
We go to church and sing,
"Jesus is the lover of my soul..."
Which is and will be always true but
Who's your soul the lover of?
Because remember, there's another guy who would love to get a hold of your soul, and I'm not talking about The One above.
So if you feel like this is you, if there's inner vows that you have created,
toward someone you thought would be your boo,
Then in your quiet time, in a quiet place, get on your knees and intentionally pray,
In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit--
And say it loud enough so heaven and hell can hear it--
I repent of every sin related to this soul tie on my part and right now I call back every emotion, will, or even a thought,
I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind, my heart, soul and all of my emotions,
And I pray, dear God, that today you fill me with your complete wholeness.
I declare every demonic hold on my life that has come from this soul tie null and void.
And I declare that You, Jesus Christ, You alone are Lord.
Lord over my mind, my heart, my soul, my life.
You're the King of my heart, and around you my soul is retied.
And so shall it be on Earth as it is in Heaven.
This year. God is calling back His children
This year. Women AND men, we're calling back our souls.
Remember ungodly soul ties aren't just formed by sexual interaction or with people of the opposite sex, take David and Jonathan for example, an example of a godly soul tie, the Bible says that they're souls were KNIT.
But inner vows can also lead to soul ties,
Just trust me.
Because you don't want to be thinking
"To death do us part" to Thomas or Whitney,
When actually, you're future spouse is waiting for you at the end of 2019.
