"Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away...the winter is past, the rain is over and gone." (Song of Solomon 2:10-11, NKJV)
Have you found it difficult to move on from a past season?
God has freedom and favor for you, now and in the future! This is your time to flourish and be fruitful.
A season is like the chapter of a book—it has a beginning, a middle, and an end! Then eventually, a new chapter opens. This is where we can learn from the tent-dwellers of the Bible, and tents today. A tent is secured when we connect it to the ground with cords. These are held in place with tent pegs (or stakes). Then, when we move on, it is time to pull ALL of the tent pegs out of the ground! When God calls us to move on, it is time to pull up the tent pegs of the past and let those cords go, for new things are up ahead—our Father has more for us!
Just as an umbilical cord connects an unborn baby to its life support system, we may be nurtured and fed spiritually through a ministry for a period. This can also apply to work and places we have lived, where our identity was nourished and affirmed.
If you relate to being in a new season, hear the Lord say, "I have a new source of supply for you! I have an abundance for you!
Keys to Cutting a Soul Tie from a Past Season:
When a "soul-tie" from a past season is operating, perhaps it is pulling us off track or stalling us, and as a result, we are unable to fully move with the fresh thing God is doing.
How? We have a tent peg located in the past. It may have been right and good once, but now, it is time to release it! And when the Holy Spirit reveals this to us, it's not bad news—it is good news! It has come to the surface to be removed.
In Song of Songs 3:2, the Shulamite maiden declares, "...I will seek him whom my soul loveth..." This is where your healing journey starts—in your relationship with Jesus. You realize He is wonderful, He is delightful, and He is glorious. Hear God say, "Come, be with Me. Let My love and power dissolve every tie to a past season."
Hear God speak them over you: "I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them" (Hosea 11:4, NKJV). You see, instead of cords holding you back, the powerful bands of God's love and kindness are drawing you! He is setting you free. He is healing you so that you no longer see through a lens of loss. You are looking, instead, through the lens of His love.
If there has been a mental or spiritual battle, take extra time to pray. Right now, God's grace is here to help you pull up tent pegs of regret, envy, and disappointment. You can be free from the negative effects of past relationships.
By faith, apply the work of the Cross; see and declare, "It finished!"
