25 Bible Verses On Letting Go of Someone You Love
Today we will be dealing with 25 bible verses on letting go of someone you love. It’s hard to let go especially if it is someone we love and care so much about. However, as hard as it is to let go of someone you love, sometimes it is the best option for both of you. What would do if the person you are in love with is not spiritually compatible with you? Abraham and Lot were siblings. They loved one another. However, their continued stay together is hindering the manifestation of God’s covenant in the life of Abraham so they had to go separate ways.
If the Lord is showing you a revelation about that person you love and you saw clearly that going on with that person will bring doom, would it not be nice you let that person go? While letting go of someone you love is one of the toughest things to do, sometimes it could be our breakthrough. The scripture warned that we should not be equally yoked with unbelievers. One of the many mistakes young believers make is thinking they can change their partner.
You do not have the power to change anybody. If the Lord is telling you to leave someone, you should try everything you can to let that person go. It will be painful, but in the end, you will get over it. And if you think you are the only one facing such a problem, we wish to let you know you are not alone in the struggle. We have compiled a list of 25 bible verses on letting go of someone you love.
