Running Back to an Old Love


Do not go running back to an old love unless you are totally clear the Lord God almighty is leading you. Whether that old love be a person, a relationship, a thing, a situation, a job, a location, a commitment, a dream, certain circumstances, whether the old love be anything or anyone, do not go back unless you are sure it is God leading the way.

The devil will go all out to try to get us to return to an old love God has told and helped us to let go. The devil in his ever mission to steal, kill, and destroy will taunt and tempt us to no end to go back to where and with whom God does not want us to be. The devil will use anything and anyone to lure us back. He will try to make everything and everyone look wonderful and beautiful and safe and lovely and healthy to get us to go backwards. He would love nothing more than for us to turn our back to God and in the flesh to go running backwards to an old love.


If you return to an old love without prayer, without the Bible, and without asking a number of people to pray for you and to help you know God’s will for you, you can rest assured you are likely not hearing from God.

The devil wants us to live for self. The devil wants us to be consumed with ourselves and with what we think will make us happy and feel good.

Jesus calls us to forsake all for Him. He calls us to deny self, take up our crosses, and follow Him. And sometimes that means leaving behind something or someone and choosing not to return.

If you have already gone back to someone or something that is not God’s will for you, pray to God for forgiveness and the strength to walk away. And seek love, encouragement, prayer, and support from Jesus followers not only to walk away but also not to return to what and whom God wants you to let go and leave in the past.

If you are about to return to an old love, cry out to God for His will and seek prayer and support before you make a decision.

Don’t let the devil drag and drive you back to an old love God has told you to let go. Hold onto God and the Bible for dear life and in Him you will find the strength to live in obedience to Him. Walk forward down the pathway God sets before you. And rejoice in the victory God gives you over not going back.

Press on, dear friend, love and follow Jesus with every ounce of your heart, AMEN!
