As a married couple or preparing for marriage, I would like to sort out my relationships. There are so many people in my life that are giving me advice and trying to run my life. So what do I do as I love them all?
“God has put each part [relationship level] just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part!” – bible.com/bible/116/1CO.12.14-19.NLT
Each person you’re in a relationship with has a place. Most have not accessed their relationship to assign them to the appropriate place. It’s time to establish your levels of relationships.
If God assigned each part where he wants it, why haven’t you assigned each part where you want them? An assignment is necessary if one wishes to avoid a body (life) that only has one part. A body (life) needs many parts and pieces. Today, you need to start arranging yours.
Lord, I’m asking for your help in assigning those in my life to their appropriate relationship level.
Help me please, to put people in their correct place, in Jesus’ name.
Your Action (What action based on your prayer can you take?):
I start today assigning people to their correct relationship level and making sure they and I respect the level they’re at.
