If someone or something is calling the shots in my life, why am I surprised when things turn out the way that they do. This is normal. It often surprises me when normal people expect uncommon results. They place a person, place, thing or wrong idea in their relationship level seven slot, but expect answers from God. What sense does that make? When you have a misaligned relationship level seven, the one who’s calling your shot, it’s this person you need to look to, to help you out of your problems. Because most have this relationship all wrong, this person, place, thing, or idea is unable to come through for them and give the results they desire.
When we have a misaligned or wrongly established relationship level seven, which means we have someone other than God calling the shots in our life, then we desperately need prayer to change this.
“God [Relationship Level 7] has blocked my way so I cannot move…” – Job
[Pray This] Lord, I’ve made the mistake of having a person, place, thing, or wrong idea calling the shots in my life. This has led to nothing but chaos, turmoil and negative results, so I’m asking You to help me change this. I want You on the throne in my life calling my shots so that I win in every area of my life in Jesus’ name.
(What action based on your prayer can you take?)
The first action I must take is to define who or what I’ve given permission to have the final say in the things that I do. Who’s calling my shots. Once I identify this, I begin to come up with ways to replace this thinking with God-type-thinking.
