2 Corinthians 10:17
But "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord."
For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
As you humble yourself before Me, I will lift you up. I will take you to places in My Spirit that are far above anything you could think possible. The lower you go, the higher you will soar with My Spirit. I will lift you up, validating you before all of heaven and earth.
I saw every moment in your life when the enemy planted lies about your destiny. Strategies that he covertly implemented using circumstances and even the words of those you revered and respected to sabotage your future.
My Beloved, it is time to pull down and take captive every thought, every word spoken over you, every circumstance that has exalted itself against the knowledge of My Word. The Word is My seal and decree over your life. Anything that is contrary must be quickly cast down and given no place to lodge.
When the tempter comes with whispers telling you that you must exalt and commend yourself, bringing attention and glory to your flesh, take that whisper captive and abolish it out of your mind. If you will humble yourself and give Me all the praise and glory, you will walk in favor with man and with Me, your heavenly Father.
Father, I pull down every idolatrous thought that has hindered my relationship with You. As an act of my will I climb down from all thrones that I have proudly erected in self-glory. I dethrone myself in humble adoration to You. You alone sit upon the Throne and I give You all of the glory!
