I Dethrone Myself

We are often the biggest obstacles to achieving our dreams and goals. As I reflect on my life, the struggles and many poor choices I made,  I know that I have contributed to some of the set backs I have experienced.

In all honesty, I may have given the devil too much credit for this and that.  The biggest obstacle in my way was staring back in the mirror, ME.

With time comes maturity, wisdom and acceptance. It is easier for me to admit it to myself now. I believe some of my actions were not good; although my intentions may have been.  Yet the Bible talks about the heart, “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” Jer.17:9

I dethrone myself

Wrong thinking can take us to hell and back. Wrong thinking can be ideas and misconceptions we believe. Many have missed their destiny because of wrong thinking that they believed was right thinking at the time.

Our world is shaped by our thoughts whether they are right or wrong. Our thoughts have creative power, “As a man thinketh, so is he” – Prov. 23:7

Even though I am part of the Royal family of God and co-creator with Him, I cannot take the place of the King of kings and Lord of lords.  I must leave Him on the throne and I take my rightful place at His feet.

I dethrone myself. I relinquished power to You
I surrender my life to You God, take your rightful place on your throne.
Rule and reign over every aspect of my life
Your throne is eternal.

You, O LORD, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. (Lam 5:19 NASM)

  1. So true.  And almost sad.  Even sticking close to the Word – my immature understanding of the Word has lead me down many bad paths…It’s a scary thought that my thoughts can lead me down a wrong path – but absolutely true. How can we avoid this?

  2. Hello Adrienne, thank you for your comment. We can never go wrong when we apply the Word in the right context. It is easy to mis-interpret the Word hence why we need the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    The Holy Spirit helps us in our understanding of the Word and prayer.
    Pray and ask God for wisdom and understanding.
    Ask the Holy Spirit for revelation of the Word.

    Dont dwell on wrong thoughts, act quickly and put a stop to it. 

    Wake up daily with  purpose and intentionally focus on goals that are in line with the destiny you want for yourself.

    Hope these help, have a great weekend.

  3. Amen. The song that comes to mind after reading this is.. “I surrender all” by Clay Crosse. Here are most of the lyrics..
    I have wrestled in the darkness of this lonely pilgrim land
    Raising strong and mighty fortresses that I alone command
    But these castles I’ve constructed by the strength of my own
    hand
    Are just temporary kingdoms on foundations made of sand

    In the middle of the battle I believe I’ve finally found
    I’ll never know the thrill of victory ’til I’m willing to
    lay down
    All my weapons of defense and earthly strategies of war
    So I’m laying down my arms and running helplessly to Yours
    I surrender all my silent hopes and dreams
    Though the price to follow costs me everything
    I surrender all my human soul desires
    If sacrifice requires
    That all my kingdoms fall
    I surrender all
    If the source of my ambition is the treasure I obtain
    If I measure my successes on a scale of earthly gain
    If the focus of my vision is the status I attain
    My accomplishments are worthless and my efforts are in vain
    So I lay aside these trophies to pursue a higher crown

    And should You choose somehow to use the life I willingly
    lay down

    I surrender all the triumph for it’s only by Your grace

    I relinquish all the glory, I surrender all the praise

    I surrender all!

    Thank you SO much Buky, for this reminder. May we always remember to surrender all! Thinking of you and your family, praying all is well with you all:)! 

    Thanks again – Much love & blessings to you all!
