“In the year that King Uzziah died I SAW THE LORD SITTING UPON A THRONE, HIGH AND LIFTED UP; and the train of his robe filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1
A wise woman taught me that we have a lot of King 🤴 Uzziah’s is our lives that prevent us from seeing our mighty ✨God✨ high and lifted up seated upon his throne.
We see in this scripture that King Uzziah, who idolized Isaiah as his main prophet + gave him status + praised him for his prophetic gift + gave him favor over all the people, had to die in order for Isaiah to truly see and hear from the Lord.
We can’t hear the Holy Spirit as long as we sit on our “own” throne.
We can’t see God’s work in our lives while focusing on our “own accomplishments” when we can do NOTHING apart from the vine.
She then asked me:
1. What are the King Uzziah’s in your heart? 🖤
2. Where do you have favor and status with man that blind you of your favor with Jesus?
3. Where do you need to ‘sell your position?
My King Uzziahs are… one is my face LOL🤦🏻♀️
I know I can run into any store or gas station to use the bathroom and they will let me bc of my face and physical appearance.
I know physical beauty gains favor in this world and that feeds a lot of my security and comfortably of ‘not trying’.
2️⃣: My church (@realityla) 💙that I elevate a bit too highly.
I am just so proud to be a part of a church who carries out their mission of equipping the saints + discipling us with SOUND truth and wisdom for growth + feeds us solid meat and not milk 😉 + and then sends out armies of warriors to plant churches all over our city and in the world.
[[ 4 church plants in 4 years ]]
3️⃣: My house and finances.
It’s a given that we all gain a lot of favor with man when you have money or own a home. There is much coveting I see with that.
What are YOUR King 👑Uzziahs?!
