Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Cor 10:5
Do you have high things in your life? Education, wealth, sense of own importance, your own goodness, pride in your place in society? Often these “high things” go against God and hinder our spiritual growth.
God is not against education & wealth but they sometimes interfere with God moving in our lives because we place them ahead of everything.
God has a great sense of the ridiculous. He will use the unlikely person over who the world would exalt. God will often use the fringes of society instead of high society.
