life with personal ambition
Refusing to be
that is off limits
expecting God to back you
Maneuvering out of
independently with predetermined mind-sets
I am reigning
instead of God
Opinions that are
Not allowing God
PRESUMPTION: I have prayed many prayers in
my life, but one of the ones that I repeat
most often is that the Lord strongly keep me
from presumption. Presumption is assuming
something is God, when it is not.
Presumption is assuming something is not
God, when it is.
• Presumption is prophesying words in His
Name that He did not speak.

direction when it is not God’s will.

spiritual is God.

Prov 14:26-27 NKJV
In the fear of the LORD there is strong
confidence, and His children will have a
place of refuge. The fear of the LORD is a
fountain of life, to turn one away from the
snares of death.
Ps 19:12-13 NKJV
Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me
from secret faults. Keep back Your servant
also from presumptuous sins; Let them not
have dominion over me.
Job 36:9-10 AMP
Then He shows to them [the true character
of] their deeds and their transgressions,
that they have acted arrogantly [with
presumption and self-sufficiency]. He also
opens their ears to instruction and
discipline, and commands that they return
Prov 1:28-31 NKJV
"Then they will call on me, but I will not
answer; They will seek me diligently, but
they will not find me. Because they hated
knowledge and did not choose the fear of the
LORD, They would have none of my counsel and
despised my every rebuke. Therefore they
shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be
filled to the full with their own fancies.
