Do you live like God, as revealed in scripture as Elohim, is the God of gods and there is nothing else above Him?
Repent of anything you might have placed above Elohim.
Pray and ask Elohim to show you the false gods in your life. Ask Him to help you see that He is ‘exponentially more majestic’ than them.
Listen and think about what it means to be God of gods.
Meditate oon what false god the Holy Spirit needs to throw off its throne to put Elohim back in the top spot in your heart.
