If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
To be invisible? To fly? Perhaps to see into the future, have x-ray vision, be a magnetic force, teleport, fly, walk through walls, or be able to produce a force field around you or others? We marvel at the frictional tales of ordinary people who discover that within them lies a superpower, a power given them to do good. A gift that grants them strength to defend, protect, reunite, and, well pretty much have the day!
Ever wish you had a superpower?
What a different life you would lead. You would never feel defeated again. You could transform from powerless to powerful in the blink of an eye. You could conquer professional foes of personal demons. Wouldn’t it be incredible to be this formidable?
However, each of us has our Kryptonite.
We hide behind the mask of some invincible character we’ve created. One who attempts to withstand the pressure and evil forces of the world today. We project a force field around us that is generated by nothing more than human resolve. We put on a brave face in the heat of the battle only to patch the cracks in our armor when we get home alone. We know we’re not winning the war but try to survive each conflict.
But try though we may, we are but fallible, vulnerable, mortal, and weak.
The enemy probes for a weakness….our Achilles heel…and when discovered, our foe strikes, leaving us helpless, and drain of our strength. Our feats of strength are long forgotten in the dust of defeat.
So again, if you could choose one superpower, what would it be? Would it surprise you to know you already have one? Within the soul of every child of God lies a power, that when unleashed, will make them a force to be reckoned with. This power has placed in us a cache of eight super abilities, that if accessed, empower us to stand firm against any troubling circumstance or villainous foe. As a Christian, you have these superpowers!
Are you using them? More important than the question: “If you could have a superpower, which one would you choose?” should be a simpler question, “Are you using the superpowers God has given you?”
If so, yesterday you could have moved mountains
Made the impossible possible!
Today you could be conquering fear, anxiety, evil, confusion, temptation, and more!
C’mon! You know you’re immortal, right? Then why are you living in defeat here on earth? It time to suit up, friend!
It’s a bird, It’s a plane! No, it’s you, looking battle-ready in faith, truth, righteousness, goodness, peace, knowledge, and the word of God.
Stand tall, let the cape blowing in the winds of our time, and live up to your superhuman name…OVERCOMER!
