Who doesn't like a superhero or wish they had access to some supernatural powers? When I was a little girl - I remember getting out in the front yard and spinning and spinning while singing Wonder Woman. I loved that show. I wanted a lasso like her's with all that power, and her invisible jet - wasn't that cool! Charles' favorite was different from mine - he had his towel cape that gave him the "ability" to fly like Superman. The powers that some of the heroes have are incredible. Can you imagine flying faster than the speed of sound? We could go see Gramma and Grampa anytime we wanted too! We could travel the world - the universe! What about that strength? The Hulk or Thor are so strong. Wolverine can heal so quickly after an attack. Stretch Armstrong can stretch and has such flexibility! The powers seem endless. Some superheroes don't have "super powers", but instead they have "super gadgets". Batman has the most amazing gadgets to help him fight crime.
We went to see the Avengers this morning - what an awesome movie - we were all impressed! All of us enjoy watching the Super Hero movies. They are always full of action and adventure.
I think we forget that we DO have access to SUPERNATURAL POWERS!
Check out these verses in II Corinthians 10, if you are wondering what I mean.
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete. II Corinthians 10:3-6
We are full of super powers that are under the careful control of the Holy Spirit equipped for VICTORY! We have everything we need to fight the battle against evil and win!
