One of my biggest fascinations lately is all the superhero shows. I love them. Why is that? Maybe because they have amazing abilities that equate to some sort of perfection where life won’t beat them up. There are no places of weakness in them that speak to flaws or inefficiencies.
I view my life there are times that my weakest moments highlight an inability to handle circumstances that try to overtake me, far from superhero abilities. It’s in these instances where the thought of being a superhero would be great. These type of shows gives examples of strength and might right in the nick of time. Here’s the reality that I must grasp…there is a superhero working in my life, Jesus Christ and I need only to tap into Him. He’s not made up or some type of fantasy, He is the living son of God.
The Word of God Word highlights that Christ Jesus shows up… in my weakest areas, He gives way to His amazing strength that carries me through. I don’t need to fantasize about being a superhero because my weaknesses give way for God to show up strong.
He is perfect and covers me in His flawless protection. Take a look below for some passages of scripture that signifies who is the superhero in my life.
2 Corinthians 12:10
For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
