Taking On Our Superpowers

English Audio Version

Recently, Marvel Comics has had an amazing run in theaters.

The cast of superheroes in the Marvel lineup is strong, courageous, and a model we can strive to emulate.

  • Ant-Man, for example. He can change size to challenge any opponent.
  • Black Panther wears a Vibranium suit impervious to any attack.
  • Captain America is immune to most diseases and heals astoundingly fast.
  • Daredevil has a “radar” sense that allows him to see what’s around him even though he is blind.
  • Hawkeye excels by his masterful use of the tools he’s been given.
  • Human Torch can control any flame within his field of vision.
  • Iron Man uses technology to be quicker and more powerful than his opponents.
  • Quicksilver runs faster than sound and can outrun gravity.
  • Silver Surfer can tap into cosmic energy and go for years without resting.
  • Spider-Man has a super-sense that alerts him to incoming dangers.

The gamut of Marvel’s superpowers includes the following and more:

  • innate abilities
  • special equipment
  • power drawn from creation, itself

What does the book of Psalms say about our Christian superpowers?

Psalm 31:23 says we have invulnerability.

“Love the Lord, all you his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.”

Psalm 28:7 says we wear an impenetrable shield.

“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.”

Psalm 138:7 says the cosmic energy of the Creator of the universe is at our disposal.

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.”

The devil isn’t in control of us. There is no weapon aimed our direction that can break through God’s protection. We are immune to the attacks of the evil one, because God is our champion.

Let’s use our fist of God’s iron and smash the devil into dust.

Excerpt of the Day

What we pack is what gives us power. Let's pack the power of God so that others may come to him in truth and in power.
