Have you ever considered the story of Superman and his kryptonite? Have you ever dreamed of being like superman with superhuman abilities? As kids I think we have all had some sort of imagination along those lines.
But here is the thing. As a child of God, you are a superhuman being. You do have supernatural power. Jesus gave you authority and power to do everything that He did and more. (Just because we are not using it does not mean we don’t have it!) But, Superman had one weakness, it was called kryptonite. Whenever he came into contact with it he became immobilised and could not function.
As children of God we have the same problem, except that our kryptonite goes by the name “the flesh”. When we come into contact with it, we become “immobilised” or ineffective in the things that we have been born for. Just remember, that kryptonite was something that existed “outside” of Superman. Superman and kryptonite are not the same thing. Neither are you and “the flesh”.
Satan uses this thing called “your flesh” to weaken you. He does this by trying to get you to identify yourselves in your mind as being a weak, wormy, useless individual. He knows you are not, but as long you we stay in contact with those thoughts you will remain weak in your faith. However, as soon as you move your thoughts back to who you are as a child of God and remember where your strength and ability come from, your faith arises, and you become the Super Human child of the Most High that you have been born to be!
You are your Father’s child. You are not born of that which is earthly, or human. You can rise above and live above everything in this world. You lack no ability, you have more than enough power to overcome, and you are a beautiful, magnificently created spiritual being who God calls His own.
John 1:12 – 13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name–Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]
For a little fun, go and watch the Superman movie and let the Lord minister to you from it. 😊
Have a supernatural day!
