Ever watched a superhero film and been convinced you must have superpowers you havent discovered yet? No? Oh come on, you know you have. As much as we can close our eyes and convince ourselves we can teleport from our desk to New York, we usually can feel pretty weak. In fact, the latters the more common. Weve all had moments of sheer helplessness, where its almost impossible to get out of bed because were physically/emotionally exhausted.
As hard as life can be sometimes, you can trust Him. If youre willing to step out, His power goes with you. Isaiah 40:29 NIV says: He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Thats pretty incredible encouragement! We may not have teleportation powers but this verse from Isaiah tells us that, even in our weakest moments, we have power that God will build on. It means that we dont have to live in exhaustion and weakness. God has the amazing power to take everything that wears us down, and free us from it. Hes ready and willing to help you, if youll bring it all to Him. That also goes for when youre not allowing yourself to feel weak. When youre convincing yourself that you can do it alone, youre denying God the right to carry you and strengthen you. Allow Him in, He knows what Hes doing.
So what now? Every time you see a picture of a superhero, remember the super(natural) power that goes before you and the strength that God provides.
