When I was young, a cartoon ran on Saturday mornings called the “Superfriends”. The twin super heroes would shout: “Wonder twin powers: Activate!” Their powers would then take different forms as they set out to claim victory. Imagine calling forth power and allowing it to travel in different forms on your path to victory. While superheroes may seem an element of fantasy, the ability to activate power lies in all of us.
God has planted an arsenal of abilities within each of us that enables us to see and live the life we dream about. As children, we see glimpses of this power and make people smile as it manifests. As we approach adulthood, our power diminishes when we face challenges or when we observe the power and greatness of others. As children of the kingdom, we must see our potential for power and walk therein. Prior to Jesus’s ascension, he activated the power of the Holy Spirit within his disciples and commanded them to go and use it. Have you tapped into yours?
A dear friend of mine, Moye, recently began a powerful movement of action. It began with one statement: Harness your Super Power. To date, this powerful statement is spreading across the nation rapidly. In the center of the statement is another powerful message: You are. You are powerful and magnificent. Everything you need to be successful is within you, planted there when God made the executive decision to bring you into the earth realm. You have so much power in you that you may have to seek God for ways to manage it. The most beautiful thing about your power is that it’s tailor made just for you, and doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s. Make a list of all of the things you love to do, and another list of all of the things that you wish to do. Take a deep breath, stand tall, and declare that you have the power to achieve it all. You are a super power, not because of our humanity, but because of the divine power that God has placed within you. It is our divine light that activates the power to become great. Super powers: activate!
