Pondering today on power.
What makes a person a “super hero”? Power! I think the word “power” can evoke different images to different people, both positive and negative. I think for many years I equated “power” with “control”. Control is a selfish, manipulative, dominating word but “power” is something entirely different.
The apostle Paul tells us that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in us! There is a life force within us that is able to heal, to restore, to change the course of people’s lives. We didn’t earn this power, buy this power or work for this power…it IS a part of our DNA, wired into the fabric of our being, the very essence of “you”. You were created in the image and likeness of God Himself and He breathed his life and power into you.
So what do we do with this pondering? We live as the super heroes we are! We walk into every situation and breath life! We see hurting people and we HEAL. We see lonely people and we bring TOGETHERNESS. We see depression and we bring JOY. We see fear and we bring PEACE. We see pain and we bring COMFORT. We see insecurity and we bring ACCEPTANCE. We see despair and we bring HOPE. We see confusion and we bring CLARITY. We see doubt and we bring FAITH. We see judgement and we bring GRACE.
This is who we are! God is in our DNA and we are children of light! We throw aside the temptation to “control” and instead we live a life of “POWER”!
Happy Sunday my friends! May the force be with you! 😉
