Want to be a SUPERHERO?

Posted by on January 27, 2011

Life revolves around superheros. Or so it seems. When you were a kid you always looked up to someone or something. Cartoon characters, celebrity figures, the President of The United States, or maybe your pastor or even a relative.

Our attention in this culture seems to always be shifting toward someone. But being humble and seeking to do the will of God should really be our focus. Our life destiny is crucial to the knowledge we have, where we obtained it and whether or not it will hold up under personal crisis.

We live in crisis today. How are you holding up?

Christian author, E. G. White says this:  “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine.” 2 Timothy4:3.  That time has fully come. The multitudes do not want Bible truth, because it interferes with the desires of the sinful, world-loving heart; and Satan supplies the deceptions they love.

But God will have a people upon the earth to maintain the Bible, and the Bible only, as the standard of all doctrines and the basis of all reforms. …. Satan is constantly endeavoring to attract attention to man in the place of God. He leads the people to look to bishops, to pastors, to professors of theology, as their guides, instead of searching the Scriptures to learn their duty for themselves. Then by controlling the minds of these leaders, he can influence the multitudes according to his will.”  Great Controversy Pg 570-571

As I continue to grow each day in Jesus, I become more acutely aware of how important it is for me personally to search out truth for myself.  Not adopt a theory or see if what someone else is saying makes sense and buy into that, but to truly know from God’s Word what His truth is to me and what He wants me to do about it.

I am learning that by knowing my weaknesses, I have a responsibility to grasp God’s Word and claim it as my protection. It is truly a gift that He provided for us and it is powerful. The world is an enemy of scripture. There are deceptions every step of the way. We are seduced into laziness and comfort. A time will quickly come when many of us will realize that we wasted so much time that should have been spent in grounding ourselves in the truth our maker provided us.

It is my desire to share my personal testimony. One that results in focusing on the glory and power of Jesus Christ.  Consider your purpose and your destiny and then set a plan in place to gain knowledge and wisdom by first seeking God in prayer and then opening His Word and discovering the amazing lessons He has in store for you.  After you experience the personal time with Him, share with someone what He showed you. Tell them how you are listening to Him and letting Him guide and direct your life, instead of worldly influences.

You can trust Jesus and His Word. He never lets us down. He always knows what is best for us and will see us through. After you thoroughly trust Him, you will begin to have a powerful testimony to share with others. You will be a SuperHero for Christ.

“Temptations often appear irresistible because, through neglect of prayer and the study of the Bible, the tempted one cannot readily remember God’s promises and meet Satan with the Scripture weapons. But angels are round about those who are willing to be taught in divine things; and in the time of great necessity they will bring to their remembrance the very truths which are needed. Thus “when the enemy comes in like a flood,the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”  Isaiah 59:19  Great Controversy pg 575

God is so patient with us. He loves us and provides a way for us to come to know and trust Him. Invite Him to come into your heart and start getting better acquainted today.

Blessings!
