How do you find your legs each day? Whether in business, in the home, or in the community, how do you get your bearings before you start feeling the day’s tug? Where do you find the stability you need to live well for the long haul, including today?
Do you give your first and best moments to feeding your mind on the word of God? Do you let his voice be the first you hear? I’m not talking about religion. I’m talking about a relationship with our supernatural Creator, with whom if it’s developed nurtures a superpower in you.
When humans design something, it’s designed for a purpose. It’s designed to perform an action or excel in a specific area. If you want to pound in a nail, then that’s the purpose of a hammer. If you want to screw in a screw, then your best choice is a screwdriver.
It’s the same for people. God has designed each person to be different from all the others. When you expect everyone to fit into the same mold, the result is frustration, discord, discouragement, mediocrity, and failure. You were created to be you. You have unique abilities to be used the way they were intended. These are your superpowers, and the only way to discover them is in a relationship with our Designer.
Through your superpowers, God has equipped you to do His will. As you use them, you will start to see how He produces every good thing in your life. That does not mean everything that happens to you will be good. Humans are flawed creatures. Humans hurt each other every day. However, God has promised to make good from all the bad stuff that happens to us, as long as we love Him and are called to the purpose He gave us. That promise can be found in Romans 8:28.
God has called us to a service far beyond anything we can imagine, and that service involves serving other people. In fact, when you serve others in any way, you are actually serving God. Having a servant spirit is a byproduct of finding your legs each day by giving your first and best moments to feeding your mind on the word of God.
Another byproduct is a calm, confident, patient energy that fuels a relentless pursuit of excellence in every trial. No matter what happens, you always remember the Romans 8:28 promise. You’ll live each day joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.
It’s never too late to learn the art of service or to recognize that God’s plan is perfect. It’s never too late to develop your superpowers. Moreover, it’s never too late to help someone else discover these things.
