Doubting self

Countless times I doubt myself,
Countless times I let it slip.
Countless times the doubts I have
Are nothing but lies.

Self confidence cannot be bought
Self confidence a valued asset
The mistakes of the past a lesson learnt
Countless times it weighs me down

Outline your strengths
Know your weaknesses
Device a plan to work it out.

Doubting myself is nothing but a lie
To keep me from reaching my goal.
I've got help, I've got all I need
His strength is made perfect in my weakness. Selah

I watched the movie Lucy a few months ago and I really liked it. I wasn't so thrilled by all the action and thrills of the movie but rather I was drawn by the message of the movie (well… what I got from it).

Lucy was an ordinary lady like me, until she got super powers from a pack of drugs she was transporting (she was a drug mule) that went burst in her. What I thought was going to kill her made her supernatural. She developed so many super powers she never even thought possible. She could hear other people's thoughts, could understand foreign languages, could fight really well and had knowledge about everything. She wasn't normal.

At the end of the movie she disappeared just like Enoch in the Bible. This got me thinking about how as Christians we should be supernatural. We have the Holyspirit living in us (pause) think about this! The Holyspirit is infinite in His abilities, He is God! Just like Lucy, we have super powers which can make us do the impossible and impact our world in ways no one can imagine. We can all live beyond our natural abilities; we have the strength and the wisdom of God available for us to tap into. Yet how come very few get to experience these powers? The answer is simple! Until we form a strong bond with Him and allow him take over our body, mind and soul we won't actualise this.

Let us therefore quit trying to be normal, let's be supernatural by forming a strong bond with God, reading His word to understand who we should be, praying to Him to help us use the supernatural powers available to us (not for selfish gains) for the expansion of his kingdom.

Remember "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13)".
