With one hand strike my foes. With your other hand save me. Psalm 138:8
In the first part of Psalm 138, the Psalmist David, writes, “Everything in me says “Thank you!” Now, at the end of the chapter requests God to be two fisted—one to strike his foes and the other to save him. Like a superhero!
I wondered, in God’s eyes, what kind of a superher would I be? I searched “superhero” on the Internet and found a quiz, “What kind of superhero are you?” So, I took it. The results showed I am Green Lantern—a hero I’ve never heard of. I wanted to be Wonder Woman, but couldn’t take the test again without lying about who I am.
The fictional superhero Green Light has a super power ring and is famous for an oath he recites before he charges his ring: …and I shall shed my light over dark evil. For the dark things cannot stand the light, The light of the Green Lantern!
Perhaps God sees me as a green light among the darkness around me and turns me into a wonder woman when I need to stand up for what is wrong in this world.
Dear God, thank you for your super powers, especially in the light of your Son, our Savior. Amen.
