Super heroes are good people. They stand strong on the side of all that is good and clearly proclaim the need for all of us to live on the right side of life. We all go through so many experiences in life that make us into the persons we have become. How did Superman wind up a hero instead of a villain? How did he develop such a strong sense of right and wrong?
For young Clark Kent, there were many paths he could have taken. In these fictitious stories we are led to understand the deep influence his earthly father had on his life. This man discovered young Superman as a baby and takes him home to raise him as his own son. During his youth he is guided by Jonathon and Martha Kent who instill in him a deep sense of right and wrong. Clark proceeds to grow up as a super human who is, fortunately, on the side of justice for all.
Consider if you had a son with super powers. How would he use those powers according to the way you have or would teach him?
9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, LORD;
teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
Daily study with God is a very important step in every man’s walk with God. These verses talk about how to walk in God’s path. I can’t stress enough how important it is for us to keep our minds on Christ. Daily devotions are a great way to keep our minds where they need to be. They help us to hide God’s Words in our heart so that we will better understand how God wants us to respond in the situations we find ourselves in every day.
How does a person get to the point where he understands what God is really expecting of him? We need to get to know God better. And what better way to do that than by reading His words to us?
God wants to instill in us a deep sense of His ways and path. He has placed His Holy Spirit inside of us and we are His super heroes. God wants to use His Word daily in your life to guide you to walk His path for you.
