Young Solomon, his father the former King David, was now King. God, appearing in a dream, asked the young man what he wanted. His request, “Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” (1 Kings 3:5-14 ESV). God granted his wish. Like a super-power his wisdom was (is) legendary.


If you could, in your own circumstance, what would you ask for?


I would ask for a super-power of peace. Not peace like ‘the absence of war,’ not like, ‘everyone just getting along,’ not like, ‘co-existing.’ …

I want the ability to speak or touch, or shoot beams from my eyes to bring a peace of heart to others.

A peace like, ‘so confident in who they are in God’s eyes that the search for self-worth through vices has no value,’
A peace like, ‘hope in the face of turmoil,’
A peace like, ‘a knowing, deep in their being that they are loved regardless of failures,’
A peace like, ‘they are so filled with love that they cannot help but love others with abandon.’

Yes, this would be my super-power request from God. One that stings the evil enemy at its cold black heart in the throws of spiritual battle, removes the cloak of solitude, suffering, and self-wallowing and raises God’s children into the place of honor, power, love, and peace that He longs for us.

On this I pray.
