“What would it be?” He asked again.
All week He had joked with her about this, each time with more persistence.
“Come on. Give.”
She thought of the dreams and visions of flying horses, of flying on horses.
She thought of the dreams of having wings. Beautiful flights over grass-covered craggy~knolls edged by the sea.
Expectantly He waited.
She thought of the dreams of being a flying time traveler or invisible. Or translucent; a ministering Angel.
Sheepishly she grinned when she remembered He knew what she was thinking. “Wings again?” was His silent thought, as He rolled His eyes, lovingly. “At least it;s not swords”, she reminded Him.
“Dream Big” He Whispered. “What is the Biggest Best Super Power Available.?” She thought hard. Better than a cape?
“You already have it” He said.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not love others, I am nothing. (NIV)
She was pretty sure she did Not have a cape. As much as she might have secretly wanted one, (and some days a rocket pack too) she would have known if either waited for her behind the shower door. Without a cape how could she possibly have a Super Power. All Disney’s Gals had capes, or masks, or….”OH! Glass or Ruby Slippers! Is that it?” she joked.
If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. (NLT)
“You already have it” He repeatedly patiently. “The Greatest Power on Earth is already yours.”
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love (others) , I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. (The Message *)
“The Greatest Super Power on Earth Lives In You.***”
SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 13:1*; 1 Corinthians 13: 2 **
“There is only Christ: He is everything and He is in everything.***” Colossians 3:11b
