I’m so excited to greet you this month in our new forum, called “Commander Kellie’s Corner.” Each month, I will be bringing our Superkid family a word, thought or challenge that is relevant to you. Every article will be something either written to you or inspired by you. Sometimes, we may even give your parents or your pastors an encouragement on how to deal with you! Or maybe I should say, how to help you know who you are in Jesus.
Superkid, you are healed: You are whole in your spirit (the real you), soul (your mind, will and emotions) and your body. You are wise (James 1:5); obedient (Ephesians 6:1); full of love (1 John 4:11-17); with no fear (1 John 4:18). You are perfectly pleasing to the Father (Ephesians 1:4-5), and Jesus is working in you now to produce two important Superkid, Superhero qualities.
Philippians 2:13 (New Living Translation) says, “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” What an awesome word for you, Superkid! What else could you need to be able to do what He wants you to do, or be what He wants you to be? With those two super jets, desire and power, you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you!
At Superkid Academy, we live by a Creed—a set of decisions we’ve made about our lives based on the Word of God. Neither God’s Word nor the Creed was written to make us feel guilty or feel that we can’t do it. That’s the devil’s way of thinking.
Just think about it: Satan wants to convince you that you are going to fail if you live by God’s Word and the Creed. Good news, Superkid: You are not a failure! Remember Philippians 2? God is working in you the desire and power! Does God fail? NO! He’s working in you! So you can live your life by His Word and by the Superkid Creed!
So what is our part? Just to decide to live His way. By repeating the Creed, we are putting those decisions in our hearts just like we put the Word of God in our hearts.
Superkid, I want to challenge you today. All this month read the scriptures I’ve given you about yourself. Pick one and read it, maybe as a family—every day! You’ll begin to really know who you are in Christ Jesus. When trouble tries to come, that bold, brave Superkid spirit will rise up and know exactly how to win! I’ve seen so many Superkids do this very thing!
I want to give you something else, in case you don’t have it…The Superkid Creed. Go to superkidacademy.com and download your very own copy. Keep it before you. Read it and say it every day. Never forget, Superkid, this is who you are, not who you are trying to be! You’ve got those Superkid jet packs (desire and power) working now!
God is extraordinary, and so are you!
Until next month…STAY TUNED!
