The Bible has a lot of amazing things hidden deep within its pages. If you look hard enough, you can find giants, epic battles, talking animals, dead people walking, fire raining from the sky, and plagues of epic proportions. As I was reading my Bible last week, I came across a verse that stopped me dead in my tracks. It was the kind of verse that gives you chills just from the sheer power and authority emanating from the words. Given that, I decided to look at some other verses that I’ve always found fascinating. The criteria for choosing these was simply to find the verses that really seemed to ooze with unbridled power and authority; the kind of verses that make you stop and marvel at our God of power, and for guys, the ones that you want to quote before rushing into battle! Without further ado, here we have 5 Bible Verse To Activate The Superhero In You.
#5. When His Wrath Is Great
Psalm 18: 6-11
In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils, And devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet. And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; He flew upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness His secret place; His canopy around Him was dark waters And thick clouds of the skies.
This passage is absolutely mind blowing. Here we see the Psalmist crying out to God in his distress, and the reaction is like a mama bear reacting to her cub crying out in pain: pure rage directed at some unfortunate someone (except with God, it’s a righteous rage). God is a powerful Father and this passage really speaks to His love for us. It is so relate-able because we’ve all been in situations where someone we love is in danger and we rush to their side, ready to tear apart anyone who comes close. This is like that; except when God talks about it, it sounds a whole lot more impressive. It’s like a mouse crying out for fear of the cat, and Optimus Prime shows up to help.
