“I’m focused. I’m focused. I’m focused! You might see a small flame but I’m about to blaze. I’m a believer that I can do anything. There’s no power greater than the Spirit in me. I’ve got everything that I need ‘cause no defeat can beat the winner that lives in me… yeah, I’ll just keep moving forward and faster, stronger. I just keep flying further and higher, wiser…take the limits off. On your mark, get ready, set, go turbo style!”
Whether you are a competitive athlete or just a determined exerciser, this is a song that powers you up! Share it with your teens. Share it with your spouse. Share it with your friends. And don’t miss the real message. It’s not just about getting powered up -— it’s about WHO powers us up! It is the Spirit in us that gives us the power. It is God who keeps us focused on the right things. It is the Lord who helps us stay in balance as we strive to go faster and fly higher. If we want to bravely live “turbo style” we need to first acknowledge that we cannot achieve it on our own. We only can “do anything” because we serve a God for whom nothing is impossible. So what is our job? Be brave and trust! Stay focused—focused on prayer, focused on God’s Word, focused on the Almighty God and bringing glory to him. Let’s be sure that as we move forward and faster that we also become wiser. God is the one who gives wisdom. Start by seeking him and you will find true freedom to “live turbo style!”
Proverbs 2: 6-8 “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, and he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.”
Questions: Have you trained for a big race or athletic event? How did you get powered up to be ready? How did you power yourself up spiritually? Did you experience the Spirit in you providing what you needed? Do you believe that for God all things are possible? Have you personally experienced an impossible-to-possible story?
Prayer Power: Father, help me to rely on your power and wisdom and to be an example to others to power up faster, higher and wiser! It is you who creates the turbo-style power that helps us achieve what might at first seem impossible. Amen!
