2 Corinthians 4:16
"Therefore we do not lose heart, though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day." NIV
"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day." KJV
Even though it seems like everything is falling apart and going wrong in our lives, we can stand strong and walk on in courage. Each day we confirm our commitment to the Lord, we are being made stronger and more mature spiritually. What a wonderful assurance to us that our God keeps us from giving up, if we keep our eyes on Him.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for providing the way for us to stay strong. Forgive us for those times we become discouraged because we look at the things that are going wrong. Help us to keep our eyes on You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
