“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting
away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”
2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)
Have you ever been to the bed side of someone dying from a dreadful disease? It is easy to lose heart when we begin to waste away. Skin and bones, unable to take nourishment, our body finally gives in. But there is another form of wasting away. It is the wasting away of the soul. The inward person, who we really are, in despair, confusion and helplessness. This is truly tragic. Our body is but a temple for who we really are and all that God intends us to be. And so, even though we waste away physically, Paul reminds us that it is crucial that we don’t lose heart. Instead we are to renew ourself inwardly day by day. Today, spend time with God, meditate on His word, let His promises soak deep into your soul and replenish your heart.
Father, I need You to renew my heart. Replenish my soul with Your word and Your love. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit I pray.
