We take courage because God is doing a great renewal work in us.
2 Corinthians 4:16 So we do not lose heart.
Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed
day by day.
Progress can seem slow at times because we do not let Holy Spirit have
full access to our hearts and minds but every day He is teaching us and
leading us and bringing us nearer to Jesus so that we can follow Him.
Our body will be the last thing to get an upgrade but our minds and
hearts are being renewed with every word of God that we assimilate.
It isn't always easy but if we live for God and let Jesus live through
us then any problems or trials that we face because of putting ourselves
in His hands will be a stepping stone to a greater future.
2 Corinthians 4:17 For this light momentary
affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all
comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen
but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are
transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
We live by faith not by sight and we see with our inner eye, the eye
of our heart, what God has planned for us and let Him prepare us for
that glorious future.
If God is for us who can prevail against us?
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
