THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
"Life is unfair," said one man in a conversation.
The other man asked, "How is that?"
First man, "Well, I lost my car keys at a ball game and never found them.
I lost my sunglasses at the beach and never found them.
I lost my socks in the washing machine and never found them.
I lost three pounds on a diet -- I found them and five more."
2 Cor 4:16
"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish,
yet the inward man is renewed day by day."
There are several times in our lives when we turn to God and renew our commitment to Him.
For instance, Hezekiah renewed his commitment to God when the Lord healed him from sickness.
Sometimes we renew our commitment to God when He has delivered us from a particularly difficult time in our lives.
Even Christians face times when our lives are in turmoil.
And God has blessed us with clinging faith by His Holy Spirit.
It's because of this that we "faint not" during difficult times.
Even when we have no hope in this world, we have a Hope that is beyond this world!
Because of age, we can see ourselves growing old enough to approach the time when we "perish."
Even at that thought, God has given us the secure faith that death is only a door leading to a much closer and eternal relationship with Him.
Here what our Scripture tells us today: "..the inward man is renewed day by day!"
Even though life may be difficult, we have a special promise from God.
That promise is that we can be renewed in our spiritual man EVERY day!
We can have a fresh outlook on life.
We can have an inspired purpose.
We can have a closer walk with God.
All we need to do is renew our commitment to Him!
God will do the rest.
Have you renewed your commitment to Him today?
