Heavenly Father, what a wonderful hope we have in Christ that day by day we are being renewed in our inner man, even though we can see our outward body is growing older and deteriorating. Thank You for my present privileged position in Christ and for the glorious future destiny I have in heaven. I pray that I will not lose heart as I see my outer man decaying, but will stand strong in the faith and press on for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, as I watch for His any day return - when this mortal will put on immortality and this perishable body will be clothed in an imperishable one, for Your greater praise and glory. How I thank and praise You in Jesus’ name, AMEN.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
In all of Paul’s trials and persecutions, he focused on the spiritual. When physically he was being tested to the limit, he recognized that God was working with his inward man. Through prayer, Bible study and the gift of God’s Holy Spirit, we can be renewed daily as well. We need this daily contact with God to grow spiritually and to be able to handle the trials that come our way.

I love this. Thank you! In the pandemic that we are facing today, there is blessing as we battle every day. It may get overwhelming and sometimes frustrating but the only through it is surrendering the state we are in wholeheartedly to God. For He said in John 14:7, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”

Hello dear @SaltandLight Yes indeed! The journey to renewing our minds is a daily one. The word of God sheds light on every difficult situation. When we’re battling with what is right or wrong, all we have to do is look to the word.
We renew your minds by studying and living out God’s word. Ask Him to guide you as you delve into the word. Use resources that are available to you. Do not let the word depart out of your lips. Meditate on it day and night.
