Renew Your Strength


“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. – We never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.
II Corinthians 4:8-9, 15-16 (NLT)

Do you know that you have a divine purpose? You do. God has chosen you to live for Him. He wants to live His love and passion through you. You are His ambassador. No one knew this better than the Apostle Paul. He knew he was a messenger of God to bring God’s love to those that did not know Him. And in doing this Paul suffered many physical and mental trials. But one thing was sure, he did not give up. How was Paul able to press on against insurmountable odds? Where did he get the strength to persevere? He received his strength from God. He wrote, “Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are renewed every day.” We can experience the same thing. We can come to the same God who gave Paul strength and cry out, “Lord, help me. Renew my spirit. Come and give me the strength I need to get through this time.” And He will. So today, don’t give up. Come to God and be renewed. Get your strength from Him and be about the purpose that God has called you to.

Dear Jesus, I thank You that I will never be abandoned by You. You will never let me be completely crushed or destroyed. Instead, I come today to be renewed. Renew my spirit I pray and give me strength to live for You.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
