So do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being rewarded day by day.
2 Corinthians 4:16
There are many ways to lose heart. The one Paul is talking about is when circumstances go awry and we become deeply discouraged. It is as if the heart is taken right out of us. It seems that our life is gone. Paul is encouraging us not to lose heart in our circumstances because God can and will renew us if we turn to Him. The other way we lose heart is through apathy. It is a slower death, but death none the less. The problem here is that there is no renewing going on. No daily habits or consciousness of God to bring life back to our soul. Paul gave us the remedy for both spiritual dilemmas. He wrote, “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” It is this “fullness of life and power” that can renew us no matter how we lose our heart. Today, stop and ask the Holy Spirit to help you experience the love of Christ. Come near to Him. Let Him renew your heart.
Dear Father, renew my heart. Help me to experience the love of Christ with all its life and power.
