That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.
II Corinthians 4:16 (NLT)

Paul experienced over and over again God’s “hope for the helpless.” While in prison, while shipwrecked, while being persecuted or barely having enough to eat, he knew God in a deep and personal way and determined to never give up. He writes, “Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.” Though he was weary, exhausted and many times his back was up against the wall, he was not despondent or disheartened. Instead, through the power of the Holy Spirit, deep in his soul he was emboldened, and encouraged. Christ sustained him. Every day the hope of Heaven and the love of God caused him to be renewed, strengthened and invigorated. He was full of hope. You can be too. Let the presence of Christ and the awareness of His deep love for you give you all you need for this day. Don’t give up; instead, ask God to renew you today.

Dear Father, you know how weary I can become. You know how easily I can let my circumstances influence me. I pray today, help me become conscious of Your mighty presence. Renew my heart, renew my mind, fill me with Your strength and courage. In Jesus’ name.

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.
