Renew Yourself I Daily Walk Devotion

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t get bombarded with products that will make me look and feel younger. All of them are a breakthrough discovery, and all of them promise to renew you. In reality, our human body is slowly deteriorating, and there is little we can do to stop it. Sorry to be blunt but the science doesn’t lie. Instead, you should be looking to renew yourself daily through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:16

“Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day.”

Stand the Test of Time

When Paul writes this letter, he is near the end of his life. He has endured a lot of pain and suffering, and he has come to the realization that these human bodies don’t stand up well. He refers to your aging body as a ragged tent. What is also understood is that while the outer person is being destroyed your inner person is renewed every day. You don’t have to let your heart, mind, and spirit fade away. You can experience the renewal that comes from the Word and the Spirit.

Do it Every day

What does it mean to renew yourself? Well, there are several areas this topic covers. Lamentations tells us that the mercy of God is new every morning. Romans 12:2 shows us that your mind can be renewed. You can also go from a hard or dry heart to one that is a spring of Living Water. (John 7:38) Maybe you need renewal because we are being poured out for the work of the ministry. (Phil 2:17) Running on an empty tank is a danger for every servant. Whatever the reason, it is available to you. Each day fill yourself with the Word so your mind won’t be corroded by the images we see every day.

Readily Available

Renewal is readily available to every believer who seeks it out. Determine what is causing the need for renewal (i.e., sin, unforgiveness, bitterness, or fatigue) and ask Jesus to renew you. You don’t have to remain the way you are right now. Your body may be falling apart, but your spirit can be renewed. Take those steps today to renew yourself.
