2 Corinthians 4:16 “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.“

We will not get through life without hardships, heartaches, trials, and troubles, yet we have a hope and a promise.  First of all God is with us and will not forsake us: “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Not only is God with us every step of the way, but God renews our strength daily. “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Some time God gives us the strength to soar over the problem, other times He gives us endurance to run the race before us. But some troubles are so hard, we have to rely on God to give us the strength to put one foot in front of the other.

May you feel God with you in your trials. May you be renewed and strengthened  in your spirit  as you lean on God.
