Cheer Up the Inner You


Cheer Up the Inner You  Vol 1 No 13


Dear Friend,  

How are you doing today? I mean the “real” you – the inner you – the you known fully by God and known to others only as they observe your life and listen to you?

The Apostle Paul enjoyed using a phrase which is variously translated inner being, inner nature, inmost self, inner person. In every situation our Lord’s intent is to bless the “inner you!”

Feeling your body growing older… more aches and pain… less energy? Cheer up!  

“We do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”  2 Corinthians 4:16  So trust the Lord to uphold your heart and sustain your courage.

Finding life can be a struggle? Read up!  

“For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being.” Romans 7:22  So, discover joy in your inner person through the daily reading of God’s Word.

Looking for strength for today? Look up!

May God… “grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”  Ephesians. 3:16  So, ask the Lord to put his strength in your inner person.

Cheer up, read up, and look up. know the renewal, joy and strength of Jesus living in you!
