TOPIC: Renew Your Inner Man, Charge Your Faith
SCRIPTURE: For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your inner man has the responsibility of managing the adversities of life.
It is clear that we are in one of the most critical times in the history of the world. The Bible calls it perilous times, that is, strength-reducing times (2 Timothy 3:1).
Now, at a time like this, what do you do?
One of the important things to do at a time like this is the renewal of our inner man. We are to renew our inward man day-by-day. The reason is that people faint in life when the inward man is empty. It does not matter what happens around a person, if he can take care of the inward man, the inward man will take care of the outward man and the outward circumstances. It is only when you are charged that you can take charge.
Beloved, the condition of your inner man determines the welfare of your outer man.
No wonder, Proverbs 18:14 says, The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
What is the meaning of that to you? Your inner man is the first responder to the challenges of your life. Your inner man has the responsibility of managing the adversities of life. The spirit man is wired to handle challenges but when the spirit itself is broken or diseased, what is the destiny of the person?
Beloved, what you have been doing with your spirit will determine what the challenges of life will do to you.
In our world today, it is the material things that take the major bulk of people’s time and attention, but what is most important is the state of one’s spirit. So, it is important to renew the inward man day-by-day.
Now, how do you renew your inward man?
You feed it fat with the Word of God. You exercise it strong in prayer. Charge your faith with God’s word. When faith is charged, fear is discharged and the spirit takes charge.
Remember this: Your inner man has the responsibility of managing the adversities of life.
- Take out time to pray in the Spirit in order to charge your inner man.
Consistently study the Word of God and trust God for light that will light up your inner man.
Refuse to live in guilt.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to remain on fire for You. Lord, I reject lukewarmness and lethargy, in Jesus’ Name.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 97-99
QUOTE: The presence of darkness is to be blamed on the absence of light. Culled from, “THOU ART MY BATTLE AXE” by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: F.F. Bosworth once said, “People wonder why they can’t exercise active faith in God, when they feed their bodies with three hot meals a day but feed their spirit with one cold snack a week”. Many well-fed people physically are dry, asthenic and emaciated spiritually. What is the state and size of your spirit?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Fresh grace and discipline to renew the inner man is released on you today in Jesus’ Name.
