Let It Be the Inner man

October 6th daily blog devotional by Keith Wayne Edwards


2 Corinthians 4:16

6 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day

A young china man wanted to change the world. When he was twenty, he said, "I'm going to change the world." When he was thirty, he said, "I'd like to change Asia." when he was forty he said, "Well, I'd just like to change China." When he was fifty he said, "I'd like to change my province." When he was sixty, he said, Maybe I can just change my village." When he turned seventy, he said, "I need to change myself." How many of us have such a heart to do great things for the Lord? We have a sincere heart, but our soul hasn't been strengthened enough to do the things we want to do. We may go for a while, but ultimately we will give up and faint. Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions. The bible Say's to renew our mind, and the word of God will touch our emotions and our will becomes disciplined to do those great things for the Lord. Some of us need a spiritual rebirth, but some of us need a character rebirth. When we build our house (soul) upon the rock (Christ) we will surely stand in the winds of trials and hard times, but when we build our house (soul) upon the sand (worldly principles) then we will surely fall. Our inner man has been born again, but our flesh has to be put under subjection, and our soul has to be built upon the rock of Christ. As our inner man grows our mind, will, and emotions grow as well, and will always glorify Christ Jesus. Spiritual growth is crucial for moving into the calling that God has got for us here on earth. As our devotional life and faithfulness in our home church increase, so shall the calling and gifts' begin to increase and unfold before us. I want to encourage you today to let God's word so fill your heart. It is always internal, then external.


Lord, we ask that you fill our hearts with your beautiful word. We long to trust you Lord and have patience. You will move us, Lord, at the right time, and you will take us where we need to go in our destiny here on earth. Touch us by your spirit. Amen
