Do you lack confidence or feel discouraged? Remember that it's what's on the inside that makes you go up. Quit looking at yourself, or your circumstances, which can easily drag you down, and look to the One who can lift your spirit up. If you are a Christian, you have the Spirit of the Living God inside you! "The Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you" (Rom. 8:11). God is "able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us" (Eph. 3:20).
If you are deflated, ask the Lord to fill you with the Holy Spirit. He will lift up your spirit on the inside and give you the encouragement that you need (See Rom. 15:5).
Keep looking up!
