God of Hope - Inner Nature

Hope of His Glory
Strengthening the Innerman

Some of us are a little faint hearted when we see how we fall short
of His Glory because He is a Holy God.
Also the stresses and afflictions of this present age can weigh us down too.
The following are several scriptures I have placed together from
different translations to bring out the richness because no English
translation can bring out the fullness of the original Greek.

You may call this a simple study and soak!

Seek The Lord’s presence as you read, for revelation.
And if you are not up to that for some reason – let these scriptures bring you
Into a soft touch of His Presence. He Loves You today.



Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

New American Standard Bible
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Weymouth New Testament
And do not follow the customs of the present age, but be transformed by the entire renewal of your minds, so that you may learn by experience what God's will is--that will which is good and beautiful and perfect.

Don't be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.

And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what is the will of God -- the good, and acceptable, and perfect.

********

Ephesians 4:23
To be made new in the attitude of your minds;

22 You were taught to put off your former way of life, your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;
23 to be renewed in the spirit of your minds;
24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.


New Living Translation
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.


Holman Christian Standard Bible
You are being renewed in the spirit of your minds;

And you should be made new in the spirit of your minds.

However, you were taught to have a new attitude.

and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

and be renewed in the spirit of your understanding


Weymouth New Testament
and to get yourselves renewed in the temper of your minds and clothe yourselves

Ephesians 4:24
and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Put on your new nature, created to be like God--truly righteous and holy.

Berean Study Bible
and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

you put on the new self, the one created according to God's likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.

and to clothe yourselves with the new nature, which was created according to God's image in righteousness and true holiness.

and to put on the new man who has been created in God's image--in righteousness and holiness that comes from truth.

And you should put on the new man, who has been created by God in righteousness and in the purity of the truth.

********

Colossians 3:10
And have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Putting on the New Self
9 Do not lie to one another, since you have taken off the old self with its practices, 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its creator.

New Living Translation
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

New American Standard Bible
and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him--

Holman Christian Standard Bible
and have put on the new self. You are being renewed in knowledge according to the image of your Creator.

and you've become a new person. This new person is continually renewed in knowledge to be like its Creator.

********

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.

For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

********

2 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day.

Treasures in Jars of Clay
15All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is extending to more and more people may overflow in thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day.17 For our light and temporary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that far outweighs our troubles.…

New Living Translation
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.

King James Bible
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if outwardly we are wearing out, inwardly we are being renewed each and every day.

Therefore we do not despair, but even if our physical body is wearing away, our inner person is being renewed day by day.

********

Isaiah 40:31
Those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

New Living Translation
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.

New American Standard Bible
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength;

NET Bible
But those who wait for the LORD's help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles' wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.

Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the LORD will be renewed. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and won't become weary. They will walk and won't grow tired.

********

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know …

New International Version
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints,

Then, with the eyes of your hearts enlightened, you will know the confidence that is produced by God having called you, the rich glory that is his inheritance among the saints,

Then you will have deeper insight. You will know the confidence that he calls you to have and the glorious wealth that God's people will inherit.

Weymouth New Testament
the eyes of your understanding being enlightened so that you may know what is the hope which His call to you inspires, what is the wealth of the glory of His inheritance in God's people.

********

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for who hopes for what he sees?

Future Glory
23Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved; but hopethat is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he can already see? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet see, we wait for it patiently.…

2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Treasures in Jars of Clay
17For those things that afflict us are temporary and they are producing for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 1 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding 
and eternal weight of glory;

For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory.

This light, temporary nature of our suffering is producing for us an everlasting weight of glory, far beyond any comparison.


GOD'S WORD® Translation
Our suffering is light and temporary and is producing for us an eternal glory that is greater than anything we can imagine.



1 Corinthians 2:9


International Standard Version
But as it is written, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him."

New Living Translation
That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him."
10 But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.…

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusts in him.
