Our Scripture reading today is 2 Corinthians 12:7-10.
Verse 9, "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
What are you willing to endure that the power of God would be clearly seen in your life? It is one of the most challenging verses that the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to write. After asking three times for his "thorn" to be removed, he came to the conclusion that his infirmity was a blessing from God. As I read it again and again, I see it as a strong in faith statement.
Could you be looking at your current "thorn" in the wrong way? Have you continuously asked God to remove it and nothing seems to be happening? Now is the time to thank God for the trial and seek to bring Him glory through it. The weaker we are in the flesh, the stronger we will become through Jesus Christ. Now is the time to recognize His grace will be enough to carry you through another day, week, month, or however long the trial lasts. God is faithful!
