Good morning to you.
Paul pleaded with God to remove the thorn in his flesh. And each time God told him, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
We all face challenges in life. Regardless of the circumstances we are facing, we have to learn how to walk through them. We have to rely on God’s help, because, like Paul, we can't do it on our own. We need God’s strength.
So, when we’re facing a trial where we have our own “thorn in the flesh,” we can derive strength by admitting we can’t do it on our own and by calling out to God. As we navigate the circumstances of life it’s an opportunity for our faith to be proven genuine, as Peter reminds us in 1 Peter 1:7. It’s an opportunity for God’s strength to strengthen us so that we will be “perfect and complete, not lacking anything. ” (James 1:4).
Have a super day, knowing God is in control.
