Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  2 Corinthians 12:8-9

The Apostle Paul was wrestling with an affliction, a thorn in his flesh.  It was given to him a so that others would not exalt him or place him on a pedestal for all the revelations he had obtain of Christ.  He pleaded with the Lord to take it away. But the Lord did not remove it, He wanted Paul to rely on His power to accomplish all that God had purposed for him.

I believe we all have some type of “thorn” affecting our life.  We’ve asked the Lord to remove it, take it away but the affliction won’t budge.  It’s not always about moving something out of the way. He wants us to lean in on Him and trust Him for the outcome. His power is made strong in our weakness and His grace is sufficient to meet all of our needs.

Jesus is our hope trust Him today.

My prayer for your today is that you allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you, areas in your life that the Lord wants you to trust Him for.  He is able to give your strength for the journey.

Have a blessed week!
