2 Corinthians 12:7-9
And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. 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.
-Apostle Paul was caught up in the third heavens (spiritual realm) fourteen years from the time he was writing this. A thorn in the flesh (messenger of satan) was there to torment him but he prayed to God three times that it might depart from him & God answered him.
-Only God can help us in our weaknesses & addictions through His grace; no matter how much we try by ourselves, we cannot overcome. Jesus says “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Christs grace is sufficient for all humanity & His omnipotent nature secures us from all forms of evil. When we are weak in ourselves then we are strong in His grace. Therefore, when we call on Him in our weaknesses, He restores our souls by His divine strength & grace.
Jesus Christ our Redeemer, we humbly come to You today in our weaknesses & addictions. Help us by Your divine power & grace to overcome this thorns in our flesh. Take complete control of our lives so that we may rest secure in You. Amen
