What if you asked everyday , “Dear Lord, remove this from me! I can’t have this anymore as a thorn in my life!” Thorns hurt! For three times the Apostle Paul asked and received his answer. Maybe you are in that same situation… Asking God repeatedly to take something away so that you can be free and the next day arrives and still that plague is present.
“Even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
