Embrace God’s Grace.
God often uses “a thorn in our flesh” to remind us to stay humble vs. arrogant. Our thorn could be a physical ailment, a personal failure, struggle finances, communication problems, etc.
In II Cor. 12:7-10, God gave us help to embrace His grace with a “thorn in our flesh.”
1. It is okay to pray for God to remove your thorn.
2. God can choose to leave your thorn in place.
3. Focus more on, and be content with God’s grace than your thorn.
4. The power of God’s grace is activated and operational as we remain weak before God (the I can’t, but through Christ I can do all things, mentality).
Christians, God’s grace (love and undeserved favor)is over, above, and beyond what you need or expect. Embrace God’s grace.
