2 Corinthians 12:7–10 (NKJV)

7 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.

  • Why Me?
    • For My Good
    • The Thorn in the Flesh
    • Using the Enemy for My Good

8 Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.

  • A Revelation of God’s Grace
    • Pleading for Relief
    • Hearing from God
    • The Sufficiency of the Savior

Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

  • Thriving in the Thorns
    • Boasting in Infirmities?
    • Pleasure in All Kinds of Trouble?
    • The Power of Christ
    • Strength in Weakness
