It’s one of those days. And I have just been reminded of a simple, yet profound, lesson.
Maybe in order to keep me from becoming proud and boastful, there is a certain thing in life that the Lord uses to keep me humble. And to certainly keep me on our knees, seeking Him.
He is all I need.
…or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ~ 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
