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.
2 Cor. 12:9 (NIV)
Paul prayed three times for healing from this ailment he referred to as a thorn in his side. God didn’t remove it. God had other plans for him. How he responded to the apostle’s pleas comforts brings comfort to my heart.
The Lord tells Paul and his future readers that God’s love is so great that it allows us to be used by Him in spite of our health issues. He works through these disorders and diseases and allows great things to occur.
God uses us as we are. He takes our strengths, builds them up, uses them to His glory and to enlarge the Kingdom.
Recently, I have noticed a lessening of a lot of the pain I have experienced for two and a half years. I thank God for this. Praise the Lord.
