Thorns in Your Side
I was reminded of Paul’s famous account of him going before the Lord three times to have his thorn removed, but he was given the answer of “My grace is sufficient for thee.” How do we react when the God denies us the desires of our hearts? How do we change the very behaviors and thoughts that keep us before the thrown of grace? Better yet, what does “sufficient grace” really mean? We can quote it and we say it, but how do I apply the principle of “sufficient grace” in a situation when it feels like God is not addressing my need?
