‘My grace is sufficient for you…’ (2 Cor. 12:9)

This verse comes in the middle of that well known passage where Paul pleads to the Lord three times to have a ‘thorn in his flesh’ removed. What this thorn was, we do not know. We assume it was something physical, but there could also have been some emotional or spiritual aspect to it also. However, the Lord reminds Paul that His grace is sufficient – and maybe this is something we all need to remember and hold on to. I expect we all have our own thorns to deal with in our everyday lives. But whatever they are and no matter what form they take, take comfort and strength from these words.
