At times, the Lord allows weaknesses and infirmities to keep us humble by constantly
trusting Him. These particular thorns, messengers of the evil one, intend to knock us
down so that we can rely on our strength to combat them. 2 Corinthians 12:9 reads, “And
He said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in
weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of
Christ may rest upon me.” We are only strong by trusting in His grace, and grace will
carry us through. Stop fighting the battle on your own. That is Satan’s strategy. Now
when I am weak (in myself), I am strong (in Grace).
