<![CDATA[2 Corinthians 12:7-10 says “So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 9 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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
Paul had a thorn in his side. This was something he wanted God to remove but after searching God three times to be healed, God said no.
This is a saying I’ve heard others say and I found myself saying, “that is the thorn in my side.” Talking about anything that is a mountain that I don’t feel like I can overcome. But God quickly convicted me on this saying. To say anything is the “thorn in my side” is automatically holding God’s hands back from blessing us.
