7.” I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9)NIV
Just like Paul had a thorn in his flesh and pleaded with God to take it out , you too may be dealing with a thorn and pleading for God to take it away. You keep making mistakes, and you feel hopeless. You feel like you keep letting God down, but let me encourage you my brother, my sister for just a moment; GET UP, DUST YOURSELF OFF, AND MOVE FORWARD IN JESUS NAME! keep moving forward in the love of Jesus Christ because no matter what your weakness is and how much Satan tries to get in your ear to torment you you’re still STRONG! 2 Corinthians 12:10 declares “That is why, for Christ’s sake, i delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when i am weak, then i am strong.” THERE IT IS! Even though you’re in the midst of battling in a area of weakness, YOU’RE STILL STRONG! Satan may think he’s doing something by tormenting you and striking those weak areas in your life, but I’m here to tell you just like Jesus told Paul “Jesus grace is sufficient for you, and his power is made perfect in weakness.” You’re going to overcome that weak area in your life, whatever it may be, not because of your own strength, but because of the grace of God. God’s grace is enough to cover that weak area, his grace is enough to see you through and to help you get over that hurdle!
Speaking of hurdles, let me give you a quick revelation!
I’ve never seen a track star get up and run off the track after they’ve fallen over a hurdle. instead they take notice of the miscalculated jump, and they learn from it, so that next time they’ll have enough momentum to hop over the next hurdle successfully. So in the same manner i ignite a fire in you to get up and hop over your hurdle. Yea you may have fallen but get up, dust yourself off and get enough momentum. You can do this. Greater is HE that is in YOU. You’re VICTORIOUS!
