Remember Paul’s thorn in the flesh? 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. God did not take it away, He gave Paul such a revelation of what it was doing on his behalf. In verse 9 it says, “…My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness…”
Our thorny trials are intrinsically equipped with more than enough grace to carry us through.
His grace enables us to endure victoriously. It isn’t a matter of just getting by. It is an opportunity for us to see the Lord at work on our behalf in ways we have not known Him before.
Our trials give us experiential knowledge of His Presence moment by moment. It isn’t print on a page. He is with us in our trial, as much as He was with Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego. Daniel 3:12-25. King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished. In verse 25 he said, “…and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
