In this passage, Paul acknowledges that he suffered with some affliction and after discussing it with God, he boasted about his weakness. In his weakness, God was with Paul and as a result, Paul did great things. The same is true for us. God is with us when we are weak and if we trust, we will also do great things.
Questions for further thought:
1. What thorn do you have?
2. What does that thorn prevent you from doing?
Challenge: Pray that God will give you the strength to overcome your “thorn” and do the great things He has planned for you.
