To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 2 Corinthians 12
Whenever we study life of Paul, we are blessed to know about his burden for the ministry, work and vision. Though his ministry seems easy to everyone but it was hard and challenging for him. According to 2 Chor12:7 there were a thorn given to Paul in his life which is obstacles for his ministry at the same time the thorn was making him humble not proud.
Likewise we all have the similar type of thorn in our life. This is making our ministry, work and our life hard and dark. But according to 2chor12:9 God has promised “My grace is sufficient for you” God’s Grace is “the undeserved love and favor of God”. He will give grace to support us and sustain us, if we don’t have obstacles we will not understand the grace of god. If we want to be humble instead of proud we must have thorn in our life.
