Paul asked the Lord to remove a certain thorn from his side…an issue, a hurt if you will…several times. God’s response gives us hope for our own hurts, habits and hang-ups that we are struggling with.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
It was God’s grace and strength that set me free from a long struggle with pornography. I couldn’t have done it on my own….I tried.
It was God’s grace and strength that allowed me to be set free from the resentment and anger I had towards my dad for decades and to seek a restoration in our relationship.
I could go on and on about what God’s grace and strength have done for me and yet I still need it every day, for I still suffer from loneliness, depression, anger issues, grief and a nasty habit of smoking.
If God can help me, He can most certainly help you!
When you are tempted, lonely, depressed, worried, stressed, angry, hurt or just plain tired of what life is throwing at you just call out to Him. He’ll answer!
