598. God Repeatedly Refused to Remove Paul's Thorn in the Flesh


"Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this,

that it should leave me." 2 Corinthians 12:8 ESV

Sometimes an earthly malady is allowed by God to accomplish

a specific kingdom purpose. Ask God to reveal to you exactly what

He wants you to learn from it, and then submit to His eternal wisdom.

Lord, You know my thorn in the flesh. I ask you to remove

it. But before it's gone, help me to learn whatever You

want me to learn from it so I won't have to keep

repeating that lesson. In Jesus Name, Amen.
