What is your level of pain?
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 ”even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
In the medical world, you may see this statement in clinics and hospitals: “You have the right to pain management.” In the spiritual world, we better understand that pain management in life is a gift…it is the sufficiency of God’s grace.
