Have you ever been overwhelmed by the challenges and pains of life? The Apostle Paul knew that feeling. He along with many in the first century (and like many today!) faced the threat of deadly persecution and other tragic life experiences. In 2 Cor. 12:1-10, Paul reminded the Corinthian believers (and us!) of the power of weakness because of the unfathomable grace of God! Somehow, God turns our thorns into victory and works some of his greatest wonders in our weakness. So, watch Him work in your life! Experience the unusual blessing of spiritual growth … as a by-product of pain.
