“Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me—to keep me from exalting myself! Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:7–10, NASB95)
When the pressures of the day seem too great, look quickly to Me. This upward look opens the door in your being for My Strength, My Wisdom to flow into you and through you into the situations around you. My Grace, My spiritual Power, My Love is sufficient for you! Rest for a moment in Me – then return to your duties with My inner Peace in control. When you are the weakest, I can be strongest in you if you surrender to Me full control of each problem.
