7/30/17-Living in the Midst of Thorns

“Living in the Midst of Thorns.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

Your Thorn(s)…….

•   Your thorn(s) is any AFFLICTION in your life that could produce self-pity and bitterness, IF YOU allow it.
>It is not INCONSISTENT in the Christian life to be lifted up to the third heaven in one moment and experience the thorn in the next.

•   Your thorn(s) can be used by God for His glory and your great BLESSING, IF YOU allow Him to do so.
>God ALWAYS has a valuable lesson for you in the midst of your thorn.
>God always PROMISES His presence, power and strength.

The Good of your thorn……

•   It keeps you from being PROUD.
•   It drives you to PRAY.
•   It makes you depend on God’s GRACE, presence and power—no matter what!
•   It allows you to offer a sacrifice of PRAISE.
•   It allows the POWER of God to work in your life.
•   It allows God to use you to MINISTER to others.
