Sufficient Grace
I can't tell you how often I've turned to the story of Paul and of his thorn in the flesh.  He tells about it in Second Corinthians chapter 12.  He talks about how the Lord blessed him with visions and revelations, but to keep him from being exalted above measure this thorn in the flesh was given him.  It became an instrument of Satan to buffet him.  I think about "thorns in the flesh" that have been given to many of us.  It could be a cancer or sickness you struggle with.  It could be a family problem or even a wayward child.  It could financial in nature when you find yourself in the red instead of black and wonder how to make ends meet.  It could be you find yourself weeping till you fall asleep each night with a hurting heart.  Thorns stick deep into your heart, don't they?  Maybe you have prayed continuously as Paul for God's help, but the thorn remains.  Even if He chooses not to remove it, He promises sufficient grace.  That is grace that meets the needs where its at.  It doesn't come close or fall just short, but is perfect for the situation.  I've always found it to be true.  His grace is sufficient for every need and every situation in our lives.  What is your thorn today?  He has grace sufficient for your need.
