Bible: 2 Corinthians 12:7-9

12:7 even because of the extraordinary character of the revelations. Therefore, 1  so that I would not become arrogant, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to trouble 2  me – so that I would not become arrogant. 3  12:8 I asked the Lord three times about this, that it would depart from me. 12:9 But 4  he said to me, “My grace is enough 5  for you, for my 6  power is made perfect 7  in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly 8  about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in 9  me.
