Psalms 6:2, KJV; Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O
LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
Ever feel like the same old sin keeps bringing you down? Ever wonder if you will
ever overcome and have a final victory? Consider Paul who prayed to God that God
would remove the "thorn" from his flesh. But God chose not to.
Instead, God allowed the thorn to remain while teaching Paul how to live a life
glorifying to God in spite of the thorn. It is not God's will that we continue in
sin, but rather than just remove the "thorn" from us; it may be His will that we
find that eventual, lasting victory in spite of it.
