Living The Extraordinary Life Part I
2nd Corinthians 12:9
“You may have an issue but your issue doesn’t have to have dominion over you!”
In 2nd Corinthians, Paul is writing and explaining to the church at Corinth his authenticity as a true apostle of Christ. The church at Corinth had been infiltrated by “false apostles” these men were claiming to be apostles of Christ but trying to discredit Paul in the process. Paul’s primary goal in this letter was to defend his ministry and call the church at Corinth to reconcile themselves back to one another. He does all of this from a doctrinal perspective, he kept in line with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
In versus 9 of chapter 12, we see Paul’s answer to a prayer that he prayed not once but three times. It is believed that the number three represents divine completeness. That means he prayed perfectly. Have you ever felt like you have prayed the perfect prayer and still didn’t get the answer you were hoping for? That’s exactly where Paul found himself in this moment. He states in verse 7 he was given a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan and he prayed a divine complete prayer and God’s answer was “My grace is sufficient for you”. Here Paul is this great man of God with the ability to heal others but finds he cannot heal or rid himself of this thorn.
