MORNINGTIME 2363
 
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE: FOR MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. Here's the short version. The Apostle Paul was given serious understanding of Who Christ was, so to keep Paul humble  Christ allowed Satan to afflict Paul with some sort of infirmity. It worked and Paul was kept Humble, so Paul was willing to go through ANYTHING, if Christ could be exalted and Paul  made small. Satan was allowed to do, something, to keep Paul Humble. It worked, and Paul WAS kept humble, for the sake of Christ. The point is, SATAN WAS ALLOWED TO.. in Paul's life, and Paul was continually reminded of just how Good Christ was in his life, ALL THE TIME. Christ IS sufficient IN ALL THINGS, to take care of all who are His. Therefore, if there is ANYTHING you need in your life to exalt Christ above anything and everything, CHRIST WILL TAKE CARE OF IT, He will do ALL the work so that you can Rest In Christ as He gets all the glory for doing whatever He is doing. It is Christ Who will provide everything to do the Job, as you provide NOTHING. And human nature being what it is, we continually must be kept low as Christ is made High. "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you". 1 Thessalonians 5:18. This is such a simple little message to lift up Christ in all things as He has already done all the Work and we get to Live and Rejoice in His Victory to, Be Blessed.
