The Daily Nosh – II Corinthians 12:7
…So that I would not exalt myself, a thorn in the flesh was given to me – a messenger of Satan to torment me, so I would not exalt myself. (TLV) II Corinthians 12:7
Nosh: Pride is a corrosive and destructive force in our relationship with God. To prevent pride’s toxic effect in our lives, He may allow a humbling issue or discomfort to remain unresolved in order to protect us from an even greater danger and destruction that might otherwise result. So be comforted that He is working all things together for (our) good (Romans 8:28).
