Paul said, “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
Three times Paul asked God to take something away from him. The Lord heard him the first time, second time, and third time, and the answer still was no!
There are times we want God to say yes and he says no. God knows what’s best for us, let’s learn to trust God and be satisfied with either answer!
