Temptation Humbles the Believer
even because of the extraordinary character of the revelations. Therefore, so that I would not become arrogant, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to trouble me – so that I would not become arrogant.
[2 Cor 12:7 NET]
What though a thorn my bosom bears,
And varied are the wants and cares,
That mark my chequer’d way!
My God hath said, in whom I live,
“My grace is thine, and strength I give
According to thy day.”
