HI! This is for you believers, and hopefully for you not believers. I found this vs today. Man! How humbling! I need to research just what Paul is talking about as far as disability here. Also, this is a newer translation of the Bible. I have read it in 4 other versions and it does not say it as great as the Message version. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! Also, I found it as a note in my phone. Then re read it in the Bible.
Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.”
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 MSG
Love you all!
