This Jumps Out at Me:
2Corinthians 12: 7-10
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.
Paul was the greatest emissary of all for Christ, and yet he faced tribulation after tribulation. In response to Paul asking for the tribulations to be removed, Jesus tells him "My grace is sufficient for thee... God is telling Paul: I'm not going to remove the problem, I'm going to strengthen you to handle the problem. Jesus is with us always, even unto the end of the age. Just as He didn't keep Daniel out of the lion's den, but rather, He went into the lion's den with Daniel. As we go through life, we want to tell ourselves, "I got this". We try to rely on our own strength to handle our problems, rather than admitting that we are too weak to handle it, and having faith that Jesus truly does "got this".
