I just wrote an article & set it to be published a few days ago but I am going to reiterate here what I was trying to convey. This is a condensed version of the prior article.
I made a playlist of songs by a few artist I enjoy and the first 3 songs blended into one message for me personally.
Those songs were:
- Foo Fighters “Times Like These”
- Scott Stapp “Crash’
- Scott Stapp “Reach Out”
(The original article had the lyrics in it. Songs posted at bottom of this article)
My thoughts – just like The Apostle Paul prayed for that thorn in his flesh to be removed & came to the realization that sometimes God says, “No.”
Thorns, giants, monsters, dragons and more are all there for a reason.
If I face them alone I’ll be devoured if I trust on my God, who allows them to be there, He will fight them & make me humble & stronger having gone thru the battle.
The Apostle Paul wrote – … to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud.
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”
So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:6-10 NLT
