Because of the surpassing greatness and extraordinary nature of the revelations [which I received from God], for this reason, to keep me from thinking of myself as important, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan, to torment and harass meto keep me from exalting myself!
— 2 Corinthians 12:7 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, I know You can use anything — seen or unseen — to put me in my place or lead me to a deeper understanding of Your sovereignty. Forgive me for limiting Your work in the past by making assumptions that may not be true. I thought my faith made me immune to demonic attack, but if You allowed this — even ordained it — in Paul's life then there's nothing to prevent You using it in mine. I submit to Your plan, Lord, so please use whatever is necessary to humble me before You and cause me to be faithful and develop me into a useful servant for your work in the world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
