2 Corinthians 12:8-10 King James Version

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.

This is a verse that brings me so much comfort when I am going through situations which I don't understand. I find a great deal of comfort knowing that God knows my struglles and my pains. It is my great pleasure to serve the Lord in my infirmities.

  1. This is such a wonderful passage. Sometimes it's hard to keep our eyes on the Lord when we encounter difficulties, but when we do He is such a comfort.
