SORT BY Relevancy
I've always wondered what exactly was the Apostle Pauls "thorn in the flesh."'No one knows what Paul's "thorn in the flesh" was many people think they know. Many sermons have been preached speculating that it was an eye problem; it was his mother-in-law, it was a physical affliction, it was a spiritual issue. There are always good arguments for why theirs is the definitive solution to the illusive thorn mystery.
Paul only tells us this: "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure." (2 Corinthians 12:7) Even though this is a topic of great curiosity in the Christian world, I'm kind of glad we don't know.
Why? Not knowing precisely what his thorn was enables us to identify with Paul concerning the hard and mysterious place in our own life. Most of us have one. Most of us have a hardship or ailment or affliction or thorn that seems to defy prayer, fasting, confessing, and all other methods we have used to rid ourselves of it.
It was needed for Paul to assist him in humility but our own thorn may be there for another reason. The important thing is that God was in control even though Satan was the messenger who delivered it. God is in control of your thorn too. Jesus told Paul; "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." (Verse 9)
Maybe the thorn is a mystery but the lesson isn't.

Rod is an author that is a native of South Carolina. Just a few years ago in 2012, he started writing stories and decided that in spite of coming from a place where it seemed few people dared to dream big, he would fulfill his dream to be a published author. So he finished his first published novel, "The Confessions of a True Womanizer," earlier 2015 and immediately sought ways to spread the word.Rod has been featured on the talk show, "The Logan Power Show," in September 2015. He talked about his childhood coming up and how he was introduced into writing. You can find that show on Youtube.com under "Author Rod Ballard on The Logan Power Show." Rod has also been featured on plenty of Blog Talk Radio Shows--so he is no stranger to interviews. Rod is committed to fitness and living a positive life. It is his personal belief that the way you keep yourself up on the outside reflects who you are on the inside. In his spare time he enjoys reading, writing and listening to music of various styles but favors Smooth Jazz and R&B. He also commits to motivational speaking and anything that has a positive role in his life and the lives of others. Rod Ballard's future aspirations are to be a best-selling author and to see his works on movie screens.
