    God's grace is absolutely sufficient for us. Our strength is made perfect in weakness. We should commit this passage to memory so that we use it daily for internal spiritual and soul support. Reaffirm ourselves in the Word of God throughout the day for perfecting our souls.
  • Preach
    Positioning ourselves as low or weak in a humble state. This is how we gain a spiritual advantage.Grace signifies the good-will of God towards us, and that is enough to enlighten and enliven us, sufficient to strengthen and comfort in all afflictions and distresses. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. One the prays to God in Word or thought is trusting the power of Christ to supply.

    I thought that verse 2 was referring to a man that, went to heaven, interacted with God then was brought back. My question is was he dead or not which Paul not knowing whether he was in or out of his body would seem to indicate.
  • Teri
    The person taken up was Paul, he experienced a vision or supernatural out of body experience 14 years previous. He did not know how to put it into words or would not speak about it. We know Paul had an eye condition which may be the thorn in the flesh he mentions and this may have happened on the road to Damascus.

    When the Lord wants to tell you something He will. No surprise how He does it. I have been shown many things thru out of body and dreams years ago. I went thru hell in trails thru my life because if it. Lonely, yet solid He made me as a rock for His Kingdom.

    2 Pet. 3:13 speaks about a new heaven and a new earth. A time when the heavens would be cleaned ( Satan was not yet cast out) , and the Earth would be restored to be like Eden. Maybe it is talking about when Heaven and Earth are under Jesus Christ's authority. From the Bible reading in its entirety, I don't see evidence of a literal 3rd heaven. ( Where's 2nd heaven?) So probably a metaphor ....

    When I was in school, my favorite time was recess. But some continued to study while I played. That's how it could be in the faith world. Many are satisfied with the promise of heaven while the few can only be satisfied by being in the presence and service of God. Is the third heaven where those like Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah go?
  • Patty Tozi
    GOD'S LOVE FOR HIS CHILDREN WILL SHINE FOREVER. ON YOUR KNEES PRAY FOR HIS LOVE AND COMPASSION. READ PSALM 23--. HE IS HERE FOR YOU. NEVER WILL HE LEAVE YOU. LIKE JESUS HIS SON, HE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU..LOOK UP AND SEEK HIM HIGH IN THE HEAVENS. YOU WILL FEEL HIS LIGHT SURROUNDING YOU!!! PRAISE HIM:
  • Gary Olsen
    Many of us glory in rewards. For those who live a righteous life, that is what heaven is all about. But there are the few who glory in service. And they, too, may have their reward.
  • Gary Olsen
    If heaven is tiered to individual achievements in faith and understanding, how many of us would be on the top floor? Probably very few.
  • Gary Olsen
    Who knows what the third heaven of verse 2 is really about. Could it have something to do with the varying levels of faith of individuals. If Paul is our standard, how many of us could ever hope to achieve his level of faith. Or does it have to do with our different levels of understanding. How many of us could claim to understand as much as Paul did.
  • Gary Olsen
    12:1 It is not expedient (suitable) for me (to act in self-interest) doubtless (in my certainty of the truth in what I believe) to glory (be filled or act with pride). I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord (God will show me how weak and foolish I am - verse 5, 6).
  • Apostle Donald Thompson
    The onset of 2 Corinthians 12 is indicative of Zephaniah 3:9 Ephesians 6:18 = Jude 1:20
  • Ed cook (hec)
    The writer,a man, shows us how to deal with adversity,physical short comings and success as a Christian. We can overcome! We can do all things thru Christ who strengthens us.
  • K Patrick Gibson
    I am sure that Jehovah God the creator is drawing me near.....I am finaly understanding the writings of Pauls....:)

    We all go through trials, but we must continue to trust God through it all.
  • John
    what we take in cannot kill but what comes out of a mans mouth that can kill according to verse 4 of this text.i pray for a positve words to always full in our mouth in jesus name amen

    psalm 19;7 THE LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT, CONVERTING THE SOUL; THE TESTIMONIE OF THE LORD IS SURE, MAKING WISE THE SIMPLE.
  • Lilian
    God's grace is sufficient enough and his strength is perfect for our weaknesses. Jesus is our life without him we are nothing
  • A disciple
    BSP; This is the Ideal, that the one generation would so know the LORD and walk with Him REALLY, so as to have to give to their children. This puts a very grave responsibility upon the father and mother to be more than "name only" Christians, or that they should merely try to fulfill an outward surface level obligation for Church Membership; and that they would actually KNOW what they teach.
  • BSP
    Verse 14: This verse shows that children should not be expected to provide their parents with a life of ease. Parent should be balanced in what they expect from their children.
  • Wayne
    Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God. Beloved, now are we the sons of God.
  • J
    Where's the ones that have trusted in the creation of God? FORGOTTEN.
  • J
    Looks like this lady trusted in the lies of Satan, the mixtures of men.
  • Paul
    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
  • Wayne
    The thorn in the flesh, he says, was the messenger of Satan. To buffet him. So he wouldn't lift himself up to be noticed. Christ must always be our object, as Christians.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Verse 7. The thorn in Pauls flesh was People, plain and simple. Shalom.
  • Joe
    Stephanie - I believe the man he's referencing is himself. Read the verses that follow 5 thru 10. These all clearly seem to point to Paul himself.
  • Stephanie
    I'm being led to believe that the man he's referencing, not saying whether he was in body or spirit, being caught up to the 3rd heaven, was actually Enoch
  • Lilian
    For God is love and we are saved by his grace. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us, his resurrection, his ascencion and the Holy Spirit. God loves us and he will never leave us nor forsake us. We must obey his words and listen to his words for his words are powerful like a sword. Our faith comes only be hearing God 's words. to meditate his words day and night are more powerful than the prayer. Jesus loves you and he is always guiding us to the Living water. I love you Jesus Amen
