So, what was Paul's thorn in the flesh? The theologians have debated this for 2,000 years! The truth is — we all suffer with some kind of thorn in the flesh. God permits these thorns, in His loving mercy, for many different reasons in our lives.
In the apostle Paul's case, he tells us plainly that it was permitted by God so that Paul would not be exalted above measure for the abundance of revelations that he had been permitted to experience. Dr. Kendall and many eminent scholars believe that Paul's thorn in the flesh was an evil man trying to destroy Paul's reputation because of his prior persecution of the church.
Dr. Kendall makes it clear that whatever your thorn in the flesh may be, God will use it for your good and for His glory. God's word to Paul is the same to you: "MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE." 2 Cor. 12:9
