Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. – 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 (NIV)

Paul gives us perspective when we face unanswered prayer. There will probably be times when our requests are not in line with God’s purpose for our lives. Paul understood this. He was pleading for God to change his circumstances, but God wanted to use the circumstances to change Paul! It reminds us that unanswered prayer may not be unanswered after all; we just don’t like the answer. When that moment arrives, may we be like Paul, who took what seemed like a setback and turned it into praise.
