Thou shalt not be permitted to sink under these afflictions. Thy enemies shall not be able to prevail against thee.
The more, and the more violently, thou art afflicted and tried, being upheld by my power, and prospered in all thy labors, the more eminently will my power be seen and acknowledged.
For the weaker the instrument I use, the more the power of my grace shall be manifested.
Adam Clarke’s commentary on 2 Cor 12:9
