It seems from human experience that God allows certain temptations and sin patterns to be especially difficult for people to overcome. For one person, it might be lying. For another, gossiping. Another person might struggle mightily to avoid pornography or other forms of sexual impurity. Someone else might display their anger, even though they know it’s not healthy and they want more than anything to move beyond it. Are there times when you cry out to God and ask, “Why won’t you remove this thorn from my flesh?” We have St. Paul as an example that there are instances where God says no, He won’t take away our particular weakness, but instead calls us to rely on His grace, which Scripture assures us is “sufficient” for dealing with it.
