And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me (2 Cor 12:7), The whole point here again is that we are not self-promoting …exalted more than we should be in our own abundance and we get ‘the big head’ about who we are, what we do and what we have…but that we are kept on an even keel and that we grow and mature in great wisdom as we are blessed; and that when we are exalted, it is not through the arrogance and self-promotion of our own works which frequently fail, but the incomparable work of God! It is when we humble ourselves that He exalts us!
