Nick Vujicic is a living example of 2 Corinthians 12:9—in which the Apostle Paul pleads with God three times to take away an infirmity, a “thorn in the flesh,” only to be told by God, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (New international Version, NIV)

Paul finally accepts his infirmity and says, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (NIV)

Nick’s obvious weaknesses are his lack of arms and legs from birth—a fact that could have caused some parents to abort him when he was still a fetus or reject him and hide him away in some institution as a useless, unproductive freak of nature.

But as in the life of the Apostle Paul, God is using this young man with half a body and is empowering him in a mighty way to storm the gates of hell and win many souls for Christ as seen in this video of a church service in San Diego, California, at which Nick preached.

This is a powerful and moving demonstration of the miracles and life-changing events that can happen when we allow God to use us, despite our human weaknesses, shortcomings, and failures.

I encourage you to watch the video to the end. You will be inspired and blessed.
