A physical sufficiency by spiritual means

Matt. 4:4 But he answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

2 Cor. 12:7 a thorn was given me in the flesh...But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

I can't help but think these two passages have a common teaching in that: though we experience physical pains, either hunger or ailment, God provides a sufficiency for the physical deficiency by spiritual means. How is this accomplished? Faith in his providence that it is for my good?

And his grace is sufficient for me to what? Live with the physical pain?
