“God won’t give you more than you can handle…”
Odd, I can’t seem to find that verse.
I’m guessing Job would take exception to that cliche.
So would Joseph.
Paul did.
“We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself…” II Corinthians 1:8
Why would God allow him to experience hurt more than he could handle? Read on. “…so that we might not rely on ourselves but on God.” II Corinthians 1:9
Truth? Cancer is more than you can handle.
So is infidelity.
So is caregiving.
So is rejection.
So is death
and loss
and grief
and prodigal children
and 101 other life struggles.
God doesn’t expect YOU to handle it.
He expects you to hand it over to HIM.
He doesn’t want you relying on your strength, but on His.
If we keep walking around thinking
“God won’t give me more than I can handle,”
we’re setting ourselves up for
heavenly disappointment.
Good news? He beckons for your burdens,
“Cast your cares upon Me…” I Peter 5:7
You will never know relief until you do.
For this hard place, I have Jesus!
