Thought of the day:
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NKJV
Many try to use the passage as a way of saying that “God, doesn’t give us more that we can handle”. However, that’s not a true statement. Jesus told us to cast our cares on Him.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV
There are other places in Scripture that we see that we are to lean on Him. In a sense, to say that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle, is saying that we can handle anything. In Truth, it’s not us who handles anything, it’s Him through us. Only He has The Ability to take care of our problems, our needs, or situations.
He gives us Strength yes, but it’s The Strength to Trust in Him to walk us through. It’s The Strength to have Faith that He will Provide. It’s The Strength to See that He is setting us on course of Righteousness.
Here’s The Truth, He doesn’t not give us more than we can handle, He gives us the way to handle things, which is through Him. Ask Him to Help you instead of thinking you have it under control.
