The old adage, “No, God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.” isn’t quite correct. A recent scripture was tossed in my face that made me think twice. Many thanks to http://www.theanonymousjesus.wordpress.com for reminding me of a scripture and having me take a deeper look into this. The scripture he supplied me with was out of II Corinthians in Chapter 1 verses 1-8. Let us take a look!
“We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers.” – 2 Corithians 1:8-11
I didn’t want to sound like a baby most of my life but it just seemed that I was always under constant pressure from one arena to the next. Every season of my life something new was pressurizing me but I figured it for the good, which it is, but we should remember to be loving towards those who seem to be struggling at certain moments.
The next time we have a pressurizing feeling we should take a step to our left and let God handle the situation and just enjoy the ride. I know this is very simply said vs being done so let us be patient with one another in the things we endure.
