“‘Remember, God will never give you more than you can handle’ People repeat this frequently; I heard it when I was growing up and I hear it now. It is meant to be a source of encouragement, and it would be if I believed it were true.
But I don’t.
I believe that God totally, absolutely, intentionally gives us more than we can handle. Because this is when we surrender to Him and He takes over, proving himself by doing the impossible in our lives…I have learned to accept it, even ask of it, this ‘more than I can handle.’ Because in these times, God shows himself victorious. He reminds me that all of this life requires more of him and less of me.
God does give us more than we can handle. Not maliciously, but intentionally, in love, that His glory may be displayed, that we may have no doubt of who is in control, that people may see his grace and faithfulness shining through our lives.”
