Davidisms - God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle

Recently, I was watching a TV show. The main characters said to another who was facing a desperate situation: “God won’t give you more than you can handle.”

To which his friend desperately responded, “But I don’t think I can handle this huge problem!”

The main character paused, then calmly said, “Then God won’t give it to you.”

God controls all. He knows the problems in this world. He knows what your heart can handle. That’s most likely why Satan had to ask for Jesus’s permission before he assaulted Peter’s faith in Luke 22:31-32. Jesus knew Peter could handle the trial!

Isn’t that a wonderful note of encouragement? If something comes our way, God must have not only known we can handle it, but will also give us the grace to handle it. He promised that his grace would be sufficient in all circumstances (2 Corinthians 12:9).

And if it’s too much for us to handle? Deal with it!

It won’t come our way!
