People will always say to the hurting some well-intended advice whether the person hurting wants it or not. We’ve all done it. I do it more times than I would like to admit.
Sometimes, Christians will give advice that isn’t exactly biblical. The one that really drives me up a wall is…
“God will never give you more than you can handle.”
I hear this on a daily basis. Maybe, even on an hourly basis. I’ll be glancing over my various social media sites, and BAM! There it is.
People, especially Christians, gobble up that line because it makes us feel better and makes us feel like we can stand strong and get through whatever the obstacles are.
But, truthfully, we will fail miserably. We won’t be able to stand through the trials.
God will DEFINITELY give us more than we can handle!
Because God just wants us to let go of all our issues and hand it all over to Him.
He loves us so much that He just wants us to come to Him all the time for every little problem. He loves us so much that He just wants to take our burdens away.
We need to stop trying to take care of everything on our own because we will fail. When we strive to be strong and handle our own problems our self, we are striving in vain.
Being strong isn’t about fixing our own problems. Being strong is about handing our problems over to God FULLY!
Our problems aren’t really just our problems, they are God’s too.
You’re probably thinking, “This lady is crazy! It’s not so easy to do this!”
You’re right! It’s not.
Take it slow. Start handing problems to God a little at a time, and, before you know it, it will get easier.
Right now, you most likely feel as if you’re drowning in problems, but each time you trust God, the water becomes more shallow until, eventually, you’re walking arm-in-arm with Jesus on a gorgeous beach.
I Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
God can’t work a miracle in your life until you completely trust Him with the good AND bad. And, dear friend, He desperately wants to work miracles in your life. He desperately wants to take great care of you.
You just have to let Him in.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
