“God will never put more on you than you can handle.”
I’ve heard this statement all my life.
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
In fact, the Bible often teaches us an exact opposite truth from this statement.
2 Corinthians 1:8-10 says,
We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt 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. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us,
I’ve met a lot of Christians that think there’s something wrong with them because they feel that God’s put more on them than they can handle.
