... I could go on and on, but I think you get the point, so I will get to my point.
There is a popular saying that I used to not think twice about saying or agreeing which says-
"God won't give us more than we can handle."
The longer I live on this earth and the more I get to know God the more I realize how false that statement is, because in my own power I will buckle under the grief, pressure, stress of living in this world, but with God all things are possible.
In Isaiah 41:10 God tells us...
I am with you
Be not dismayed
I am your God
I will strengthen you
Yes, I will help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
So you see, life on this earth is hard and it is more than we can handle as human beings, but as children of God we can be more than conquerors through Him that loves us (Romans 8:37) and we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. (Philippians 4:13)
God loves us so much and He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, it may not always look exactly like we in our humanness think that it should, but we know that His ways are perfect and that He is trustworthy.
So let's trust in the Lord with all of our heart, lean not on our own understanding, in all of our ways acknowledge Him and He will make our paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
In His Strength,
P.S. I woke up this morning with this on my heart and when I logged onto Facebook I saw 2 other posts about the same thing, I love it when God does that.. here they are if you need more encouragement.
