he knows how much you can handle!
1 Corinthians 10:13
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
Even though God gives His strength and grace to help us to endure, He knows our breaking point. He knows when enough is enough! He knows when the trial would start to work against us. He knows when our spirit would experience brokenness. He Knows how much, for how long, the trial should last.
We often feel as though we’ve reached more than we can handle and ask God to let us out, and He doesn’t. Some of us run the other way and suffer even more for not enduring what God sent our way.
God knows us better than we could ever know ourselves. He knows what we are capable of. He knows the fruit He could get from our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly stuff. He knows the glory He would receive from putting us through certain things.
It’s tough. It’s hard at times. It may even be a struggle. Take it from me, I give the honest side of truth! I have never encountered a trial that I didn’t want to run from! I have come to understand why God has taken me through certain things. My experiences, along with the help He has given to endure, are my riches! I am ‘Rich Beyond Measure’! That is the title of my latest book. In it I share a bit of my pot of gold. A ‘Pot of Gold’ earned from simply enduring hardship. I also share some of those hard things and what I have learned about God.
We will never really understand God's point of view on the events in our lives. We are charged to just place our unwavering trust in Him and follow where He leads. This doesn't happen over night. It takes all of our lives to learn a microcosm of what God has been trying to do with us, and when we reach heaven, it will all be plain. It will all make sense!
God has given us every resource we need to become spiritually wealthy. I'm busy storing up these riches. Trial after trial, hardship after hardship, victory after victory, blessing after blessing, and triumph after triumph!
Remember this, God will always make your burdens according to your strength! You are stronger than you know!
