Nothing's Too Big for God!

From time to time, when people are going through various struggles, I hear or see (on Facebook) others "encourage" them, telling them that God won't give them more than they can handle.  I always read that wondering why that is what many in the world believe.  I think the scripture that this fallacy is referring to is 1 Corinthians 10:13, "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."

A few days ago, this picture came across Facebook.  It explains what the Bible teaches in a great way. Instead of the emphasis being on ME or on YOU, the emphasis is where it belongs - on GOD.  WE can't possibly handle everything we might be given - there is no way you and I could handle some things alone. Only with GOD are we able to make it through the pains and trials that may come and will come in life.  

GOD gives us the strength we need.  GOD carries us through those times.  GOD handles the tough times for us if we will allow Him to do so.  He WANTS us to rely on HIM and not on ourselves.  Perhaps that is why He is allowing us to go through a certain trial.  Maybe He's trying to show us that HE is there and we don't have to do it alone.  

The LORD give strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11
