God won’t give you more than you can bear

13 12 2007

This post from Steven Furtick is short but powerful and right on. How easy it is to forget this truth. I am always in over my head. Maybe as leaders of God’s church we should always be dreaming bigger than we can humanly can produce.”This is definitely one of the top five verses in the Bible.Except…it’s not actually a verse in the Bible.The actual verse states that God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. It does not imply that God won’t let you be stressed beyond what you can bear.Or challenged beyond your ability.Or pushed beyond your threshold.In reality, God gives you more than you can bear all the time.  On purpose.It’s only when you can’t bear the load that the strength of Christ kicks in…and He becomes everything you need and more.”
