Sunday Mini-Sermon

"God won't give you more than you can handle..." Odd, I can't seem to find that verse.

I'm guessing Job would take exception to that cliche. So would Joseph. Paul did. Why would God allow him, and us, to experience hurt more than we can handle? Read on.
"We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.." (2 Corinthians 1:8–9)

Why would God allow this?

" that we might not rely on ourselves but on God."

Truth? Cancer is more than you can handle. So is death and loss and
grief and infidelity and 101 other life struggles. God doesn't expect YOU to handle it. He expects you to hand it over to HIM. He doesn't want you relying on your strength, but on His.

If we keep walking around thinking "God won't give me more than I can handle," we're setting
ourselves up for a heavenly misunderstanding.

Good news? He beckons for your burdens, "Cast your cares upon Me..." You will never know relief until you do.
