The second lie that many Christians believe is that “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.” However, all of life is more than we can handle. The Bible instead tells us that we will go through suffering, but God will be with us through that suffering, even when our lives are falling apart (See Psalm 23:4, Psalm 46:1, Isaiah 43:2 for more). When God gives us more than what we can handle, we come to know God – 1) The sovereign God who is always in control, 2) The all powerful God who empowers us when we can find no power, 3) The loving God who can sympathize with our weaknesses. We have Jesus in us and therefore we have everything we need to face whatever that is going on in our lives. Rather than believing in the lie, we must trust that God won’t give me more than what He can handle through us.
