It's been too long.

June 13, 2014

I hear so many people say “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” Let’s think about this…if He only gave us what we could handle we wouldn’t turn to Him. We wouldn’t come to Him. We would continue in our selfishness and try and handle things our own way. (This is sin.) Yes in 1 Corinthians 10:13 He promises to show us a way out…but we cannot fall by temptation, if we cleave fast to Him….The Way…in which He already provided. “Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.” 2 Corinthians 1:9. We then read in Matthew 11:28 where Jesus says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He is speaking to the people who are carrying burdens too heavy for their own shoulders. The reason why it’s too heavy for our own shoulder is because He wants us to come to Him. We were not meant to carry it alone. Sometimes He allows problems in our lives to happen so that He becomes the Answer. Friends…stop carrying it alone, lay it down at His feet, find your rest, He bore it all on the cross. #WehaveHope #encouragement
