Why ‘God WILL give you more than you can handle’…

I remember (and re-blogged) when Kayla posted the original a year ago. A persistent thought/fear throughout my life has always been: “What will I do if I have to face something I can’t handle?” God finally provided that answer.

      “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth, as it is in Heaven,…. “lead us not into temptation”…. “deliver us from evil” .From this I believe that when GOD intervenes HE is accomplishing HIS saving work. Our GOD saves….HE does so in spectacular fashion….HE does so in subtle fashion. HE will not leave or forsake. A believer should never be blinded by his circumstances…whether good or bad. Its not about us…its about HIM!!!….in true recognition of this….we “keep our eyes fixed on JESUS” our “Living Hope”…..for NOTHING is impossible for our AMAZING GOD.
