Half Truth #3: God won’t give you more than you can handle.
Flip the script: God helps us to handle the adversity and struggle we face in life.
Though we want to encourage one another in tough times, attributing struggles to God isn’t helpful or faithful. Assuming that anyone should be able to “handle” struggles is also not caring or faithful to our calling as followers of Jesus. We can, however, trust that God will never leave us or forsake us.
This is the third week in the series, “Half Truths.” Pastor Mary’s message is based on Psalm 46: 1-11, I Corinthians 10:13, and Hebrews 13: 1-8. To read it, click here. “Be Still” reminds us to rest in God’s presence.
