Good Morning December 13

We’ve often heard it said that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle, but that’s not quite true. He really does give us more than we can handle. If all of our trials and temptations were only at the level we could handle, we wouldn’t need to depend upon Him. But our trials, and struggling with sin, force us in one of two directions. We can do, as Job’s wife counseled him, “Curse God and die.” (Job 2:9) Or as Job said, “Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him.”(13:15) Life is difficult. We have many needs, pains, and pressures, some very tragic. We don’t have all the answers, many we will never have this side of eternity. But the question always is, “In whom do we trust?” Only in our own reason, ability, and strength, or in the One who loves us with an everlasting love, who truly is working in all things for our best good, and to turn our hearts more to Himself? We soon find that our strength is limited, but His never is. And His grace is sufficient. (II Corinthians 12:9)
