WORD FOCUS: YOU CAN HANDLE IT!
TEXT: 1 Cor. 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it….”
We all go through challenges, disappointments and unfair situations. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and think, “This is too much. I can’t deal with this illness. I can’t handle this difficult child.” Or, “I can’t take this traffic. It’s driving me crazy.” But, God promised He will never let us face more than we can bear. Nothing that comes your way in life is too much for you.
This is what Joseph did. He was betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a pit and spent years in prison for something he didn’t do. He didn’t get depressed. He didn’t start complaining. His attitude was, “With God, I can handle it. God is still on the throne. I’m going to stay in faith and keep being my best.” In the end, he was made second in charge over all of Egypt.
Today, if you are feeling burdened and overwhelmed by circumstances, know that with God, all things are possible. No person can keep you from your destiny, no bad break, no disappointment, no sickness. Lord, help me utilize your grace of patience, perseverance and power to endure because You always make a way of escape on trials and temptation.
Thank You my father for equipping me with everything I needed to face this day. Since I believe that with You, all things are possible; everything is well secured in Your hands working all things together for my good in Jesus’ name. Amen.
