I’ve often heard it said, “God will never give you more than you can handle”. I believe the opposite to be true. God often gives people much more than they could ever hope to handle on their own. Why? I don’t know but I suspect that it is to remind us of our powerlessness in many instances and to encourage us to seek help from others or even God Himself.
My friend, when you always say "God is in control", while you have your feet on the brake pad, you are not going anywhere! Wise up!
