You Can Handle It!
Years ago, when training for our high school football team I learned quickly that not everyone could handle the same level of weight. That's because each of us were at different stages of our development. Yet, the weight trainer was a pro at understanding how much each of us could handle. During the process of weight training I gained strength by learning how to properly handle more weight. Our trainer pushed us from time to time and knew just how much additional each of us could carry. Beloved, God is an amazing trainer and is constantly working according to His plan. Listen, He is trying to get us to the next level. The question will always be, have we committed to the process and are we staying connected to Him as we go through what seems a rough pat ch within the process? Let me encourage you beloved, He will let us strain, sweat and ache through the process at times, but know He will not you and I. Glory! 1 Corinthians 10:13 says; “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." Finally, God will keep every promise, and hence will give us strength and deliverance in every temptation if they trust in Him. As we devout ourselves to Jesus, follow Him, pray constantly for strength, and trust Him, we discover he strength in Him to overcome. Amen. Be encouraged and at peace.
