Bear’s Den – Agape
People say God will not give you more than you can handle. I do not think this is true or biblical in the least. If it were, we would have no need for Christ. His promise isn’t to push our limits; he said he would never leave or forsake us. He said he would carry our burdens. He offers grace upon grace upon grace because we simply do not have what it takes.
Life isn’t about furthering self-dependence, building shrines to what we have accomplished, managed, or learned. It is always about surrender of self to Christ – his strength for my weakness, his grace for my pride, his wisdom for my foolishness.
