First of all we need to ask, Is it Biblical? I was asked by some people in our church where that idea was found in the Bible. I gave it a little thought and said, “I don’t think it is in the Bible”. Perhaps you can land at the thrust of the sentiment from Romans 8:28:
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.”
Still, I don’t like that statement. I used to, but not anymore. I think a more Biblical statement would be “God won’t give you more than *He* could handle.”
The first statement places the emphasis on us and our strength and ability to persevere. The second statement focuses on God and His strength and ability to keep us. Trials are given to us for various reasons. Some to test us, some to discipline us, but all for God’s glory. When we face hardship, our focus should not be on what “we” can handle. Instead, we must focus on what “God” can handle (which is everything!). It is far better to place your confidence in the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, sovereign Lord, than to think about what you can and can not handle (which is nothing apart from Him!).
