More Than You Can Bear (My Most Searched Post)

It’s amazing than in just over a month one blog post has become the most searched post of all time.


God Will Allow More Than You Can Bear (Alone)

People have found this blog through search engines using phrases like:

  • Verse that says God will not allow too much
  • God will not put more on us than we can bear
  • Why can I not seem to bear this?
  • What am I doing wrong, God said He wouldn’t give me more than I can handle?
  • More than we can bear.

…and hundreds of other such phrases.

I think this indicates to and reminds me of a few things true of the times in which we live:

  1. People are hurting.
  2. People are looking for answers.
  3. This myth is wide spread.
  4. More than ever we need to rely on Christ and His strength.
  5. With Christ all things are possible.

Please know this, God will allow times of struggle greater than YOUR ability to handle it.  He allows these times so that you might learn to fully and completely rely on Him.  Apart from Him you and I can do nothing.  When you and I learn that principle and live accordingly we will be free to experience His power, which is perfected in our weakness.

What are you facing today that you cannot handle on your own?  Are you willing to give up control and trust completely in Christ?

  1. In 2012 my husband went to prison for the third time and shortly after that I started to fall apart! I am a very hard worker and support three beautiful children on my own! I started reaching out to other people for my own comfort, started going out, and hanging around some people who would party! I have jeopardize my marriage so many times and have hurt my family with some of theses actions! I really do love my husband but I don’t know if there is any hope on us ever making our marriage work and being the happy family we used to be! He says he loves me with all his heart and he forgives me for letting him down and hurting him! But I ask myself these questions: am I the one at fault for these actions? Is there really hope tht we can get through this and be whole again?

  2. 2010 and 2011 were two of the most difficult years of my life. My eldest son, at 15, developed an addiction to drugs and went into depression. I lived in a state of constant high alert and felt as though I was losing my mind on many days.
    Thanks be to God for his faithfulness because without him, I would have definitely not made it through in one piece. I called on Him many times and He filled me with peace. I trusted Him, that He was in control and that He had me and my son in His hand.
    I learned that as Christians, we aren’t promised an easy life and storms will rage. But we ARE promised a Comforter and a healer and a Master who is in control and who will never leave our side.

  3. 1 Corinthians 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.

  4. You liken in a sense that while we have free will ……. all that happens good and bad is for God to teach us Humility and other Virtues. I do not believe that. A friend that needs to move her family into a low income apartment because she and kids were abandoned and it was a crack/meth lab? People out of work for years and all retirement and hoses gone?

    I do not understand your references. I have been faithful and diligent. I help others in more need than my family.

    I am a bit angry with God right now and need you to explain your thoughts better.

    I get on my knees and pray each day and night. What am I (we) doing wrong? Trust and faith only go so far. Then I can aome back and do it all over again? Whats your point?
