Do you have too much to bear?

People say, “God won’t give you more than you can bear.”

However, what they’re mis-remembering is this verse from 1 Corinthians 10:13: “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

Clearly, that verse refers to temptation, not pain and suffering.

When the Israelites moaned and groaned to Moses, Moses asked God a bunch of why questions:

“Why have you dealt ill with your servant?”

“Why have I not found favor in your sight that you lay the burden of all these people on me?”

“Did I conceive all these people?”

“How will I feed them all?”

And then he said, “I am not able to carry all this people alone; the burden is too heavy for me. If you will treat me like this, kill me at once, if I find favor in your sight, that I may not see my wretchedness.”

The Lord heard Moses and directed him to appoint SEVENTY elders to help him

Maybe you feel like you need SEVENTY people to help you through your situation. Or at least one or two.

Do what Moses did: Humble yourself and cry out to God.

Then allow others to help you.

God will provide through the people around you.
