Do you ever look at the mountain in front of you and say… “It’s too much, Lord! I can’t do this! This is just too hard!”
What do we do with these mountains that are too big for us to climb? How do we find strength to take that first step? Are we able to find joy in the mountain?
I believe God gives us too much for a reason.
Someone at church recently put it in such simple words, I just have to share what he said. He said, “Yes, God gives us things that are too hard for us. But nothing is too hard for HIM!”
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10
And that is the key, my friends.
God gives us too much for us to handle on our own strength… so that HE can come and do what we don’t have strength to do.
He wants the credit for our miracles. He wants us to lean on Him; he wants to be our hero! He wants us to realize that we have a great need for him. He wants us to realize that HE IS OUR STRENGTH! It is not anything we do on our own. It is HIM!
He wants us to look back and realize that it was He that carried us.
I had this very experience last year. God gave me too much for me to handle…
