Esther 4-6; 1 Corinthians 10

1 Corinthians 10:13 No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.

If you’ve ever been annoyed by someone telling you or overhearing someone tell another person “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle”, here’s the Scriptural basis for it.  In my more impious days I would think “Try telling that to the 50,000 people killed in an earthquake in Turkey”, but now (hopefully) more spiritually mature, I realize death sometimes may be Paul’s way out.  Our natural reaction to the diagnosis of a terminal illness may be “There’s no way out!”, but with God’s grace it’s not a trial beyond one’s strength.  It’s definitely an opportunity of testimony and growing in the love of the Lord; maybe Nietzsche was wrong in many cases, that that which kills us can make us stronger.

    You’re right. You’ve got a diagnosis, but not a death sentence. Be positive my friend…God has BIG plans for you, ya Big Goof!

    Your friend,
