"God will never put you in a situation that you can't handle." —Unknown
We hear this saying all the time. Sometimes we automatically nod our heads because it just sounds right. The problem is, it isn't true. We've all hit obstacles in our walks that aren't possible for us to pass. In fact, we can even say that God puts things in our lives that we can't take care of on purpose. If we could handle everything on our own, there would be no need for us to rely on God.
But God is able to bless (empower us with His grace) you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. —2 Corinthians 9:8. Because of God's grace, we are able to do things that we would be unable to do on our own. How does that work? Obey Him and allow Him to work through us, and we also experience it in a personal and unique way. He will energize our thoughts or the molecules in our bodies to allow us to accomplish things and choose things that we couldn't without His strength.
