Psalm 119 105

How has your week been? Me—I’ve been praying through some things, seeking God’s direction and wisdom. Where do you go to find those things? I have learned to lean on the Word because it informs and instructs me when I’m not sure what to do or which direction to go. Sometimes, I get confused, living this Christian life in 21st Century America. Doesn’t it seem like our cultural Christian mantras go against the grain of what Scripture teaches us? For instance, we’ve all heard it said that God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. Yet, that’s really not reflected in Scripture, is it? No, the people in Scripture often face things beyond their ability to handle. In those instances, we see them turn to God. Psalms is a great example of that. David, the major contributor to the book of Psalms, cries out repeatedly to God for help in numerous Psalms. We need God. I need Him every day. If you’re like me–and chances are you might be–than you need Him every day too. During those times, one of the places we can turn to for reliable guidance is the Word that He left to dwell among us in the form of the Bible.

    See, I always read that little snippet differently… and we talk about God not giving us more than we can handle A LOT. I always took it to mean that if it’s happening to me, I can handle it with God’s help because with that help I can handle anything. It’s only when I shut myself off to the sunlight if the Spirit that things get dark.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on my post, brother. Yes, I believe that if we abide in Him, He supplies us with what we need to do what He calls us to do. With God, nothing is impossible. I encounter people making that statement when attempting to comfort or reassure someone going through a difficult time. Truth is, I think God gives us more than we can handle on our own all the time. We yearn to be self-reliant. In reality, we need Him.

    Walking a faithful Christian life can be challenging at times. I find comfort and wisdom in the Psalms. Psalm 31:1-5 brings me much peace this morning. We all stumble as David did.
