As a follow up to my last two posts, I wanted to comment on something that was said to us often in our ordeals:
“Don’t worry too much. The Lord has said he won’t give us more than we can bear.”
The problem is, He never said that. The correct reference is 1 Corinthians 10:13
“…But God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
The Lord never said that we wouldn’t face obstacles in our lives that we couldn’t overcome. I think that the vast number of Saints don’t understand this principle and are hasty to judge those in the throes of unbearable pain.
