Are you starting to feel overwhelmed? Worse news headlines every day. The infection and death numbers climbing. Investments plummeting. Cancelled events you were planning and looking forward to. The awful feeling you get inside and the thought of “what if” when you hear a family member cough. Are they all just too much to handle right now?
Did you know that God doesn’t expect you to be able to handle everything on your own? Did you know that (despite popular belief) the Bible never says God won’t give you more than you can handle? Did you know that it’s okay to be weak, to struggle, and to be overwhelmed by it all at times? And did you know that God sometimes allows us to deal with more than we can handle so that we trust him more? In those moments when we realize how weak we are, God demonstrates just how strong he is for us.
You might feel crushed and overwhelmed right now. If that’s the case, lean into God’s power. You might not be strong enough for all of this, but he certainly is. If he was strong enough to defeat our sin and conquer death, what’s happening right now is not too much for him.
His power will strengthen you.
“[God] said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ . . . When I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).
We'd love to hear from you.
