Have you ever heard the saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle?” The problem with this saying is that it gives us the power. It says we can handle every situation. The truth is, God does not give us struggles but allows us to go through them so we will lean on Him. When we have more than we can handle, it forces us to go to God for help. So, how do we get through things that are more than we can handle? Lean into the Word; go to these 10 Bible verses when you need God’s strength to get through your struggles.
And friend, know that even though you are going through something, God still loves you and hears your prayers. As someone once shared with me, you go through fire and always come out the other side stronger. God uses trials and situations like a fiery forge, refining us, cleaning us, purifying us, and increasing our strength. Lean in hard to Him friend, He is with you every step of the way.
- Psalm 37:39 “But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.” He is our strength always BUT also in times of trouble.
- John 16: 33 “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”Jesus felt the tribulation of this world, but through the strength of the father, he died on a cross for us!
- Isaiah 40:29 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” The struggles of life can make us weary, but the father will give us strength and power to keep going.
- 1 Chronicles 16:11 “Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” The more we seek the beautiful face of our father, the stronger we will be. Look up and he will give you strength.
- Psalm 29:11 “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.” God’s people are those who believe and trust in him. If you follow the Lord, he will give you the strength that you need.
- Psalm 59:16 “But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” David knew even in his times of trouble that if he sang unto the Lord, he would give him strength.
- Psalm 84:5 “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.” God calls those who really on him “Blessed.” He wants us to rely on him in our times of trouble.
- Isaiah 33:2 “Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.” The bible teaches us not only to rely on our father but how to pray. Pray for strength every day.
- Luke 22:43 “An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.”Rest in peace knowing that God will send his heavenly angels to surround you with strength when you call out.
- 1 Samuel 2:4 “The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.”As your strength increases in the Lord, the enemies strength decreases and the less power he has over you.
You see, our Heavenly Father gives allows us more than we can handle just as He did Job, Daniel, and David! He allows our struggles so we can stand strong in His strength. When you are lacking in strength and wearied from the sins of this world, remember to seek His word and call upon the Lord. He will give you strength and peace.
