1Cor10:13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

You know church people often say there is a quote in the bible that says that God will not give you any more than you can handle. In fact it is not in the bible. God will not give you any more temptation than you can handle (that is the quote above). I believe that it is not there because, God will and does give you more than you can handle, but I've yet to come across a situation where He cannot handle it. The most difficult times in your (and my) life is when we lean on God the hardest. The leaning from what I gather from the scriptures is what God wants. He wants to show us even in the good times he wants us to lean more. He is our DLP (designated leaning post). We used to joke about it in University, the person with the least clout in the group (socially) was the DLP and we would all lean against that person. God is willing to do that for us. Support us.

I don't think He wants to be thought of as the person with the least clout though...but from time to time we put Him in that place. Well if no one else will talk with me about this issue I guess I will have to work it out with God. EEEEEK. Been there done that, hopefully never will do it again.
