I heard this saying many years ago, but never pay no mind to it. My story hasn’t been written, but in short I do understand the saying now. It’s not just a saying, it was written in the Bible. There is many different version of the saying.
1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV, says, “no temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
To me this verse means a lot because of my trials and tribulations since 2011. I had over 20 surgical procedures for my colon, kidney and heart disease; and still increasing. I fail into depression because of the new challenges I was facing. One challenge after another, I was getting tired of fighting. I question living; my purpose; and most of all God.
I ask God, “Why me?” God simply answer back and gave me the strength to endure.
I have always known through my trials and tribulations that God lives within me. That’s why I fought with God and question God; I was just fighting with myself. When most people think of God; they think of the Father, our creature, a spiritual being in the sky controlling everything. They may have different views who God is, I understand. God to me is a singular spiritual being who lives within all of us, like the Force in Star Wars, God binds us all together. God is the one with the blue print of our lives.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declared the Lord. “Plan to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope a future.”
In Star Wars they talk about following the will of the Force. It’s God will in how things go; like the living Force lead the Jedi to become a Force ghost. It is the living God that will lead us to eternal life.
In conclusion, remember God is always with us and will only gives us what we can handle. If you are going through hard times, hang in there thing will get brighter.
