Group 1 Crew’s song “What He Said” definitely touches my heartstrings. There are situations in life when we are completely dumbfounded that we are in certain seasons. Sometimes these forlorn moments occur so quickly after it seems we have had a little time to rest, or after a moments of extreme awesome “highs” from great things happening. The adage that God won’t give you more than you can bear has truth, but the reality is that as we continue to grow in our walk, get older, and learn more we will encounter bigger and harder trials in life. These situations will require us to go deeper than we have ever done before and to lean on the Lord for the strength we need to overcome.
We can’t do life on our own. Life on our own is hopeless. Life on our own is more than we can handle.
GOD IS BIGGER AND ALL POWERFUL!
(he’s got this)
1 Corinthians 10:13 says, ” No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it…” which I believe is the sentiment of the song “What He Said.”
Yep, that’s what HE said, Michael Scott!
There are going to be times when we are allowed to experience more than we have ever dealt with and it is purposed. In order to grow, we have to be stretched. It’s same thing we do with a new pair of jeans or shoes. We have to stretch them out for them to be a good fit. God is constantly doing this with us.
So, stretch away Lord!
