No doubt you’ve probably thought that kind of a thought before, right? If you’re a human – especially an adult human – you know what it is to come to your wit’s end and wonder if you’re going to be able to handle one more thing.
But you can handle one more thing. And here’s why…
For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
~ 2 Corinthians 1:5 NLT
The more you suffer, the more God rises to the occasion and offers his comfort and consolation. His grace just keeps growing in our moments of need.
Most of us tend to forget that God’s goodness and his supply of encouragement and empowerment are literally limitless. He just doesn’t run out of comfort.
This explains how some of his followers have been able to endure such hardship and trial and have emerged on the other side with their faith and hope in tact.
What’s your limit? Only God really knows how much more you can truly handle. But this much is true – God will never be beyond his ability to give you his presence, his power, and his comfort in any moment of need in your life.
The more you suffer, the closer he gets.
