Things Jesus Didn't Say

God Will Never

Nathanael Sommers

How often have you heard "God will not give you more than you can handle"? Jesus never said it. It's not in Scripture anywhere. At its core, this phrase is a response to hardship and people’s attempts to find or give comfort. God gives us much better ways to comfort others amidst hardship.

In truth, you will be given more than you can handle. That's just life. Following Jesus does not mean that reality changes. However, following Jesus does change everything about how we face this reality.
