FAQ: Why do I feel overwhelmed when God says He won’t give me more than I can handle?

A lot of people wanted to hear an answer to this question and unfortunately it’s a short one because the question has an incorrect assumption. A lot of people think that God won’t give us more than we can handle, but the Bible never says that. The Bible says that God will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear. He will always give us a way out from temptation. But, God actually often will allow us to have more than we can handle so we can learn to depend on Him. That’s why we need God. If I never felt overwhelmed or stressed, I wouldn’t feel like I had much need to depend on God for daily living. So feeling overwhelmed isn’t good.  But let it drive you to full reliance on Jesus.
