44 Days Until Christmas!
We’ve all driven over those bridges that have a sign, “Load limit 5 tons.” Maybe this Christmas season, you are experiencing more stress than you think you can handle. Maybe it’s the loss of a loved one, a continuation of being socially distanced, the mounting bills associated with Christmas. You feel like a 5 ton bridge with a 10 ton truck getting ready to cross over you.
God knows what your stress limit is. He promises, “I will never allow more stress in your life than you can handle. If you get to the breaking point, I’ll be there and reinforce you.”
1 Corinthians 10:13b, “And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
In fact, I would say God will give you more than you can handle…alone. But He will never give you more than you can handle with Him.
This Christmas, don’t go without God. This Christmas, walk with God and you will find out where true joy and peace are found.
