    Can someone tell me what scripture tells us that God will not allow more burden on us than we can handle?

    One verse concerning temptation is found here:

    1 Corinthians 10:13
    There hath no temptation taken you but such as in common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
    KJV

    Psalm 55:22
    Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

    Notice here it is not "automatic". Our Lord will carry our burdens as we walk with Him and live for Him.

    Yes, this is a hard lesson that I am currently learning, that God's blessings and promises depend on my obedience. I have done alot of "asking" without enough "giving".

    Thank you

    Aj, Also remember that Paul suffered a thorn in his side and three times he ask the Lord to deliver him. The Lord's answer to Paul was, "My grace is sufficient for you..." Sometimes we must bear the bad with the good and get on with it.

    We start our day with: "This IS the day the Lord has made and I WILL be glad and rejoice in it." We have a good start and we learn to deal with each trial as it comes along, rather than anticipate trials before joy.

    Keep praying and keep running. It is a race and we are to anticipate winning.

    Cheers,

    Jim
