I wasn’t ready for half of the things I’ve been through, but I was built for it.
“No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.” – 1 Cor. 10:13
There are so many trials and tribulations that we go through that sometimes in the middle of them we feel as if we can never make it through. We have even faced battles that if we were told about it before we got into it we would have run from it, but God knows not only what we can handle. More importantly He knows what He will handle.
Many fights are not even meant for us to fight, but just for us to see God working in our lives. The other thing is that God has created us for the battles we face. We think we can make it through, but God not only will shows us we can make it through; He will show us how we can be victorious. So, the next time you find yourself in a battle remember God has already equipped you for this.
