      Do you believe the phrase, "God won't give you more than you can handle"?

      I have heard this phrase shared with a person at a number of funerals. Is this saying true?

      Apparently not, as there are plenty of people who have caved under pressure. Not unless, that is, you think that it was entirely their fault that a loved one died tragically, or that they were swindled out of their life's savings, or couldn't face up to any more surgeries, for example. Personally, I don't.

      What makes the phrase true, in your opinion?

      Does a person's failure mean that God gave them too much to handle?

      I do believe that but I cant speak for everyone, especially non believers. Personally I consider it a form of strength in bad situations and overcoming fear of death or loss or anxiety and hopelessness etc, not exactly getting what you want but wanting what you get. For example if I were terminal I wouldn't expect to just overcome the illness but to count my blessings and hold strength in God to the end to overcome the situation of fear.

      ...so...you believe that God doesn't give you more than you can handle? I'm having a hard time seeing if it was a yes or a no in how you responded.

      I believe he won't give you more than you can handle... but as for unbelievers they usually curse God for having tribulation thus strength is not with them and situations seem impossible to get a grip on or "handle"... again I see this phrase as a promise of strength and courage to endure tribulation by way of the Lord.
