      Here's the blog post that sparked my question. I tend to agree with the author.

      Do you think Job could handle his circumstances?

      Not necessarily. I just dont think that the expression itself is sound.

      So it wasn't Job's strength and Job couldn't handle it without God handling it for him?
      Peter did not remain true to God at the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Did Peter's failure mean Peter could handle it, but failed or did it mean God gave Peter more than he could handle?

      Obviously Peter himself was crucified later after his ministries and Jesus himself redeemed him and asked him three times if he loved him which Peter answered yes three times. Peter was only afraid of death and thus he lied three times to save himself (which Christ prophesied to Peter), however he did pull through in the end. Judas turned away and succumbed to satans temptation freely... he resigned from ministry, betrayed his king, and hung himself in misery... deny Christ deny the Father and so without God, he could not handle it and the devil and thief in him killed him.

      By whose power did Peter pull through? By Peter's power or by God's power.

      Right God gives us strength, those two phrases are both speaking of strength from God to man
