Yes, Virginia, God DOES give us more than we can handle . . . NOT because He's a Cosmic Meanie (Lamentations 3:32-33; Psalm 103:13; Isaiah 63:9) . . .
But so we can learn (and it's a tough lesson for us haughty humans!) to STOP relying on ourselves, and that we need to rely ON HIM, 'cause it's never, ever, EVER more than HE can handle!
