When Bad Things Happen
"No temptation [trial] has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able." (1 Corinthians 10:13)
There is a wonderful Bible story that describes a much greater God. Three Hebrew boys refused to worship the idol of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. Even though they were threatened with being thrown in a fiery furnace, their response was, “God can spare us from the fiery furnace; He has that power. But even if He does not spare us, we’ll never serve your gods or bow down to your statue” (Daniel 3:17–18, paraphrase). They chose to trust God even when it made no earthly sense to do so. And God repaid that faith by seeing that they were not harmed by the fires in the furnace.
God will never take us through a difficult time that is too tough for us to deal with. No matter how difficult your trials, you can bank on His promise in 1 Corinthians 10:13. He will give you a way to get through it.
