Bible Text: Matthew 1:18-25 |


People often say God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but, that's not true. We often are faced with challenges too big for us, to remind us to depend on God. Mary and Joseph had to depend upon God for the impossible, (Luke 1:37). We're more dependent on God that we might realize, (Acts 17:25). To keep us dependent and trusting, God provides for us one day at a time. This is hard to do because it requires us to let go of our need to control, our limited understanding, and our minimal strength. God want us to let go not just a little, but completely. Let go.
