I probably don't need to tell you that life is full of up's and down's.
And I'm sure you know the Lord will not allow more to come on an individual than they can handle. But people can handle alot, some more than others.
But would it not be nice to sum all life's good times and bad times into one problem.
If you could put all the trouble of your
day into one problem, that would be life changing.
Well I would like to tell you exactly that, everything you go through and face in life is based on one problem.
That problem is; when a believer does not know who they are.
Let me explain! When you got born again you recieved a new life. That life is foreign to you, you have never had this life before and for most they set out on a journey to figure out this new life, Gal. 2:20.
That is the way it should be, that is the way it was designed and we seek to know, sounds simple right.
For some of the more lighthearted type individuals they will tend to see what they can do and get away with, pushing the envelope if you will. There are those that jump in head first and are really going to be the savoir of the world, nothing stops them for a while.
Then you have a more serious type who sets themselves quietly to understand and just be good Christians, committed to every cause and very dependable.
The type of cases is endless because of our creation, our uniqueness of being one of a kind, thank God

But it does not matter your approach to Christianity, the one problem that stays with a believer until the time appointed of the Father is the same, it is a knowing, or I should say a not knowing, Gal. 4:2

2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

It is said; we are all coming from different way such as "some through the fire and some through the flood," but we are heading to the same place in understanding.
There is not 10-50 or a 100 different understandings in God, there is one.
You may express it different but it is the same understanding when Christ is revealed in you.
This may be the simplest message ever preached in the scripture, but at the same time it will be the hardest for you to understand, basically because you still think you have a life of your own.
The lie of that is, you have never had a life of your own. Even in Adam you had no life of your own, since the fall humanity has been dependant on their nature, your nature drives you.
So the only problem a person will ever have is not knowing who they are.
You don't have a money problem, or husband-wife problem, job, school, church, or sickness problem.
Solve the one problem and you solve all other problems.
How do I solve my one problem, quit fighting God, but you say "oh I love God," oh really but you hate your brother ok, 1John 2:9

9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

Your mind is going to be an opponent to the things of God until the day you die, the more spiritual you look the worse it is, Romans 8:7

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be

Just relax and allow God to be father to you, he birthed you and he knows how to be father to his own.
You be the son-dauther you were created to be and he will be the father he is, Hebrews 1:5

5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Where in the bible does it say that God will never give someone more than they can handle? It seems to me that at times this is exactly what God does so that we may learn to more fully rely on Him rather that our own efforts in problem solving.

I did not read the whole post but "I" think he was talking about ---
1 Corinthians 10:13 New International Version (NIV)
13 No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

The verse that you provided only pertains to temptation and has nothing to do with the challenges and struggles of everyday living. Of course, God does want us to learn to more fully rely on Him in facing the stress and eventually overcoming whatever may come our way.
