There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful,
who will not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation also
make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.
God knows that you can stand that trial;
He would not give it to you if you could not.
It is His trust in you that explains the trials of life,
however bitter they may be.
God knows our strength and He measures it to the last inch;
and a trial was never given any may
that was greater than that man’s strength,
through God, to bear it.
~~Streams in the Desert, Vol 1, Cowman
. . . What? shall we receive good at the hand of God,
and shall we not receive evil?
In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
