I can do all things through Him who gives me strength- Philippians 4:13 (NIV). God is the source when dealing with any challenge in life; the wisdom that you need and the art to do something come from Him. Basically there is nothing that you cannot do and every challenge is a testimony that we are growing and this should cause a leap in our faith to embrace the challenge and deal with it.
What are we saying here? Challenges are equivalent to your abilities. This can be compared to a tithe; a tithe will never be more than a tenth of your earnings. A student may struggle with homework.A wife can have family challenges like being away from home for too long because of her second job while a farmer may have challenges with his crops getting attacked by pests. A property developer may have budget deficits of up to millions while a regular employee may have budgetary deficits of only a few hundred dollars to get through the month.
The challenges that you have are according to your capacity and capability to handle them. A poor man is worried about what he will eat for today while a man whom God has given the grace to have abundantly is concerned about how many people he will feed today. If it were possible to interchange these challenges chaos and even loss of life would occur.
Imagine if the student was given that farm full of pests, he might sell it as a way of getting rid of the problem. Then all of a sudden finds himself surrounded with money that he might end up misusing e.g. Drug abuse. This is because he was not learned to handle the challenge and lacked the necessary skills even though he had the strength and ability trapped inside of him.
What is it that is challenging you, you can handle it. Look up to God from where your help comes from. Learn from your environment; ask for guidance from other folks then you shall find the strength to take it.And above all seek wisdom and counsel from God.
God bless you!
