God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle

Review Pastor Craig’s points to remember what stuck out to you from the message.

Why would God allow you to have more than you can handle?

  • Depend on His presence.
    Jonah 2:2,7
    Psalm 145:18
    "Never let the presence of a storm cause you to doubt the presence of God."

  • Experience His power.
    2 Corinthians 12:9-10
    "Are you sailing or rowing?"
    "Until God is all you have — you’ll never realize that He’s all you need."
    Romans 8:26,28

Discussion Questions

Start with an icebreaker question to get everyone talking. Then choose questions that will work well with your group.

  • Let’s brag for a minute. How much can you handle? Share a typical multi-tasking scenario you handle on a regular basis?
  • What’s the most terrible spiritual advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • What’s consuming most of your energy right now?
  • When you’re overwhelmed, you’re most likely to: double your efforts, eat something tasty, ask for help, go somewhere peaceful, or do something fun?
  • What habits can you create in order to make God’s presence the first place you go when you’re overwhelmed?
  • What specific weakness do you need to embrace to fully experience the power of God?
  • How does it make you feel to think about laying something down that you care a lot about?
  • How have you experienced the presence of God when you had more than you could handle?
  • What do you think God is asking you to let Him carry?

From the Source

To introduce some different perspectives into the conversation, consider reading one of these verses together.

Matthew 11:28-30 Exodus 3:11-12 1 Peter 5:7 Matthew 6:27 Judges 6:15-16 Philippians 4:13

Live It Out

End each week with a challenge to take action. Lead your group to help each person identify their next steps.

  • What’s overwhelming you? Ask the group to help you determine whether to put it down, hand it off, or give it to God.
  • Read this seven-day Bible Plan about how to handle worry:
  • Make your own list of Scriptures to read when you feel like you have more than you can handle.

God Never Said That

Those "words of wisdom" can be deceiving. Don’t get swept away by things God never said.
