David’s breakthrough: The Philistines defeated

And when the Philistines had gone up into Baalperazim, David smote them there (David struck them down there), and said, God hath parted mine enemies by mine hand, as waters be parted. And therefore the name of that place was called Baalperazim, (that is, the Lord of the Breakthrough); (WYC)

Faith + hope = Patience

We wait for our future glory. So we are waiting for God to finish making us his children.
Romans 8:24-25 [read Romans 8:18-30 (24-25)]
We were saved to have this hope. If we can see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People don’t hope for something they already have. 25 But we are hoping for something we don’t have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently. (ERV)
KJV: For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

KJV: For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

God Knows What You Can Handle

1 Corinthians 10:13 [read 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 (13)]
Every test that comes upon you is normal for human beings. But God is faithful: he won’t let you be tested beyond your ability. Along with the testing, he will provide the way of escape, so that you can bear it. (NTFE)
KJV: 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.

The Lord knows how to deliver

2 Peter 2:9 [read 2 Peter 2:4-11 (9)]
Since all of this is true, then the Lord knows how to save godly people and keep them safe in times of testing. But he also knows how to keep ungodly people under guard until the day they will be judged and punished. (RAD)
KJV: The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Yes, dear one, God knows what you can handle. So hold on; never give up. Wait for God, because your breakthrough is coming. Thank you for taking the time to read this Bible snack. I urge you to make full use of it. Blessings to you and your loved ones— Tim. ☺
