Plain and simple, we can often do more then we think we can! I have watched this happen over and over in my life. Out of nowhere a person does the un-thinkable because someone else thought they could.
I love everything about this photo, because it pictures a man getting ready to bench press 200 pounds with many of his own brothers pulling the best out of him. I doubt very much that left to his own, this man would have ever given this kind of effort, or been able to push this hard.
Well, the truth of the matter is this, everyday of your life, your God cheers you on and believes you can do way more then you think you can. So, when you think you have reached the end of your rope, picture your God standing over you, mouth wide open, expressing these words, "We can do this, don't drop out or bail out!"
You got more, because he empowers you!
