In the book of Luke chapter 1 verse 46, the magnificent prayer of Mary, the mother of Jesus, is recorded.

 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great thing for me—holy is his name.

Mary testified that her spirit rejoiced in the Lord because He had been mindful of her humble state. What is being highlighted here is that God is very aware of our frame. He know the attitudes of our hearts. He knows our strength in handling things of the spirit. He knows our weakness, our limitations and our fears. 

Knowing all our parameters, the Lord calibrates to the appropriate pressure and tension that we are exposed to.

Mary herself was about to be plunged into a very dangerous time where she potentially could have been accused of impropriety but the Lord was mindful of her state and measured that she had the fortitude to withstand the pressure of the destiny that she had been chosen to undertake; being the  mother of Jesus.

In the same way God knows what roles in His kingdom we are able to handle, He also knows how much temptation we can bear and his deep knowledge of our strengths and weaknesses  is how the Lord measures the pressure that is allowed to be placed on us. As it says in 1 Corinthians verse 13:

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

Praise the Lord who knows us so well and who makes "all things work together for good  to them that  love God, to them who are called according to His purposes." - Romans 8 verse 28.

Bless the Lord our God.
