I’m not questioning you, or your understanding of the medrash. I am ultimately probably not disagreeing with you either. The reason I asked is because I wanted to see it for myself. I have been told that the statement that “Hashem never gives a person a challenge that he cannot overcome”, is not accurate. Hashem does give people challenges that they can not overcome, on their own, however, he always provides the necessary “support system” needed to overcome a challenge. Going solo, a person can fail a challenge because they are not equipped to handle the challenge alone. However, the support system needed to handle the challenge is always provided by Hashem. That is what I have heard, and it is perhaps what you mean. It is the reason I want to see the midrash inside for myself.
