When people say that  "God only allows as much as you can handle"  in a "trial," what verse(s) in the Bible do they frame this statement around?

1Corinthians  10:13  No temptation has taken you but what is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but with the temptation also will make a way to escape, so that you may be able to bear it.

yes, as Hippie said I Cor. 10:13 is the verse they go to.  But it isn't saying that God only allows as much as you can handle.  If that were the case, God would not need to provide a way of escape.  God always allows us to undergo more than we can handle so that we will turn to Him.   If he only allows as much as I can handle, then I handle it and He doesn't.   In short it is a misinterpretation of that verse.

The idea of a hedge around a believer is in Job 1:
9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath [is] in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

By this, I take it to mean that our trials are "father-filtered".

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:6-7
