God Knows Our Limits
by Charles R. Swindoll

But You, O Lord, are a God 
merciful and gracious, slow to anger and 
abundant in lovingkindness and truth.
Psalm 86:15

Our Lord understands our limits. He realizes our struggles. He knows how much pressure we can take. He knows what measures of grace and mercy and strength we’ll require. He knows how we’re put together. 

Frankly, His expectations are not nearly as unrealistic as ours. 

When we don’t live up to the agenda we have set, we feel like He is going to dump a truckload of judgment on us. But that will not happen. 

So why do we fear it could?
