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.
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?
