Dr. Edsel Bone shared in one of his sermons a story about a man that was doing some shopping in the grocery store and his small son was closely following him. The boy was carrying a large basket and the father was loading it with one item after another. He put in canned goods, sugar, flour, meat, and a variety of vegetables. A customer who was watching began to feel sorry for youngster, thinking his load was becoming to heavy for him. Walking up behind him she said quietly, "That's a big load for such a little chap like you to carry, isn't it? The boy turned to her as if surprised by her question. Then he smiles and said, "Oh, don't worry. my dad knows how much I can carry!"
Contrary to what many of God's people think, our heavenly Father also knows our load limit and understands precisely how much each of us can endure. For every added load that seems to take us to our limit, our Heavenly Father has considered it's weight and has also offered Himself as our strength while under the load. Isn't it good to know that our Lord is alert to our individual needs and limits?
I don't about you but every now and then I have to remind myself that our Lord knows exactly what can we carry!
