God does not expect us to be perfect all the time. He knows that we will make slips and mistakes. What God has promised to give you--it will be given to you. The promises that God has for you will not be taken away because of how you act. This does not mean that you should not repent of your shortcomings. You should deal with the shortcomings through the prayer of confession and repentance. Just because we are walking in grace does not give permission to sin. That is what Paul stated in Romans 8:26-28; Romans 6:1-2. Many of the promises of God depend upon Himself and not you. Your part is to patiently endure the things of this world. Hebrews 6:15. You must remember that God is in control. He does not want you to be slothful--Hebrews 6:12.
