God is not lenient

God is merciful

There’s a huge difference!

Mercy-showing kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation.

Lenient-allowing a lot of freedom and not punishing bad behavior in a strong way : not harsh, severe, or strict.

Viewing God as lenient takes Him for granted.  
When we understand mercy-

We will grieve for what grieves Him.

We will repent instead of disregard or excuse.

We will not be able to approach Him with a sense of entitlement. 

We will be able to see His great mercy full-face! 
Even when the answer or outcome is not one we would have wanted, we can know and trust that He always knows best.

Now answer me, God, because you love me; Let me see your great mercy full-face.                              ~Psalm 69:16 MSG
