I’m not a fan of being under pressure. I’m an Enneagram 9, an introvert, and a rather contemplative soul. You won’t hear me bragging about how crazy-busy my life is and how I just can’t keep up with the pace. Instead, I like rhythm. And quiet. And measured progress.
But I also know that pressure is inevitable in this life. And I also know that God can and will use pressure to press me into the mold he designed for me. As Paul said…
We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed.
2 Corinthians 4:8 NIV
There are two promises about pressure for every child of God.
- You will experience pressure as God grows you.
- The pressure will not crush you to death.
Life may get hard, but in your weakness, God’s strength will always shine through. Always.
