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.

  1. You will experience pressure as God grows you.
  2. The pressure will not crush you to death.

Life may get hard, but in your weakness, God’s strength will always shine through. Always.
