Pressure Build UP

Given September 25, 2006

We’ve all felt pressure in our lives. Sometime pressure comes from things we’ve committed to, from too many things we’ve said “yes” to. Pressure can come from family, work, or even church obligations and duties. We can feel pressure that comes from bad choices we’ve made. People in our lives can pressure us and, yes, we put pressure on ourselves to perform to a certain level. This pressure can build up and almost feels like it’s going to cave us in! So how do we handle it when we feel the weight of that pressure bearing down on us? You may be feeling it right now!

Might I suggest you look at it this way. In an airplane, many safeguards are in place to equalize air pressure. If the pressure outside is too great, it causes problems inside. The inside pressure has to be equalized so there's no problems. The pressure inside of you is the Holy Spirit and your faith. If the pressure outside of you is too great, it causes problems inside. You have to equalize the pressure from within.

The Bible says, "But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20". When you feel the pressures of life pressing in on you, build up your faith by praying in the Spirit. Paul told Timothy, "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee...2Timothy 1:6".

Pray in the Spirit, stir up the gift of the Holy Spirit which is in you, increase the "pressure" inside of you and the forces from outside will be overcome!
