PRESSURE COOKER

If the pressures of life has you about to “blow”, know that you’re not alone.  (WARNING:  Don’t let the devil win.)  He will whisper in your ear to withdraw and get away from it all – “don’t go to church, don’t spend time with GOD, don’t talk to a good friend about what is going on.”  The more the devil can get you to retreat into a hole the greater the advantage he has on your life.

Break through the “pressure” barrier and press on.  The closer you get to God the more He will lighten your load.  I’m a living witness.  I don’t have any life or death issues in my life right now, but I do have a dirty house, two toddlers, a full time job, volunteer work in the church, bills, unexpected bills, dreams, goals, visions, desires, etc.  I was real tempted to retreat Wednesday night and not go to church, but instead I “pressed” my way to church.  Guess what?  I was EXTREMELY blessed and the weight was lifted from my shoulders.

Don’t run away from God; run to HIM.  He is waiting to take the pressure off.

1 Corinthians 10:13

New Living Translation (NLT)

13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
