“When the Pressure Is On “
It is easy to think about what we might do in certain situations. As a growing boy, I might have thought is if anyone wanted to fight, bring it on.
As a believing adult, I surely don’t want to get in fisticuffs. I don’t even want to get in mouth battles.
But we don’t know how we will react until that time when the pressure is done.
Please read the following verses. Mark 14:66-72
66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by. 67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him.”You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus,” she said. 68 But he denied it. “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about,” he said and went out into the entryway. 69 When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, “This fellow is one of them.” 70 Again he denied it.After a little while, those standing near said to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.” 71 He began to call down curses on himself, and he swore to them, “I don’t know this man you’re talking about.” 72 Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
If you remember this biblical account, you remember that Peter said he would die before he would deny Christ. But when the pressure was on, Peter failed.
I believe we will have when the pressure is on moments and they might be coming soon. What will we do, when the pressure is on? Make plans now and be ready for the coming pressure.
Have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
