“Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand” - Ephesians 6:13.

 

What is pressure of life? It is the natural consequence of human development. Moving from one stage of life to another provokes pressure. Pressure of life is bound to come. No one can escape it. At one point or the other, each one of us will come under pressure whether we like it or not. Life pressure is of different categories: financial, physical, marital and so on. Several people have gone through the pressure of life and today we have one or two lessons to

learn from them.

 

For instance, Abraham went through pressures mounted by his wife, and other family members as a result of his momentary delay in child bearing. Esau, while under the pressure of hunger could not think deeply on the sacredness of his birthright that he sold. Saul confronted by people’s pressure, could not consider the grave consequence of his action until Samuel appeared. Job’s wife mounted serious pressure on him to curse God and die because of the loss of their belongings and tragedies that befell them. “Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!” (Job 2:9).

 

It is not the magnitude or the type of pressure that besiege you that really matters, but your attitude under such pressures. This will determine whether you will be made or marred by it. The most common of these pressures is the work load we daily encounter.

 

If pressures are not carefully handled, they lead to depression, anxiety, stress which ultimately affect health and eventually terminate life. Whatever it is, learn to take things easy. No amount of anxiety can solve problems. Do not ever attempt to handle too many tasks at a time. Arrange them in their order of importance and urgency and handle them one after the other, beginning from the easiest.

 

Take time to think, plan and also pray very well. Remember, problems do not go by themselves, solutions have to be proffered but in seeking solution, your approach and method counts.

 

I see your pressure give way to pleasure today in Jesus’ name. God bless you!

I declare and decree; I shall not die under pressure in Jesus’ name.

 

The inherited and self-inflicted yoke of pressure on me is broken now in Jesus’ name.

 

Today, I shall not be barren of help. The stress of my life is over.
