We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed – 2 Corinthians 4:8 (NIV)
They will soar on wings like eagles – Isaiah 40: 31(NIV)
A fluid (gas or liquid) that has high pressure with low velocity can change to have low pressure with high velocity; that basically is Bernoulli’s Principle. This principle is seen in many different ways in our world, from wings and vortex circles to fluids moving through pipes and hoses.
In the workings of this principle I see a connection with our lives as Christians. When there is high pressure and low movement this resembles the times when we are in test and trials of our faith. When we are having problems it is seems like everything around us slows down or even stops. Though the pressure on us is great it just seems that the test and trials take so long. The bright spot here is that they do come to an end. When the pressure on us decreases we go faster making up for lost time. God moves us quickly to our next assignment in life and we have accelerated growth in the Spirit of God. These “low pressure periods” will “LIFT” as though we are on wings of eagles.
∞There is always pressure either high or low and we are always moving fast or slow; so Father thanks for the leading and that You are always surrounding us.
