”Because HE Himself was tested by what HE suffered, HE is able to help those who are being tested.” Hebrews 2:18.
Ron Write: Have you ever heard of a vessel called a bathyscaphe? Well, It is two-person submarine-like apparatus designed to probe the depths of the ocean. It is an armor-plated bubble equipped on the inside with oxygen, dials, gauges, and levers to operate arms and lights on the exterior. On a recent mission, it descended into the Pacific Ocean with two scientists aboard determined to probe depths never before entered by humans. Of course, The goal was to determine whether life could exist in a world without light i.e. underwater deep; a world where surrounding water pressure was so great that it would crush a human being like a sparrow under an Hummer front tire.
Thus the tiny vessel bumped on the bottom of the ocean miles below the surface. The scientists on board flicked on the exterior lights and then gasped. Wow! They discovered life-abundant and amazing life of all kinds. The question is “How could such fragile creatures survive where water pressure was so massive?” The answer is obvious: ..the pressure inside each of those creatures discovered is equal to the pressure outside.
NOTE: We face all kinds of pressures in life, but, when Christ lives in us, the pressure in us will be “equal to or greater than” the task-circumstances-pressure surrounding us. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Shalom!
