We use physical pressure to accomplish amazing feats. We can move water uphill, cut steel like butter, and lift thousands of pounds by harnessing the power of pressure.
We can leverage personal pressure and do things that are almost superhuman. Climb snowy mountains in shorts, run 100 miles in a day, write novels, live a virtuous life, and give of our own necessity.
And then there is the power of peer pressure. Good or bad, it can influence us to act out things that are not consistent with who we are or want to be.
Every situation requires us to pick one.
And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death;Judges 16:16 KJV
