Great Basin Bristlecone Pines is the oldest tree in the world. Some of them are estimated to be 3,000 to 4,000 years old.
In 1957, scientist Edmund Schulman discovered a bar of these, and named it Methuselah. This humpky and very old evergreen tree is almost 5,000 years old. This tree already existed when the Egyptians built the pyramids.
Bristlecone trees grow over the mountains of the western United States, at altitudes of approximately 3,050 to 3,350 meters. They are able to survive, even in very bad environmental conditions: extremely cold temperatures, hurricanes, thin layers of air, and low rainfall.
Actually, it is the vicious environment one of the factors so that they were able to survive until this millennium century. Tribulation has cultivated tremendous strength and inexhaustible manpower.
Apostle Paul taught us “… tribulation give produce perseverance, and endurance develops strength of character and character strengthen our hope..” Adversity is a process God uses to bring good into our lives. The problems that make us come to God can actually bring good to us. It makes us completely dependent on Him.
God uses our difficulties to make us stand the test and endure.
