“The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Job 33:4 NASB
God is BREATHING!
Breathing is defined as: the passage of air into and out of the lungs to supply the body with oxygen
Can you feel it? Moving through your nostrils, and filling your lungs? The rise and fall of your chest?
Each breath being given by none other than the Lord God Almighty! Our Master and Maker! Breathing in and out of us His breath… the breath of life!
Whether you choose to believe it or not, you continue to breath because of God. Our Creator chooses to continue to let the breath of life reside within you. However, this will not always be the case. Hebrews 9:27 tells us this:
“And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment” NASB
As much as it pains me to say this one day I will die. The breath of life will leave my body, and who I am here on this earth now will be no more. It is at that moment that my new life begins. I will breath my first breath of life with my Creator, and live on in glory with my Heavenly Father forever more!
I will live on because I have chosen to live out this verse:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21
I have given my life over, let go of my own agenda and taken up His plan… His purpose… His will for my life.
How about you?
Will you live on in glory breathing the breath of eternal life?
Or will you perish… forevermore… separated from the One and Only God who loved you enough to die in your place?
Father, today You see me for not only who I am, but for who I can be in You. Thank You for taking Your perfect, pure and eternal breath and allowing it to flow in and out of me. I am so unworthy! Lord forgive me for holding Your breath.
You have told us in Matthew 7, that small is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to life. Only a few will find it. Lord it is up to us, Your children to breath the breath of life upon those around us. WE MUST BE ACTIVELY SEEKING TO REVEAL YOUR GOODNESS, YOUR TRUTH, YOUR OFFER OF EVERLASTING LIFE TO A WORLD WHO IS ACTIVELY SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL THEM. Lord may we offer them the breath of the Living and Breathing God… the very One Who knitted them together in their mother’s womb.
May we not rest until we have carried Your breath to the ends of the earth. Seeking to sow seeds that You may produce a bountiful harvest. For it’s in Jesus name and the breath given to us by You that I pray for all these things, amen.
