Breath is the Spirit of Life

Breath is the Spirit of Life

Have you ever put your hand in front of your mouth when you were speaking? You can actually feel your breath as you articulate each word.  Jesus said, “…It is the Spirit who gives life; the words that I speak are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63

Let’s go back to the beginning for a moment. “Then the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7 (AMP) Like giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to someone who has momentarily stopped breathing, it is the breath of God that gives us life physically and spiritually.  Don’t take it for granted!

Job 33:4

“The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

Spirit, breath, and life are all connected to the sovereignty of the Creator who holds the master plan of the ages. How many things in life do we take for granted?   What about the little pump called the heart with miles of arteries that carry the blood into every part of the body keeping the circulatory, sewer system, brain, and the complete organic system working twenty four hours a day, seven days a week?

  • Be thankful. “My help cometh from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2 Have you thanked God today for your life, breath, and strength?
  • Keep in touch with your Creator. God alone, is the giver and creator of life. Scientists can take a cell and recreate the environment in which a cell grows or multiplies, but they can’t create the living cell.
  • Enjoy your life. If you are still breathing there is a reason. Ask God everyday, “What is my assignment today?”  Take time to love.  Take time to laugh.  Take time to learn.  Take time to live.  Someone said, “Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

“For in Him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:28
