The LORD God took a handful of soil and made a man. God breathed life into the man, and the man started breathing.
Genesis 2: 7
Listening to the gentle wind reminds me of what it will be like to hear the breath of God! The sound of breathing lets you know that life is there. A beating heart and the sound of air entering and exiting the lungs both continually testify to the presence of life!
Man was made in the image of God and then God breathed His breath into man! That is when Adam became a living being. So the image of God was not simply a spiritual likeness of God. God breathes and so do we! The list of likenesses is long and maybe even unending. God sees and we see. God hears and we hear. God has emotions and we certainly do as well. God walks and talks and we do to.
There is another time when the Bible tells us about the breath of God. John 20:22 says that Jesus breathed on His disciples and said “Receive the Holy Spirit.” That was after the Resurrection and Jesus was preparing them to be sent out to tell the world the Good News of Jesus!
So if you are in need of Revival in your life. If you have been deadened by the cares of this world, then ask Jesus to breathe on you today!
“Lord Jesus breathe on me as you did on the disciples after Your Resurrection. I need today the life that can only come from Your Breath! Praise Your Holy Name, now and forever. Amen.”
