I spent the day cleaning my house. Up and down stairs I carried laundry, vacuumed, and scrubbed from top to bottom. House cleaning can be quite the workout. I found myself short of breath as I was busily moving nonstop. And then I began to think about the breath of God. Have you ever considered how awesomely powerful it is? He is creator of all things. What astounds me is how constant He is. Unchanging. Steadfast.

To think that a perfect, holy, and righteous God created me and knows me by name is humbling. I don’t deserve His love, yet he washes me in it, daily. He pours out mercy and sings songs of grace over my soul as I sleep. Because I breathe the breath He has given me, I have a responsibility to serve Him with it. Here are some thoughts I have today…

Genesis 2:7

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (N.K.J.V.)

Every breath we inhale the Father ordained, use it for something wonderful.

Job 27:3-4

As long as my breath is in me, And the breath of God in my nostrils, My lips will not speak wickedness,
Nor my tongue utter deceit. (N.K.J.V.)

Regardless of your circumstances, stand for righteousness.

Psalm 150:6

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord! (N.K.J.V.)

Live a life of praise.

I’m in awe of an unending life in Christ. His hope is sure, His glory more radiant than the mind’s eye could ever imagine.

Be mindful of your breath today, and use it to honor the Most High God…

God bless you.
