The Breath Of Life-3

January 28, 2011

At the end of the day, the breath of Life, which we also know to be the Holy Spirit is vital to our existence. As a Christian every time we clap our hands, we do so by the breath of life, every time we tap our feet, we do so by the breath of life. Every time we open our mouth to give God praise, we do so by the breath of life. And often we are so inundated with the daily pursuit of living that we forget to thank God for truly being alive in Him. We are so inundated with survival that we forget to thank God for the abundant life that He has truly given us. He did promise us this life when He told us in (St. John 10:10) “The thief cometh not but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

This abundant life is not always defined by the amount of money we make or the neighborhood we live in or the car we drive because you can have all of that through a vehicle called debt and still be unhappy. However, the abundant life is to be excited about what God is doing in our lives whether we have plenty or little. The Apostle Paul put it in the proper perspective when he said in (Phil 4:11-12) “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased (to have little) and I know how to abound (to live in plenty)… thus, by Paul’s estimation this Breath of Life is good and fulfilling regardless of our state from day to day, because ultimately God is in control of our lives.

The Breath Of Life-2

There is also a spiritual breath of life that is being manifested in the earth as well: For the apostle Paul said in (Eph 2:1) “And you hath he quickened who was dead in trespasses and sin.” Thus, the breath of life was blown upon us all when we received him as Lord and savior, and it continues to blow upon us in the midst of our trial and tribulations.

When you thought that your marriage was going to end in divorce here comes that fresh wind that gives you enough strength to believe that your marriage can be saved; when you felt like you were about to lose your mind here comes the breath of life and He’s bringing peace of mind with him. When you thought you were about to lose everything because you were down to the last dime, you had a fresh wind blow and bring with it a way of escape that you might be able to make it. It is the Breath of Life!

One songwriter said rain on us, breathe on us, shower down…send your spirit Lord; and we who are Christians need to urge the Holy Spirit to rain on us, breathe on us, shower down, send your Spirit Lord because that is the wind that we need to sustain life; that is the wind that we need to get the victory over ever circumstance and situation, that is the wind that we need to finally, one day hear him say “well done thy good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of the Lord: For it is the Breath of Life! It is the same breath that (St. John 20:22) speaks of when he says “And when Jesus had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, receive ye the Holy Ghost.” Thank God for the Breath of Life.

God Bless You

The Breath Of Life-1

Most often when we think of the breath of life we tend to think about what God did when he breathed the breath of life into Adam and he became a living soul (Gen 2:7); and we thank God for that because without that initial breath none of us would be here. However, God is still dispensing and breathing that breath of life upon us today. When we think about the victories he’s brought just in our own lives we can see the breath of life manifesting itself in a very personal way. For when God delivered you from a major illness it was the breath of life; when He delivered you from the brink of despair it was the breath of life; when He woke us up this morning it was the breath of life.

We see that same breath of life throughout the scriptures when the Lord tells Hezekiah “I am going to add 15 years to your life”; when he tells the woman with the issue of blood as she grabs a hold to his garment, “thy faith hath made thee whole”; when he tells Lazarus “Lazarus come forth and be loosed of the grave clothes, for it is the breath of life!

In fact, this breath of life is such a blessing to the body of Christ that Jesus said “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:” Thus, this breath of life means to be alive, for it is God’s gift to his creation and we should never take it for granted. That’s why he declared in the 150 book of Psalms “To let everything that hath breath praise the Lord, praise ye the Lord, and that’s the least we can do because he gave us this breath of life.

It’s hard to trust someone that’s known to be unfaithful; unfaithful being defined as not dependable; disloyal or not adhering to vows. In fact, (Prov. 25:19) says “Confidence in an unfaithful man in the time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.” If he/she is known to be unfaithful in times when there is no pressure, what is the possibility that they will be there for you when times of trouble comes. As Christians being faithful one to another is paramount. Being faithful is something we should all strive for. Being faithful says you can be depended upon, not only in good times but especially in bad.

Thus, if we tell someone we are going to do something let’s do everything we can to keep the vow we made so it can’t be said that we are unfaithful. Think of how many marriages would have been saved if the vows that were made at the altar on one of our happiest days were kept. If we look at this thing in its simplest form many who said “I Do” on their wedding day allowed the words that they promised God and all the witnesses that were there to come to nothing, because when a difficult situation arose all the vows that were spoken were broken.

And there is no doubt that when we stood at the altar we were serious about our vows; however, we are to remain faithful to those vows not only on our wedding day, but every day after. I certainly can’t speak for anyone else, but when I stood before God and said “I do” to the woman He gave me there was an expectation that she was as serious about the vows as I was. However, the hardest part when it comes to faithfulness is getting the two to become one and agree that it is until death do us part, and we may not be where we want to be right now, but we are a work in progress. Hence, at the end of the day, there are only a few people you can really depend on, that you can really have confidence in, and the hope is that one of those is your spouse.

God Bless You
