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.
God Bless You
