The Life-Giving Breath of God

Nov 29, 2023


“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life” (Job 33:4).

God breathed His life into us from our first moment in our mother’s womb. His breath is the essence of who He is—the source of ALL life! This was our initial connection to His abiding love and presence as His prized creation, made in His own image.

Jesus appeared among the disciples after His resurrection and breathed on them, saying, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22). This precious introduction to the Holy Spirit intertwining with the lives of the disciples was in preparation for the powerful Pentecost (the Spirit’s infilling) that was about to come. His breath of life still sustains and empowers us through the Holy Spirit living in us as Christians.

God called us out of darkness and set us apart for such a time as this—Not to sit still, but to demonstrate that Jesus IS the light of the world, and He alone, can breathe NEW life into “dry bones”! He has gifted us with talents for the work at hand, and He guides and inspires us with His Word as “all scripture is God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). We simply have to follow the Savior’s lead, full of faith, keeping one foot in front of the other. In this way, we glorify God and are enabled to do His work on this earth.

Guiding Points:

Call to Action: Be mindful this week of God’s breath. Make a conscious effort to connect with Him through prayer and scripture. Remember that every breath we take comes from God…every moment, His gift!

“As long as I have life within me, the breath of God in my nostrils” (Job 27:3).

“God, the Lord, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth” (Isaiah 42:5).

“Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person” (Genesis 2:7).

Prayer: Almighty God, thank You for Your breath of life in me. Thank You for choosing and showing me Your endless love and mercy. I want to remember that every breath in me has purpose. Let others see Your light in me. I give You all the glory, Lord! In Your precious name, I pray, Amen!

Final Thought: Let your heart be strengthened by knowing the Holy Spirit—God’s breath of life lives in you and will always be with you.
