“I have breathed life into you, says the Spirit. Breathe deeply now and say…The Spirit of Life is upon me. I shall not be short of breath, nor short of any provision, for the Holy Spirit gives me life and a breath of fresh air!”
…He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things (Acts 17:25).
When God made Adam, he didn’t come to life until God breathed into him (see Gen. 2:7). Breath gives life, both spiritually and physically. Health experts say that there are certain health benefits to clear and proper breathing. In addition to other important lifestyle changes, some reports have said that deep and proper breathing techniques can reduce high blood pressure by increasing oxygen in the blood. Many who have suffered from things such as allergies, asthma, and similar conditions that affect the ability to take clear and deep breaths know how a lack of good breathing can reduce the quality of life. When God breathed into Adam, it gave him physical life. Then later, Jesus breathed on His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit which gave them spiritual life (see John 20:22). Acts 17:25 says that God gives both life and breath and provision for all things.
Take a deep breath today and let the life of God fill your lungs and your soul. Even if your breathing has been hindered by a physical condition, do so by faith and declare that because God is the author of life you can breathe deeply. Let each deep breath cause you to see yourself drinking in the life of God, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Receive a Holy Spirit breath of fresh air!
Father, I know all life and breath comes from You. I take a deep breath now and say that the Holy Spirit of Life is upon me and I shall not be short of breath, either physically or spiritually, and all things are provided for me! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
