The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4 NIV
Sometimes, we need to catch a breath of good. It’s hard to find calm when we’re weary. When life turns us upside down and we can’t find strength, God reminds us to sit with Jesus and welcome the love of His peace.
Distractions will try and consume us. But Christ will guide our thoughts and lead us where HOPE is found. He will give us courage to stand on our own two feet and helps us breathe deeply again.
Breath is something we need to sustain us. We depend on it to survive. The breath of God is life and power. It allows us to welcome Him to live in us! When God created man from dust on the ground, He breathed life in his nostrils and became a living soul.
When we open our eyes, God is already waiting to remind us what we need. He sets the stage for good to come and provides as we faithfully TRUST. No matter what we experience in our lives, He is ALWAYS with us!
We must breathe in the good, sit in His presence and find comfort from mercy and grace. As we gratefully open our hearts to receive, God WILL provide what He has promised. But we have to be still so we will recognize the power of His strength in us.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6 ESV
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your love! Thank you for showing us how to breathe what is good, even when it’s hard. Forgive us when we forget where to find needed strength. We will begin this day in praise to You and thank you for all You provide. We will sit with Jesus while He readies us to stand on solid ground. We will love You with all of our hearts and praise Your greatness, as You help us catch our breath. YOU are the air we need! We will be still and fill ourselves full of Your everlasting love. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
