Life · Praise

how to breathe…

Seeking Him as the Bread of Life
led to me praising Him…
as the Breath of Life…

He gives us life…
by His breath…

—then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life,
and the man became a living creature.
Genesis 2:7 ESV
 
A song of praise puts this truth into perspective…
 
You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
And great are You, Lord
 
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
 
—All Sons & Daughters, Great Are You Lord
 
This particular song… started me considering… just how we are to use our breath to praise Him only… after all it is His breath…
 
Today… I discovered instructions on how to breathe…
and I found it in His Word…
 
Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV
 
If we would truly live our lives…
according to His will…
rejoicing…
praying…
giving thanks…
there would be no room for doing anything else with our breath…!
 
All would be for His glory…
 
All would lead to a life of praise…
breath spent on Him… only…
