Within the Book of Genesis starting with the first chapter, we are provided with an account of the creation of all things. God issued commands out of His mouth speaking them into existence. Genesis 2:7 indicates that man was created from the dust of ground but it was God breathing into the nostrils of man the “breath of life” that man became a living soul. If God desired to gather His spirit and breath then all flesh would die returning to dust (Job 27:3, Job 34:14-15). It is through God that we live, move, and have our being (Acts 17:18).
Jesus spoke to the storm winds commanding that “Peace be still” making the winds obeyed (Mark 4:37-41). Jesus called Lazarus forth from the cave where he laid dead (John 11:38-44). Jesus gives the Holy Ghost to the disciples by breathing on them (John 20:19-23). Through God’s breath regeneration occurs (Ephesians 2:1-5; Titus 3:3-6). “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”(2 Timothy 3:16). While Jesus was on the cross, He committed His spirit to the Father then took His last breath thus, defeating death and sin. Jesus overthrows His enemies with His breath (2 Thessalonians 2:8; Revelation 19).
God has created man in His own image. God gave us His breath and that breath is still in our nostrils. God’s breath is filled with power. If we are sustained by God’s breath, we are filled with God’s power. We possess the authority to heal the sick and raise the dead. We have the ability to speak things into existence (Romans 4:17). This is not through our power but the power that God deposits into us through His breath. Take a deep breath and acknowledge the power of God through you!
