It’s Your Breath

I just can’t help myself, I love the book of Genesis. Somewhere, Ken Ham is smiling right now. (I’m guessing, maybe, 3 of you got that joke). Any way, yes, I love the book of Genesis and I’ve read it several times. And, I’m currently studying it again now.

Most of us know that the book of Genesis begins with The Creation. “In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.” When we read the creation account we see that God literally created time, matter, and space. Everything that exists, God spoke into existence, including us.

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

There is a song by a All Sons & Daughters called “Great are You, Lord”. I have to admit, the first time I heard that song, it was instantly added to my list of favorite worship music. I loved it so much I presented it to my church’s worship team and, more or less, begged them to add it to our list of music (which they did). I’d like to share with you the words to the chorus.

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

The entire song is a nod to Ezekiel 37, but it’s that chorus that really gets me. It’s God’s breath in my lungs. What humbling imagery. The very breath that we breathe comes from God. Understanding this, this should prompt us to live a life of worship. We should desire to live a life that completely and continually glorifies our Creator.

This post is fairly short, but this was just something on my mind. When I think about the fact that is truly is God’s breath in my lung I find myself completely humbled, thankful and in awe of my Creator. Perhaps, this post will encourage you, as well, to reflect on your own walk with God.

That’s all for today.

Take care and God bless

      1. Yes I love Christ Alone also. Even when I don’t feel like worship I remember that it is His breath in my lungs so I pour my praise out to Him. After all God is worthy of all my praise
