He Breathed His Spirit It Into You

Romans 8:11- “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you”.

We know by reading the Bible that God breathed life into Adam and we can see that life in us as we take every breath.  God crafted Adam from the dust of the Earth in His own image but Adam was still nothing but mere dirt until God breathed the breath of life into Him making Him a living, walking, intelligent, spirit-filled being.

We as mankind walk around breathing everyday as an afterthought often not realizing that we are actually inhaling and exhaling  the very essence and life force of God that He chose to endow us with. 

It blows me away when I sit back and ponder the very thought that every breath that I breathe today is a result of  the first interaction that God had with our father Adam and if sin had never entered the picture we would be wholly, different beings than we are today. 

We would be perfect in every way, discerning all things, realizing all of the power that God delivered to us when He deposited His Spirit into us. As it stands now, the only way that we can even mimick what life would have been like in the garden before mankind fell into sin is to be reborn by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  By doing this we start down a road, or a journey if you will, of gaining the wisdom of what it is like to be a perfect being as we continue to grow into perfection.

Often, many of our brothers and sisters forget that every rise and fall of their chest represents the very life of God that is in them from the day of their birth and many feel powerless against the attacks of our common foe, the devil.

It should be encouraging to know that the scriptures tell us time and time again that we have the same Spirit as the Lord God Himself residing in us and that we can call upon God to breathe even more of his cool, sweet, breath into our souls upon request as He knows that their are times when we often get stuck in the oppresive, sin-stained, non-breatheable air mass of life due to the daily challenges of this life that we face from day to day during our whisper of a lifetime on this Earth.

Remember today how powerful you are and what you can accomplish through Christ Jesus if you’ll allow Him to breathe His life into your daily routine by His Holy Spirit.  The pages of the Bible are full of the oxygen molecules that your spiritual muscles need to function properly and fight off any attack that the enemy or your flesh can throw your way.

Also remember, if you have the breath of God, you have the life of God.  If you have the life of God, you have the will of God.  If you have the will of God you have the power of God and as said in God’s word in Luke 10:19 – “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you”.

Be careful not to allow this world to pollute your spiritual body with the poison that it propigates through literature, movies, music, and other forms of entertainment for the devil is truly trying to “kill, steal, and destroy” you (John 10:10) and it is this filthy air that has a number of our brothers and sisters gasping for air every moment of their lives !

He loves you today!  He saw that thing that you did yesterday that you think no one saw and He wants you to know that He has forgiven you for it plus what you will do tomorrow, the next day, and so on.

He desires a perfect life for you, not by anything that you can or will do but by being perfect by residing in His perfect peace and His pefect will for your life.

He misses talking to you!  He desires to commune with you! He longs to see you realize your true potential as you pick up your cross to follow Him and leave the things of this corrupt world behind.

Be blessed today and may you receive this message in love as I am just a messenger of the one who’s message is complete and true.

Love, your brother in Christ!
