The Breath of Life

When I think of the word “exhale” it reminds me of the creation of man. In Genesis 2:7 it is stated “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”( King James Version)

God breathed out right into the nostrils of Adam, and there was life. As we breathe each day, we should be reminded of the creation of the man. We should also realize what a blessing it is to have breath in our bodies. Without breath there is no life.

Because God allows our lives to go on, we are able to inhale and exhale over and over. This is a process that should not be taken for granted. I’ve never birthed a child into this world. But the most wonderful part of birth is to see the baby take the first breath, and exhale with a loud cry. At this point the mother is able to exhale in relief, knowing that her baby is breathing.

In Acts 17:28 it is stated “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” (King James Version) Thank you Lord for the breath of life!

Sweet devotional, short, yet powerfully done.

God bless~

This reminds me of the sort of devotion you'd read in The Daily Bread. Well done--and I'd encourage you to expand, write longer devotionals with some personal anecdotes that will form a connection with the readers. Your writing is strong.

This is a good devotional about one of the most important subjects in the Bible. God breathed into Adam and Adam became a living soul.

Thanks for sharing.

Great short devotional.

I think this is a powerful devotion. You make some wonderful points. Even when I'm in pain, I give thanks for God allowing me one more breath. You may want to consider adding a prayer to your devotions. Some people may not realize how to pray--that it is like talking to our best friend. Your message touched my heart and reminds me that I need to be thankful for every breath.
