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!
