What happens when God breathed the dust from the ground? What happens is that a human being! Humans are so complicated, complex, complete with the ability to think, reason, have feelings, to love, get to breed and even promised an eternal life someday in God’s own hand.
“Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”(Genesis 2:7). That was the beginning man was present as a living soul. Breath of life that comes from God that is what makes us a living soul. This means that if we can breathe today, it comes from God’s own breath.
Have we ever thought our breath is used for what purpose? The psalmist saw the other side of a breath. When the breath is still in us, is good if it is used for the right reason, a reason that became the foundation for us to live that is to praising God. “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” (Psalm 150:6).
We cannot save our breath for later use. If we choose to hold your breath, then we would be missing the opportunity for it. Even if we hold it for a long time we could faint or even die. That’s why it while there is still breath in us; we should be able to use it as well as possible for the glory of God. Praise, worship and celebrate God’s goodness to us. Let us not waste the breath that He has bestowed upon us with the things that hurt His heart.
We continue to breathe, because if not we would be die. And as long as we still can breathe, let it be used to praise the Lord. We cannot do the same thing as God did. But we use our breath to secrete word of consolation for those who are experiencing hardship. We can raise the praise and worship. We can use it to run and help others.
Do not waste our breath. God wanted to be glorified through the breath that is given to us.
