Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Breathing the Breath of God"
"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 being."
The Wonder of earth and God is mixed together for Breakfast this morning. God "Breathed," His breath into the first man, made from the dirt of earth; and mankind has been "Breathing the Breath of God," every day since their creation!
I was struck with the humble and weak character of common dirt being invaded by the awesome Power of God our Creator!
Oh how thrilling this is to chew on, we have this treasure of Almighty God in this earthen vessel; so that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us (2Corin.4:7).
Oh, how many years I "limited the Holy One of Israel"(Psa.78:41), like Israel did; by my stubbornness and lawlessness, foolishly resisting His Love, Life, and Goodness.
Oh, this picture of my Commander Jesus putting a "leash" on His power, holding back His power, so He could honor "my free will choice" to choose unconditional surrender to His Love! This is so humbling and liberating at the same time.
By yielding to His Amazing Love I was broken and humbled by my sin - and then with repentance, I was liberated from all that separated me from God as His Power and forgiveness was "unleashed" in me and through me! Ooooh Rah!
Listen up Warrior! This is what happened to you when you received Christ as your Lord and Savior. When we feel limited we just need to Praise the Lord and sing that song again:
"Praise the Lord,
He can work through those who praise Him,
Praise the Lord,
For our God inhabits praise,
Praise the Lord,
For the chains that seems to bind you,
Serve only to remind you,
That they drop powerless behind you,
When you praise Him!"
Breathe the Breath of God Warrior and Praise the Lord!
Warrior at your side,
