The Breath of God: 2 Corinthians 3:6
The Spirit give life. 2 Corinthians 3:6
In my favorite restaurant, my napkin kept blowing away because fans were blowing in the room. I kept replacing the napkin, and finally had to sit on it to keep it from getting away. Unable to control the movement of air, I tried to control its effects.
How often do I try to restrict God’s movement in my life? I cannot control the breath of God so I cling to old ways, hoping that God will stay with me but not ask me to change. But when it comes down to it I am not resisting change. I’m resisting the Spirit of God, forgetting the breath of the Almighty gives me life (Job 33:4, NIV).
God chose to live and die as a man so that I could feel His breath on my face. Will I deeply breathe in that Spirit? Or do I prefer to rule in my small and suffocating spaces?
