Jeremiah 44:24-47:7;  2 Timothy 2:22-3:17;  Psalm 94:1-23;  Proverbs 26:6-8

“All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”  2 Timothy 3:16-17

 

“Proper breathing is an underestimated, but critical building block of good health.  Slow deep breathing gets rid of carbon dioxide waste and takes plenty of clean, fresh oxygen to your brain and muscles.  More blood cells get the new, oxygen-rich air instead of the same old, stale stuff.  Experts estimate that proper breathing helps your body eliminate toxins 15 times faster than poor shallow breathing.”   Mike Kramer, staff writer for Sparkpeople.com

 

What proper breathing does for the body, the breathing of God’s Word does for the mind, body and soul.

Today–and every day–let God’s Word fill you with knowledge of Him, an awareness of sin to confess, correction for wayward ways and guidance for right living–and above all–assurance of life everlasting through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord.

Breathe to live.

    Breathe to serve.

         Breathe to love–

                in Jesus’ Name.

Lord God, with each breath that we take may we be reminded of your life giving breath–the living Word–your Son Jesus Christ.  Without Him we are doomed to run out of breath.  Through Him we are cleansed–sin toxins, removed.  Sustain us with your breath of life this day.  For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
