BREATH OF THE ALMIGHTY

But it is the spirit in a man,

the breath of the Almighty,

that gives him understanding.

Job 32:8

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, apart from Me, you have no wisdom, and life serves no purpose. My Spirit, the breath of the Almighty, blows through your heart, soul, and mind, and fills it with heaven's thoughts and desires. Every time a positive thought is born; each time your heart swells in love toward another; whenever you experience an "aha!" moment of truth; the breath of the Almighty has been at work. It is My Spirit that draws you into My very presence.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Your Spirit is the breath of the Almighty, the One who gives me life, the One who determines my purpose here, the One who helps me understand spiritual truths. You fill up my God-shaped vacuum, Lord. Thank You for breathing on me, Holy Spirit.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Sweet breath comes from putting His words into our mouths.
