Coffee Time with Jesus

  • The Holy Spirit: The Breath of the Lord
    The grass withers, the flower fades,
    because the breath of the LORD blows upon it;
    surely the people are grass.
    Isaiah 40:7
    The Holy Spirit is the Breath of the Lord; He breathes life into all living things. It is the Breath of the Lord that determines how long each thing shall live. This means that it is the Spirit’s breath that determines when things will die. Originally, He breathed a life cycle into every kind of tree, plant and grass. And through intermediate forces—wind, cold and nature’s forces—it is the Spirit’s breath that determines when each dies. The Spirit has breathed a life cycle of 70 years into the normal human body; and by reason of strength, some live into their 80s or beyond (Psalm 90:10). The Spirit knows the length of the days of your life, but you’ll not know which is the last day. So live this day to its fullest potential; live for God.
    Holy Spirit, I accept each day You give, and I will live each one as though it is my last. I’ll live this day to the fullest. May I glorify You throughout this day.
    The Holy Spirit is the Breath of the Lord, so He gives you the Lord’s life. Since the Lord lives forever, He gives eternal life to those who believe in Christ. Since the Lord is holy, He helps you live a holy life. Since the Lord is righteous, He gives you the Spirit to do the right things.
    Holy Spirit, breathe on me. Renew Your life in me so that I’ll rise up to shake off the chains that keep me from doing Your will. Amen.
    Go Deeper: Isaiah 40:1-11
    The Holy Spirit gives life to all living things.
