This Is The Air I Breathe. When you arrive in Colorado, the thin air at high altitudes has considerably less oxygen and pressure. With so much less oxygen, your body has to breathe more to get the same amount of essential molecule.
Just as our lungs are in need of fresh air, containing life-giving presence of oxygen, it is essential that the Lord’s presence in our lives never becomes stagnant, filling a void, yet serving no purpose. We are in continually need of fresh breath from the Word of God. Without it, both our convictions and encouragements from God’s Holy Spirit, His life-giving breath, will greatly dim. Proverbs 20:27 “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.”
As I listened to the song this morning, This is The Air I Breathe, by Darlene Zschech, “This is the air I breathe…Your holy presence Living in me…” it reminded me that just as I need air to breathe, I need God’s holy presence living in me and that it is my daily bread. And the song continues that “I am lost without you”, how truly lost we become without God’s Word and Holy Spirit living in us.
Have you allowed the lamp of the Lord to go stagnant in your life? Pick up your Bible and bring the life-giving breath of God back into your innermost being. Do it today!
Psalm 150:6 “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.”
