Your Breath In Our Lungs
“One day the Eternal God scooped dirt out of the ground , sculpted it into the shape we call human, breathed the breath that gives life into the nostrils of the human, and the human became a living soul”. Genesis 2:7 (The Voice)
A “body out of a handful of dirt”, designed by the hands of God. The form, motionless… UNTIL, You breathed the breath of Your Spirit into the formed nostrils… and THEN “IT” became a “LIVING” someone. A living being, the ONLY kind who reflects the VERY IMAGE OF GOD. I emphasize the “handful of dirt” and a “motionless form” for the purpose of “the arrogant human heart” who forgets Whose breath is in their lungs.
You gave humans a soul, a conscience for using our gift of “free will”. Thinking, doing, acting upon our own desires, instead of using that free will to seek out Your heart. ~ How far was that “FALL”? How greatly disastrous it was. It still IS. “Falling” has no end I think, as I observe the actions of my fellow man and am reminded of my own “Spiritless” desires. ~ I grieve for our world. Countless souls forgetting You, the LORD. So many giving credit for their lives and accomplishments to gods that don’t exist. ~ Watching from an exterior realm, life seemingly functions within the “idea” of man believing, he … is “in control”.~ All tangible things in which we place the meaning of our happiness, success, wealth, health, our LIFE in its essence, is so fragile in the reality of its imminent “expiration”. ~ Man forgets that all he as acquired, built with his own hands. Gained by his own intellect. Purchased with his independent means of provision is as vapor. Gone. As You give Your Holy command from Your Heavenly Throne.
Man has forgotten that the titles of: Creator, Master, King, Almighty, All-Powerful, Supreme Majesty, Ever present Ruler, GOD… have always belonged to You. Exemplified by You! What has man ever created that You did not give him?
