He Breathed On Them

My Post (13) 

It was the first day of the week, and that very evening, while the disciples were together with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them. “Peace be with you!” He said to them. After He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side.

The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

Again Jesus said to them, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, so also I am sending you.” When He had said this, He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you withhold forgiveness from anyone, it is withheld.” John 20:19-23

Well, this is powerful isn’t it? Just after Jesus is raised from the dead, He visits the disciples and with His glorified body, walks right in. The door was locked because they were afraid of the Jews, there were already the rumors that the disciples had stolen the body I’m sure. But the stone was rolled away by the power of the Spirit as Jesus went forth, the impact or the glory would have killed the guards, they were probably terrified.

What does He do? He shows them the wounds, and He breathed on them. I always wondered why Judas would have walked away from the Spirit, but he has already hanged himself. While they saw the Spirit on Jesus and He was sending them out to heal and cast out devils, it suppose it is likely they had a measure of the Spirit having believed in Him, Peter even was rebuked and had a revelation that He was the Messiah, but they were to wait until Pentecost to receive the gift of tongues. Thomas, may not have been here, why he asked to see the wounds later, the others had already seen them, yet, he remains doubting Thomas.

You may be wondering about the bubbles, a friend who has gone to be with the Lord started this in a way, she sent my mother a pin with bubbles, we started using bubbles to represent the anointing of the Spirit.

Words bubble up from waters deep within a person, a stream gushes from the fountain of wisdom. Proverbs 18:4

But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life. John 4:14

But you are not like that, for the Holy One has given you His Spirit, and all of you know the truth. 1 John 2:20

There are many instance of bubbling in the Bible, the Hebrew word naba means to flow, it is also associated with leaping, as the man at the Beautiful Gate, and in John 5:7, Jesus encounters the man at the pool of Bethesda. Now, at certain times, and angel would trouble, stir or even bubble the waters, while the man said others got ahead of Him, the anointing was right there.

You will notice He asked the man if He wanted to be well, in order to speak his faith, obeying the command to take up his mat and walk , he did just that. This story, has far deeper truths that just a paragraph, but in effect He was telling him to pick up the rest He offers and go. He told the woman with the issue of blood to go in peace. His peace is a gift. John 14:27, and there is so much more to say about how He breathed the very Spirit on them.

We can ask Him to breathe on us as well, and there are many spiritual gifts the Spirit will give as He sees fit as we grow in love and grace, they are powerful and peaceful. We know Jesus was baptized by John and the Spirit came upon Him without measure. In effect, He was also baptized in the Spirit, and even John said he baptized with water, but Jesus would with fire.

Let me pray for you today, Father, thank you for the Spirit that bubbles up in believers with love, joy and peace, that you placed a trust in sons and daughters, and an anointing from the Holy One, while many are struggling to be disciples still, I pray they set that aside and let you love them as no earthly father could, as they honor you, may you honor them with your presence and your peace, and let you beloved Son Jesus breathe on them.

From my mother’s board Anointed Bubbles.

The Breath Of Angels

My Post (6) 

I have had a lifelong love of angels, a dear old lady from church gave me Billy Graham’s book about angels when I was seventeen, I know they have worked in my life and intervened in so many ways according to God’s command and will be there when He comes in His glory.

There is a lot of cherubic and well meaning imagery and stories of angels, and many true stories. Others you would have to use caution on and rely on the Holy Spirit for discernment. I know a lot of people thought was going astray from the faith, but angels are very real and an important part of God’s plan of salvation, they even rejoice over one sinner so why not be joyful over the assignment to help a believer?  God commanded them to in Psalm 91.

We read how He breathed the stars into existence, the angels were already there, He breathed and created them for His heaven, long before people, but He is a Spirit and wanted to put His Spirit into people, create them in His image, so He did. I have to mention that even perfect people could be deceived and even a willing sinner, they gave away heaven on earth, but Jesus redeemed it on the cross.

He gave us access to the Father and His Spirit is in us and we have myriads of angels breathing inspiration to us reminding of us His words, drawing us to Christ, protecting us, keeping us from evil, they are at war with our spiritual enemies, they are curious about us and look into our salvation and one day we will judge them. Mine have done great, I need them all the time.

I have lots of angel pins on Pinterest, many blog posts, and even a whole month of studies. We are not to worship angels or put them above the Lord, but it is foolishness not to let them help you, they always travel in the Spirit, and His realm is everywhere. 

While we are not pray to them, we can pray for Jesus to send them in His name, thank Him for them, and we can certainly acknowledge them, sense them in the presence of His Spirit, there are more for us than against us, as believers our foes are defeated at the feet of Jesus, halted by His blood, crushed by the cross of Calvary.

Let me pray for you today….,

Father, thank you for breathing holy angels into existence and that they wok on behalf of beliers at you command, that they obey the voice of your Word, and we do by speaking the name of your Son, that He assigns them to whatever task is needed by your people, many who are desperate just to breath.

Let Jesus breathe on us, angels breathe into our situations and defeat these foes on our behalf, our battles belong to you as we rest in you and be still, yoo fight for us nd nothing will ever seperate us from your love. 

Praise Him, all you angels, breathe over the saints in His name.

Breathe The Name Of Jesus

My Post (3) 

While we are studying breath, wind and Spirit, this month, how could we ever leave out the name of Jesus? He is after all our very heartbeat as a believer and only a breath away. He left us His peace as a gift and offers us rest, something not to be refused.

He sent the Spirit to Comfort and teach and we receive instruction on everything from prayer to praise in His presence. So what about the name of Jesus? It is powerful, above all names, God put Him in charge and demons flee at His name, it is a weapon of our warfare, and we are to believe we receive when we pray and ask in His name. We are to ask in line with His Word, not just for frivolous things. 

While He is good at giving gifts, some require a wait. He may have a better time, and some people have to mature. The name of Jesus actually means salvation, Yeshua, in Hebrew. And we know Him by many names, Emmanuel, God is with is is mentioned at His birth and Isaiah prophesied about Him, not only in chapter 53 but 9:6 lists more names, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Like God the Father who has many names but is the one triune God, Jesus has had all things given into His hands and I believe all the Father’s names as well, since He and the Father were one, and even through the Spirit.

In the Old Testament, it is my personal belief that Jesus was the one who walked in the Garden of Eden, and perhaps even made the sacrifice to cover them as He would one day for us. He was the Angel of the Lord that appeared to Abraham, wrestled with Jacob for a blessing, and appeared to Hagar and Manoah’s wife. 

Let’s look at verses about His precious name and breathe the name of Jesus.

And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call His name Jesus; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21.

But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know Him who sent me. John 15:21

And His name—by faith in His name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16 The man at the Beautiful gate.

On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 19:5

When you are assembled in the name of the Lord Jesus and my spirit ( Paul, meaning he is there in spirit, ) is present, with the power of our Lord Jesus. 1 Corinthians 5:4

Jesus name is  — far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. Ephesians 1:21

Then God gave Christ the highest place and honored his name above all others. Phillipians 2:9

So He became as far superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is excellent beyond theirs. Hebrews 1:4

These are only a few verses, the is much more to study about His name, you may want to kook up verses and name of both Jesus and God, and guess what the Spirit has many names as well, keep studying and rightly divide.

Let Everything That Has Breath Praise The Lord!

My Post (22)

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6

This is a familiar verse and easy to memorize. I know for myself that I praise Him and thank Him all day and every day, but I have to admit there are times it is not as easy to. It is a necessary part of being a believer though, in fact, while not a commandment per se, it is, in the sense of being part of His command that if you love Him you will obey Him.

Praise should be innate, overflowing from the heart of one who is beloved by Jesus, even if there are times that there will have to be a choice to ignore feelings, pain, or whatever may be bothering you and just decide to praise.

Birds praise Him in song, butterflies with their beauty, the skies are His handiwork. The flowers lift the heads toward heaven, and the fruits bloom and blossom. Even the lambs and puppies praise with their breath. Colossians 1:16 declares all creation was for His glory, but people were created in His image Genesis tell us, so we should praise Him above all.

The waterfalls that spill over the mountainsides and the ocean breezes, the spring rains and the autumn leaves. The colors and the cool winds of grace as His Spirit blows gently through the changing seasons.

Let’s look at praise verses and remember, if we don’t praise the Lord, the rocks will. 

I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall be always in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify Him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long. Psalm 71:8

It is good to praise the LORD, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High, to proclaim Your loving devotion in the morning and Your faithfulness at night. Psalm 92:1

For the LORD is good, and His loving devotion endures forever; His faithfulness continues to all generations. Psalm 100:5

Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: for His mercy endures forever. Psalm 106:1

Hallelujah, for the LORD is good; sing praises to His name, for it is lovely. Psalm 135:3

Hallelujah! How good it is to sing praises to our God, for praise is pleasant and lovely.

Psalm 147:1

Praise our God, all you who serve Him, and those who fear Him, small and great alike! Revelation 19:5

I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out. Luke 19:39

Though poetic and lyrical, a many psalms are whether or not you take it literally or not.

O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs? Psalm 114:6 and Isaiah 55:12 says, You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. And Psalm148, the sun moon and stars praise Him

I believe it could easily be both literal and metaphorical. Personally, I believe it could ring true in the spiritual realm and through the heavens. And why not in the natural? We may not hear it but the rocks, mountains and stars could be praising Him, He is that good and loving.

A Breath Of Mist

My Post (23) 

As we are using A Breath Of Spring this April, perhaps, this girl in the sunlight is waiting for a drizzle, a breath of mist. You know, many people can breathe cooler air, especially with medical conditions and hospitals are kept cool, though I have recently found it is important to keep older people warmer so they do get hypothermia. I am not giving medical advice, only teaching His Word and I will never tell you not to take medication, but you can try prayer breathing and keep His healing words in you r mind and heart.

I was out this afternoon for breakfast that was really brunch, I was going shopping but it is a cloudy, gray day, the rain is a drizzle, a mist and the a little more steady so I am home sooner. But I can breath in the mist, the drizzle, the cool rainy day that is just the opposite of the stifling, hot and oppressive summer heat that chokes you in July and August.

As believers, hopefully, you have heard of how God followed the Israelites in a cloud by day and a mist of sorts, but a pillar of fire at night. We should be able to breath better in Jesus, more freely as He is the breath of life, but persecutions and afflictions arise an we need His Spirit to breath on us and for us.  We are studying breath, wind and Spirit, and here is the word for cloud in Hebrew, timarah, like palm tree. The actual phrase is pillar of cloud like a column.

I do believe this could have very will been Jesus, perhaps, as the Angel Of The Lord. A palm, like the leaves tossed before Him a reference to peace. And the very Prince of Peace, Himself, a cloud, pillar or mist, before them and a fire by might taking a place behind them to protect then from enemies, it is no different for believers today as we are to be led by the Spirit and keep in step with Him.

I wanted to use the cloud, the mist, the dews, rains and outpouring of His Spirit as imagery to a breath of mist, that we might breath easier in Him and His love. Here are a few verses, and there is also reference to judgement here, s obedience is better, don’t refuse Him as Lord as a unbeliever or His rest as one.

Let my taching fall like rain and my speech settle like dew, like gentle rain on new grass, like showers on tender plants. Deuteronomy 32:2

May He be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth! Psalm 72:6

He will come to us like the rain Hosea 6:3

For the rain He sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring. Joel 22:3

Ask rain from the LORD in the season of the spring rain, from the LORD who makes the storm clouds, and he will give them showers of rain, to everyone the vegetation in the field. Zechariah 10:1

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. James 5:7

The Very Breath Of Heaven

My Post

I have had a lot of experiences in Christ, I have had to face some trials, but the beautiful presence of the Lord is always, always, and dare I risk a third always there. It is true whether we realize it as a believer or not. So often we take the very breath of heaven for granted when it is right there.

How many days have we walked by and failed to smell the roses, even the grass freshly mowed, the morning coffee, breakfast muffins baking, the perfume we wear, the scents of spring and summer and even the winter’s hot chocolate, peppermint and holiday offerings? These are all gifts in life, and we are not always inhaling the delicious and cool air that gives us His love and a very breath of heaven.

We are also to wear the love of Jesus and to be clothed in it, we are to be the aroma of Christ, and our prayers a sweet fragrance to Him, like the incense on the altar, our bodies now His temple. There is so much imagery in the word and while we may familiarize our selves with it, have a working knowledge of it, we have yet to fully grasp the spiritual realm of the Holy Spirit, and He and  the holy angels are everywhere.

The Holy Spirit is the very Spirit of Jesus, the Son of God, Himself, who speaks gently to our hearts and minds through the Word of God and in music, psalms, songs and laughter and through other believers and their love and prayers. But we must receive the gift of the very breath of heaven and apply it to our lives.

We receive the Spirit at salvation and there are subsequent gifts and even a baptism, as we grow in grace and believe. And then you will see that He meant the prayer that His will be done on earth as in heaven. There is a literal temple in heaven, altar, holy of holies, and there was on earth, it was destroyed twice and will be rebuilt once more just before or during the time of the Anti Christ, I tend to believe during. The Antichrist will stop the ceremonies and Jesus will stop Him, and rule, Himself.

But the spiritual realm has us being His temple and He is already on the mercy seat of our hearts, so the next time you smell a rose, think of Him as the rose of Sharon, if you smell the morning mist, He is in that, He is in the petrichor, the fragrance after the rains, in the flowers, the honeysuckle vines, I used to smell in Atlanta, His fragrance and aroma, His love has always permeated us and we often fail to notice,

It is spring, and already the afternoons are hot here, the thick hot air can be stifling, but we, as believers are privy to the Spirit and the aroma of Christ, the fragrance of His love. And not just once in a while or or a cool fall or spring day but everyday, when we know Him as Lord, we can enjoy the very breath of heaven.

Take A Breath Of His Love

My Post (6)

Psalm 34:8 invites us to taste and see that the Lord is good, and He is. Using the five senses in the natural we can sense the Lord, and the Holy Spirit enhances those senses, making us sensitive and giving a sort of sixth sense, perception. Read 1 Corinthians 12,13, 14 about love, the Spirit and gifts.

It is not divination, but a gift of the Holy Spirit, some people have it more than others, and some not at all because they may neither believe in or walk in spiritual gifts. I have had warnings, and some instances by what someone else is picking up on. Recently, I had someone tell me about a bit of spiritual warfare, the Lord showed me even more to pray against.

The word spirit, is ruach in Hebrew pronounces roo – ok. It is the same for spirit, breath and wind. So you see the Holy Spirit is  in us as believers, but in vary degrees or measures, He is the Spirit that prays for us, Romans 8:26, the Spirit that teaches, comforts and intercedes for out spirit, He is the wind going where pleases, John 3:8 and our very breath, so if we can taste and see, we can certainly breathe His love.

Here are a few verses today, if you are like me you can use a little love and it is nice to know we can pray in the spirit, build each other up, enjoy His peace and presence, and breathe His love, these would work with prayer breathing as well, if you go to April 2nd. 

By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalm 103:8

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John 14:23

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30

Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22,23

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2

And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:2

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16

We love because ( Him ) He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 1 Thessalonians 3:12

I hope this blesses you today, so enjoy a breath of His love, and there are so many more verses.

A Breathe Of Release

My Post (16) 

Have you ever just needed to breathe a breath of release? A sigh, a sob of salvation from a bad situation. Jesus has breathed over me lately, and I know there is peace and power in His love, and He is so full of mercy and grace.

When you are praying about certain problems or people, you can come under attack, like health and finance. I won’t go into great detail but I have seen it happen, for instance last month I wrote about rest, so you see, there will an effort to keep you from resting if not from others or the enemy, from your own mind. I am learning about breath myself.

We have to be very careful and aware of His presence in these last days, rest is important and just the very breath of His presence and He is our breath and life and the sincere prayers of the repentant heart, are a breath of release.

We can release stress, tension, fear and anger, all the negative non essential and inoperative words and actions spoken over us. We can release tears and pain and He will wipe them away. He looks and hearts and we want His judgements made for us, He is for us.

And even when something appears to work against us, He is still working for our good. I pray you can open your heart, breath a sigh of relief and a of release, whatever is going on, or a blessing yet to be, leave it in His capable hands.

So I will have him flogged, and then I will release him. Luke 23:16

““Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews? Mark 15:9

This verse is in regard to the trial of Jesus, and of course, it was Barrabas who was releases instead, Jesus, the innocent one paid our debt, overpaid and released us by taking our place. Did you know He was tried at night which never happened before? He was actually beaten and flogged, it should have been one or the other, Jewish law would have stoned Him, but the Romans had perfected the cruel art of crucifixion.

The word release is used in many instances and includes Jubilee, divorce and the disciples from prison. The word Shmita refers to the Sabbatical cycle and I know you are wondering when the next Jubilee years is, The year 5782 on the Jewish calendar, September 7, 2021, through September 26, 2022, we are close to the next Sabbatical year. Many believe He could come in the fall as there are feasts then that He could fulfill, many are still guessing and calculating, but He will come when you least expect, just be ready.

The word release has many uses in the Greek and Hebrew, here are a few.

Greek

apo – away from

apoluo – to let go, discharge and dismiss

apallasso –  to remove, release

Hebrew

deror – a free flowing run, liberty

shammat – remission of debt, suspension of labor

Most certainly I tell you, whatever things you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever things you release on earth will have been released in heaven. Matthew 18:18

I want to agree that whatever we need bound in our lives is bound in His name, and that He loose the enemies from their assignments. For we may not even know what they all are. We want Him to release chains from believers and chain the enemies instead, casting them into outer darkness. May He release His holy angels on our behalf. Praise you Lord, for releasing us from whatever binds us as we are bound you.

Now, you can breathe a sigh, and a breath of release.

When The Wind Blows

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:8

This is such a beautiful verse about the Holy Spirit isn’t it? Nicodemus has come to question Jesus at night, because was a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews, ask a silly question, get a parable, Jesus is like that, we have to study and seek the meaning, and His Spirit teaches us.

Basically, He is telling Him about being born again, we really don’t understand how God creates even with all the scientific and medical knowledge. And we don’t have the omniscience to see the spiritual recreation taking place in hearts or souls, we get glimpse of the spiritual, in dreams or visions, and those who operate in spiritual gifts, but that is only as the Spirit sees fit.

Like the wind that we don’t see, only feel, the gentle breeze on our face or the powerful gust, the Spirit goes and does what He wants, when He wants but remember, He is not speaking for Himself but only what He hears, Jesus or sometimes, the Father say for Him to repeat.

His Spirit speaks to ours, and yes, I know of people hearing audible voices and no they are not crazy, they may be told to do something unusual like to anoint someone or not go somewhere but they are not driven by demonic voices. Most of the time, it is a knowing, though I don’t see Him as a conscience, the blood covers that, people like me tend to over repent, it is more inspiration, encouragement and comfort, you may sense His presence longing for you to rest in Him, does He or has He held you close?

If you have not experienced His love to that degree I pray you do, may the wind of the Spirit embrace you today. He is powerful and gentle, and will not force His love or will on you, you have to choose to receive the Lord as savior, then you have a measure of the Spirit, but He will teach you, guide you and give you spiritual gifts as you grown in grace.

Here are a couple of other verses about the wind.

The LORD does all that pleases Him in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and in all their depths. He causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth. He generates the lightning with the rain and brings forth the wind from His storehouses. Psalm 135:7

The wind blows southward, then turns northward; round and round it swirls, ever returning on its course. Ecclesiastes 1:6

And from the NLT,

He decided how hard the winds should blow and how much rain should fall. Job 28:25

I have needed His strength and power, He goes and does as He pleases, and I won’t limit the seeds sown by my words of love giving Him the glory and I love His tenderness, the gentle wind that cools me on a warm day, when the wind blows.

God Breathed Inspiration

From infancy ( being born again ) you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 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 complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15,16, 17

Just as breathed out the stars and all of creation, so has His Word over the centuries. All Scripture was given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, to the patriarchs and prophets, the people the Spirit came upon in the Old Testament, and though women may not have written it, other than Bathsheeba’s contribution to Proverbs 31, the Spirit was upon women as well, who prophesied and even Deborah, the judge and others.

After the crucifixion, Jesus who had already breathed on His disciples sent the Holy Spirit to believers, and will further offer the baptism of the Spirit and other gifts as He sees fit. So, every word of the Bible is an accurate record, even if there are verses some say contradict each other, they are not always seeing it in context or rightly dividing. The Spirit is the teacher who helps us discern, and yes, He inspires.

I think all you would have to do is read my poetry, for instance, and not only mine but some others I blog with. They have a beautiful insight on God, and many are still reconciling their lives being faithful, in need of His healing touch. Yet, they, as I have, continue in faith and and see the beauty of Christ.

He breathed creation, He breathes creativity, inspiration. Whether a box of crayons in the hand of a child, coloring a butterfly, to the artist who brushes them on a canvas or mural, to the photographers who captures the monarch at just the right speed, to the butterfly emerging from the cocoon itself, colors bursting forth, taking wing under His refuge.

I have seen women start becoming creative who weren’t before, people who are starting blogs. We all have something to share and to say about our experiences with the Lord and how we came to know Him. He trusted me with a gift of words, and favored me with amazing grace, and is blessing me with His peace like never before.

I once thought it was up to me to hone this writing gift, now I think He did that Himself over time, or maybe  it was perfect all along, I just didn’t realize how much I was loved.  I have written poems that I thought we good, but then later ones that were better, Valentine From God, from 2003, I don’t think I could ever match, but Inviting The Prince Of Peace, is also a top post, both on A Daughter’s Gift / Top Posts. I personally like He Wept For Me and He Breathed Stars as well.

But you know as you grow closer to Him as your Heavenly and creative Father, you get that sense that you are typing but He is writing for you or through you. If you have yet to experience that don’t worry, your time will come as He breathes inspiration to you whether music  or art, writing, even building or medical knowledge, whatever your field, He will inspire.

A lot of people fail to understand the prophetic, and especially prophetic ministry, often they just don’t receive it or hold on until it grows into fruition. I can now tell where I start and Jesus picks it up, especially, post called The Second Adam, it like the Lord speaking and I am writing. So, is He still breathing inspiration? Absolutely.

Whether a little or a lot, or He is growing you up in grace, He is breathing inspiration, often a gentle breeze or a mighty rushing wind, He breathed and creation began, and He continues giving good gifts. He will cleanse us with with His Word.

So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21

For no such prophecy was ever brought forth by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21
I pray He breathes inspiration to you today.
