Breathe God’s Name (YHWH) and Trust HIM by Istoria Ministries | May 5, 2022 | Podcast | 1 comment 1 Comment christiane on May 30, 2022 at 8:21 am some thoughts on this post: ‘constant prayer’ – in Judaism, ‘breathing’ and prayer are connected “The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life” (Job 33:4). Meditation on the breath, then, is direct meditation on God–“the God in whose hand thy breath is” (Daniel 5:23)–with no intermediary whatsoever. God is “He that giveth breath unto the people upon [the earth], and spirit to them that walk therein” (Isaiah 42:5). Just as the breath of God is the Spirit of God, so also, since we are made in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26), our breath one with our spirit, is our true nature and self. Wherefore: “Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live.…Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.…So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived” (Ezekiel 37:5, 6, 9, 10). Interestingly, in Lamentations 4:20 the Messiah is called “the breath of our nostrils.” The breath of God is His creative power; and all things were made by it. And that power is the Holy Spirit. It is God “in whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind” (Job 12:10). Even more, the breath of God is the breath of mankind: “All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils” (Job 27:3).
