Quicken Me

April 20, 2020

.
Job 33:4 AMPC … [It is] the Spirit of God that made me [which has stirred me up], and the breath of the Almighty that gives me life [which inspires me].
.
The words from the Song in the previous post are still on my heart: Jesus breathe through me.
.
So how does Jesus “breathe” through us?
The answer came from the scriptures and word study below.
.
Jesus “breathes” His word(Psalm 119:107)! His words are spirit and life(John 6:63)!
.
When the Holy Spirit breathes on the Word it’s like seed quickened to life, i.e. it germinates, springs up, grows.  This quickening, giving life – revives, restores, and/or refreshes, from sickness, discouragement, faintness, death. The work and power of the Spirit of Truth is revealed!
.

Prayer:
Jesus breathe through me. Bring life as only You can. Life that reveals the work and power of the Spirit of Truth = a testimony of Jesus bringing glory to His name.

.
Psalm 119:105,107 AMPC … Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. …
… I am sorely afflicted; renew and quicken me [give me life], O Lord, according to Your word!
.
John 6:63 AMP … It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh conveys no benefit [it is of no account]. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life [providing eternal life].
