Daily Fountain 2017 - Breathe On Me Breath Of God








Saturday May 6

Bible Reading:     Gen. 2: 1 - 9
Topic:         Breathe On Me Breath Of God

Today's passage is a summary of the work of creation which was detailed in Genesis Chapter 1

Two important things emerge from this account.

First - when God finished His work of creation, He rested on the seventh day. He blessed and sanctified it as a day of rest.

Later when He gave the Children of Israel the Ten Commandments, He reiterated the need to have a rest day from all our labours.

If God saw it fit to declare a day of rest, we must understand that it is absolutely essential for us to rest for the good of our health.

Moreover as Christians we must also have the habit of gathering with others for worship and fellowship to 'recharge our spiritual batteries' for the coming week. This will help us to live as God's Children wherever we work.

Secondly - when God made man, He breathed into Him the breath of life and man became a living being.

Every living person derives life from God and we can only fully live as God intended if we understand that we cannot truly live apart from God.

Prayer:

Breathe on me Breath of God
Fill me with life anew
That I may love what Thou dost love
And do what Thou wouldst do
Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 2: 7

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul"
