Breath of Life

Sydney is still having a hard time breathing, so we are boldly praying that the Spirit, Breath, and Wind of God enter her body and that it not only sustain her life, but that it completely heals and transforms her.  My little angel is already a miracle and I am believing God to do something amazing in her life that brings glory and honor to His name.  We are claiming two scriptures over her life and I ask that you stand in agreement with me: “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the almighty gives me life.” (Job 33:4) & “I will put breath in you and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 37:6b)

I am praying that the Spirit of the Lord be poured out on Sydney and that it encompasses, hovers, and rests upon her very being.  The Hebrew word for Spirit is “Ruach” and it literally means “air in motion” and it’s the same word used to represent breath and life.  I marvel that we are created in the image of God and the breath He used to create all things flows through us.  The Holy Spirit and the breath of God are the air we breathe and when we literally breathe in His presence, our breath fills us with His Spirit.

It pains me to know my baby is in distress, but I find solace and comfort in God’s word and His promises.  I know He somehow loves her even more than I do and even in this, He has a purpose.  Psalm 150 says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” and my prayer is that Sydney will have that chance to worship and praise her maker and that I will have the chance to show her a glimpse of the love her heavenly Father has for her.  In all things I will praise the Lord, through Whom all blessings flow.
