Scriptures on “breath”

This weekly sub-series can assist your physical and relational exercise of 24 dynamics of spiritual fitness in Scripture that parallel physical and relational fitness:  balance, flexibility, initiative, partners, weight, etc.  You can print some or all of the Scriptures and read them to each other as you walk, tape them to a wall to guide discussion and prayer as you lift weights, etc.  Each of the dynamics has corresponding devotional articles, music videos, suggested applications, and more.  Use whatever is most helpful to strengthen your love for God and your neighbors through Christ.  If you’re interested in learning more about this holistic approach to fitness, you can read my free book W.A.I.T. Training.

Genesis 2:7, “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”

Job 12:10, “In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Job 32:8, “But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding.”

Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.”

Ezekiel 37:9-10, “Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’”  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

John 20:21-22, “ Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Revelation 11:4-11, “They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.” If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.  Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.  Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified.  For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.  But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.”
