God Says "Breathe"

I remember having my first child like it was yesterday.  Preparing for her to come was so much fun.  I had my bag packed and every family member on stand-by.  With the baby room ready and lamaze classes under my belt, I felt like "Super Mom!"  The day came...and the contractions came.  The nurses and doctors were so patient with me in pain.  However, it seemed as though all of my lamaze class training flew out of the window.  Instead of breathing the way I was taught, with every contraction I would bury my head in my chest and hold my breath!  The nurse would say, "you are going to have to breathe."  I did not want to hear that.  I just wanted to bear the pain and get through the birth.  We all know that what was best for Mommy and baby, was for Mommy to breathe!

The Lord told me that it is the same for many Christians concerning their faith.  When the storm comes, we have the tendancy to bury our head in the sand and just tough it out hoping it will pass soon. When we are going through a faith fight, God says, "Breathe!"  He does not want His people just toughing it out, surviving the storm.  He wants His people to thrive and prosper right in the middle of it!  We have to open our mouths with the confession of faith that lines up with the Word of God, and with a spirit of faith breathe life into our circumstances!  "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place,"  2 Corinthians 2:14.
