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 (Genesis 2:7, KJV)
Genesis 2:7 above gives us a second recording of the creation of man. The LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground, referring to the body that was created from the ground. I want you to use your imagination to dramatize what was happening on this special day in eternity. God created Adam’s body, and it was lying on the dust, lifeless. It was complete, perfect yet did not have life. Adam could not feel, think, speak, act, etc. He laid lifeless and motionless on the ground. Then something happened.
The scripture above says God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living creature. Imagine a mighty wind blowing over Adam’s body causing him to jump off the ground and coming into consciousness of self, able to see, hear, think, etc. The verse above uses the term “became,” which in the Greek means “to assume a different condition or state.” The lifeless body of Adam became a living, moving, talking and acting creature. The breath of the spirit brought about a change. It was a spiritual wind that brought about a physical change.
There is a wind that blows over natural circumstances and brings about a change. It comes from the Breath of the Word and the Spirit of God!
Why does the scripture use the “wind” to refer to the spirit? ( John 3:8). Declare that “the wind of God is blowing over every aspect of my life and bringing to life whatever is dead.”
APPLY THE WORD
Whenever you believe the Word and act upon it, you are causing the breath(wind) of God’s mouth to blow over your circumstances. The same is true when we declare the Word in faith. The Word is the trigger of the Holy Spirit. Learn to apply “spirit” to our circumstances to get supernatural results.
Thank the Father for the ability to unleash the supernatural over our physical situations.
