We worship the Lord because He is our creator, our provider, and our protector. We are victorious because we have the strength of the Lord’s unending love and mighty power.
Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength, ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Tremble before him, all the earth. The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad, let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
1 Chronicles 16:23-31 New International Version (NIV)
The song, "Breathe" came about as song writer and worship leader, Marie Barnett was leading worship and simply started singing words of the realization of how Jesus was everything to her and how she desired to hear His words for life. Barnett says, "The longer I’m a Christian, the more desperate I am for God."
This version of Breathe, performed by Michael W. Smith is one of my favorite worship songs. I cannot remember a time when I have sang this song and not become overwhelmed by the goodness and comfort of the Holy Spirit.
The time came when the Lord God formed a man's body from the dust of the ground and breathed into it the breath of life. And man became a living person.
Genesis 1:7 (Living Bible)
