• Spiritual Breathing


    If you become aware of an area of your life (an attitude or
    an action) that is displeasing to the Lord, even though you are
    walking with Him and sincerely desiring to serve Him, simply
    thank God that He has forgiven your sins—past, present, and
    future—on the basis of Christ’s death on the cross. Claim His
    love and forgiveness by faith and continue to have fellowship
    with Him.
    If you retake the throne of your life through sin—a
    definite act of disobedience—breathe spiritually. Spiritual
    Breathing (exhaling the impure and inhaling the pure) is an
    exercise in faith that enables you to experience God’s love and
    forgiveness.
    1. Exhale: Confess your sin—agree with God concerning your
    sin and thank Him for His forgiveness of it, according to
    1 John 1:9 and Hebrews 10:1–25. Confession
    involves
    repentance—a change in attitude and action.
    2. Inhale: Surrender the control of your life to Christ, and
    receive the fullness of the‑Holy Spirit by faith. Trust that He
    now directs and empowers you, according to the command
    of Ephesians 5:18 and the promise of 1 John 5:14,15.
