The Psalmist promises that God restores our essence, our souls. His Son chooses to walk the same path as we do. When Jesus sent His disciples to go and heal and teach, he breathed upon them. This was the breath of God elevating them to holy status. We also travel on the same roads in the presence of these saints; God has also breathed the sweet taste of Love and Truth that allows us to intersect our lives with those of Jesus’s disciples. John reminds us that breath of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Each breath we take is the sweet air that God gives us.
