God’s Word Brought To You Today By The Holy Spirit

all scripture is god-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of god[a]may be thoroughly equipped for every

As I sit here this morning thinking about 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and writing this devotional I am looking out my front window at new fallen snow.  Fluffy, fresh, pure white snow, lightly covering the roof tops and yards.  Tree branches are glistening with the soft white powder.  I start thinking about God’s breath and imagine it being fresh and pure like the new snow.  God’s fresh, pure life being breathed into each line of scripture.

God communicated to individuals the specific truth of scripture through his breath of life, the Holy Spirit.  The Hebrew word for Spirit is rauch which means “air in motion”.  This is the same word in Hebrew for breath and life.  Super cool, right. The Greek word for “God Breathed” is theopneustos, theo meaning God pneo meaning breath.” (Click the link to go the The Blue Letter Bible to hear the pronunciation of theopneustos.  I thought this would be a fun little addition to this week’s blog and to share one of my favorite on-line study tools!

My Woman’s Study Bible says, “The Holy Spirit Superintended” , or oversaw the process in the writing of scripture so there were no errors in the original writings.

2 Peter 1:20-21 tells us, “ Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”  

Peter is addressing the false teachers who argued the reliability of the Christian message.  They believed that the apostles were making up the stories they were about Jesus.  Peter contended that the Old Testament was recorded by men who were moved, or carried by the Holy Spirit.

And if we go to the very beginning, Genesis 1:2 the Spirit of God was there, “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

Peter was right!

God chose these precious Prophets of Old and Apostles of New, ok well some of them not so precious but I think that was to get some very special points across to us,  anyway he chose them to breathe His Holy spirit into them to carry His life to us.

I have to believe that all of this connection of scripture from Old to New Testament, and my friend this is just a simple example, the Bible is a seamless story from beginning to end,  that when I need to hear from God for a word of encouragement, discipline, training, or teaching I can turn to scripture and without a doubt know I can rely on His word.  It so much more pure and fresh than new fallen snow outside my window, it is LIFE!

Heavenly Father, Thank you today for sending your Holy Spirit to this world to live in your believers.  Lead us Father to your word when we are confused, need a little discipline and guidance or just need a word of encouragement because we know it is true and trustworthy.  In your Son Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. I love that you wrote about the Holy Spirit. I have concerns that too many believers don’t understand that they have God’s Spirit and His power living in them. Also too many churches are trying to make God’s Word into what they want it to mean. They want it to go along with what they believe the world is telling them is ok. They think it was written by a bunch of men and not the breath of God.

  2. Thanks for your kind words. Unfortunately, religion is man-made and people are always going to have their opinions and interpretation of God’s Word because they either do not take the time to study it thoroughly or they take it out of context and use bits and pieces to meet their needs. Unfortunately the devil is working over time to try to cause confusion in this world. He will not succeed because God will prevail. In the meantime, believers in Jesus Christ must stand firm in the faith and speak God breathed truth to share His Love and message to those who do not know Him. That is my goal when writing this blog. To always try to do my best to study His word and present the truth in my devotions. If I am not, then I pray my readers will redirect me. I believe praying and asking for God’s direction in sharing His word is a great way to stay focused on the truth as well. We can pray for right direction for those who are being mislead.


  3. Thank you Marian, I believe this blog has been a true calling from God. As I begin each one, I ask Him for guidance and what He wants me to share. All the praise and glory to Him, our Father!
