“The words that I speak to you are Spirit, and they are Life.” John
Years ago after having an accident I had to go to a local physician
for a checkup and as you know the first thing they do is check your
blood pressure. The doctor told me that my pressure was too high and
she gave me a prescription for pills to work on my blood pressure.
After leaving the office I began to pray for God’s wisdom and I hear
His words in my inner man.
“Homer, get on the internet and google in about natural cure for
blood pressure.” So, I did this simple instruction. The first thing
that appeared was also simple. “Breathing deeply to lower your
blood pressure.” The instruction that came with this statement was
to breathe deeply and let your breath out slowly. Do this for ten
minutes and then rest a few minutes and check your blood pressure. Do
this daily for your blood pressure.
I had checked my pressure before breathing deeply and it was 150 over
110. After breathing deeply for 10 minutes and resting a few minutes
I checked my pressure again. It was 130 over 85. Glory! Last night
I did this again and my pressure is now 122 over 73. Yes, Glory!
It is interesting to have a scientific knowledge of the workings of
our bodies, but it is more interesting to put our trust in the maker
of our bodies and be willing to cry out to Him for His direction. The
Lord truly wants us to put our trust in Him and to have our life in
the Holy Spirit. Let me suggest that you breathe deeply some and
see what happens. Remember that when God created Adam He breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life and Adam became a living being.
Guess what? When Jesus was resurrected from the dead He came into the
room where His disciples were and He spoke to them “Peace be with
you.” Then He breathed on them , and said to them, “Receive the Holy
Spirit.” (John 20:19-21)
