Can you imagine placing your hands on any page of your Bible and feeling His very breath on the page? That is exactly what this verse is saying (to me). This is how I see it – – if I can’t see Him face to face until I enter heaven then I’ll settle (hardly the right word) for experiencing His breath in the words I’m reading.
Think about the words of this beautiful chorus from the song “Ancient Words” by Lynn DeShazo.
Ancient words ever true, changing me and changing you; We have come with open hearts, oh, let the ancient words impart.
Friends, family, sisters, and brothers in Christ there is nothing more important than knowing God’s word. In every action and situation of our lives we can draw on the Word and know without question it was written for that very purpose.
God did not leave us alone on this earth. He is still breathing every word, in every verse, on every page of our Bibles.
Holy words long preserved for our walk in this world, they resound with God’s own heart; Oh, let the ancient words impart.
Ah, Lord, God thank You for every word, every phrase, every letter of Your Word. Heavenly Father place a real hunger in our hearts to know Your words and use them for our lives. Let us not only read them but let us use them. Put teachers in our lives to help us understand them. Drench us with the Holy Spirit as we read and learn how to apply them. Make it so in Jesus name!
Blessings to you and yours!

When I first read that verse I knew God was alive and wanting to breathe His word on me. He’s so awesome!
