Breath of Heaven

"Then the Lord God formed [that is, created the body of] man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being [an individual complete in body and spirit]." Genesis 2:7 (Amplified)

Of all the creatures God mad, Adam was the only one he breathed on. He didn't breathe a second time on Eve, because we are one, like God is trinity... we are tri-parts spirit, soul, and body. Man and Woman are one, much like the trinity, neither one is more important than the other, rather complementary.

Human life is particularly precious and worth safeguarding because we are God-breathed miracles, the crown of creation.

David was so gutsy and realized who he was and said, “For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” 1 Samuel 17:26. But he was discounted again and asked to tend his sheep.

David recounted his past victories to Saul and said let me fight. “Your servant killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God!” 1 Samuel 17:36.

I think it’s worth noting that, not only was Goliath a giant, about 12 feet tall, but he even had a person in front of him as a shield guard to protect himself. David attempted to use Saul’s armor, but he wasn’t used to it.
