God wants us to follow Him as we would in a convoy, relying on constant following of the leader and not GPS and maps. We must follow God and not a formula.
Man became a living being by the breath of God. So he was not to be without God who is the source of that life. But this is what the enemy managed to sell to him. And when he bought that he surely died not having the following of God that is required to keep him close to God. God must breathe on anything we are doing to serve Him for it to have the life that blesses anyone that we are trying to minister to.
