(1) .. The power of the LORD came over me. The LORD brought me out by His spirit and put me down in the middle of a valley. The valley was filled with bones.
(2) .. He led me all around them. I saw that there were many, many bones at the bottom of the valley, and they were all dry.
(3) .. Then He asked me, " Son of man, can these bones live ? " I answered, " Only You know Almighty LORD "
(4) .. Then He said to me, " Prophecy to these bones. Tell them, " Dry bones, listen to the word of the LORD "
EZEKIEL 37 1 : 4
LOOKING AT YOUR LIFE .. DO YOU FIND YOURSELF STARING AT A PILE OF DEAD, DRY BONES ? ..
Your situations and your circumstances .. Everything appears to be a huge mess and you find yourself wondering if things are ever going to change .. " Can my dead, dry bones ever live ? "
In the above Scripture, God shows Ezekiel a pile of dead, dry bones and God asks him .. " Can these bones live ? "
In other words God was asking Ezekiel if he thought anything could be done to change the situation .. Could the mess of the dead, dry bones be cleaned up ? .. Ezekiel however could not answer the question.
So naturally your Almighty Father stepped in and He told Ezekiel exactly what to do .. God told him, " Speak to the bones and tell them to hear the Word of God " ..
SO HOW DOES THIS APPLY TO YOU ?
Well, if you currently have a big mess in your life and you find yourself facing situations and circumstances that look absolutely impossible .. do NOT feel helpless, hopeless and on the edge of giving up .. instead you stand up and you face your problems head on and you begin to fight them with words .. You talk to your mountains and you tell them .. Listen, finances, hear the Word of God !! .. Listen, debt, hear the Word of God !! .. Listen, sickness, hear the Word of God !! .. Whatever your " dry bones " may be STOP talking about them and START seriously talking to them ..
If you continue to read a little further into Ezekiel 37 .. You will see that Ezekiel obeyed God and he spoke to the bones and a miraculous thing happened .. the bones came together and they were covered with ligaments, muscles and skin.
However the bones still did not have any life in them .. So once again God told Ezekiel to speak to them, commanding them to be filled with breath .. and once again Ezekiel obeyed God and he spoke to the bones .. and once again a miracle took place .. the bones received the breath of life and the Spirit of God.
A pile of useless, dead, dry bones SUDDENLY received life .. All because of one man who obeyed God and prophesied the Word of God over an impossible situation that desperately needed to change.
Be honest with yourself for a moment .. What are you saying to the dead, dry bone situations that you are facing ? .. Are you talking to them anointing them with God's divine influence ? .. OR .. Are you perhaps constantly talking about them, allowing them to remain huge mountains that are slowly destroying you ?
" Nothing in my life is ever going to change " .. " I am never going to get out of debt " .. " I am never going to get that promotion at work " .. I am never going to find a better job " .. " I am never going to overcome this addiction " .. " I am never going to beat this illness " .. If this is the way you are thinking and if these are the things that you are confessing, then in reality all you are doing is opening the door for more negativity and more troubles to walk right into your life.
Thinking, feeling and speaking negatively only allows satan's hold on you to get stronger, and sadly it is you that is giving him the right to use his power in and over your life.
Do you know that you are God's child and He loves you so very, very much .. STOP allowing satan to keep you in fear and misery .. START speaking God's Word and begin to live in the Victory of the Lord .. Amen !!
God HAS made you many great promises, start talking to your dead, dry bones, start filling your problems with the influence of God's Word and watch as the power of your miracle working God begins to make some incredible changes in both you and in your life.
WHEREVER THE SOLDIER GOES .. THERE TOO GOES THE WORD OF GOD
