“Then He said to me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say,
Our bones are dried up and our hope is lost; we are completely cut off. Therefore prophesy and
say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold I will open your graves and cause you to come up
out of your graves, O My people; and I will bring you [back home] to the land of Israel.
And you shall know that I am the Lord [your sovereign Ruler], when I have opened your graves
and caused you to come up out of your graves, O My people.”
I love reading the story of the dry bones coming to life. But I love it even more now because I saw
something I hadn’t seen before. In the scripture above God tells Ezekiel the meaning of what just
happened. The Israelite’s had lost hope. They thought they were doomed.
But God wanted them to know that hope was not lost even in the bleakest of circumstances.
They thought all hope was lost,
“Behold, they say, Our bones are dried up and our hope is lost; we are completely cut off.”
But hope was not lost.
Are you in a place where you have lost all hope? Are you in a place of despair, in a place where you
can’t see a way out. I am writing this to tell you that it’s not over. As dark as things seem
the Lord will make a way for you. Don’t be afraid to hope again.
The Lord will breath life into your dead situation. You will live again.
The Lord is not going to sit idly by as the enemy kills, steals and destroys.
There is hope for you friend!
The Lord asked Ezekiel a very important question in the valley of very dry bones;
“Son of man, can these bones live?
The answer to that was a resounding yes! The dry bones would live again. You will live again!
Hope in the Lord today. Your situation is not hopeless. The Lord is turning it around.
“Thus says the Lord God; Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your
graves, O My people”
Don’t abandon hope. Put all of your trust in Him and see Him do the impossible in your life.
Watch Him bring the dead back to life and turn darkness to light in your life.
Bless you friends
