“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord
and set me down in the middle of the valley, it was full of bones. And He led me
around among them, and behold, they were very dry.
And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, “O Lord God,
Then He said to me, Prophesy over these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear
the word of the Lord. ”
I was so encouraged by this passage of scripture this week. I can identify with the valley of dry bones!
I know what you are thinking, “don’t you mean you can identify with what Ezekiel was doing Rolain?”
No, I mean it, I can identify with what YAH showed Ezekiel!
I know there are dormant places in my life that are “very dry”. There are dead areas in my
life that need awakening, what about you?
The prophet was taken to a land full of dry bones, very dry bones and was asked a question,
“Son of man, can these bones live?”
I believe the Lord was speaking to me through this verse. “Can these bones live?”
“Can the dead areas in my life be revived anew?”
“Can the dormant things in my life rise?”
If you are feeling the same way and asking the same questions, the answer is yes,
These bones can live again!!
The dead areas in your life can come to life….
After asking Ezekiel the question YAH told him to prophesy to the dry bones.
Always remember that before YAH did anything, He spoke it out first. That’s the pattern
we see in the word. He always spoke what He was going to do before He actually did it.
Our words are powerful like we can’t believe. We need to learn to speak more, to prophesy
over situations in our lives. Complaining and grumbling about what’s happening in
our lives will not help our situation, it will only make it worse.
There is one more part to this story I want to share. Let’s look at another scripture,
“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 indeed cut off.’
Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open
your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will bring you into
the land of Israel.”
Ezekiel 37:11, 12
Where it seemed like there was no hope, the Lord assured them He was with them.
There seemed like there was no way but they were wrong, the Lord would make a
way for them. They were not cut off as they thought. The Lord loved them and would save
We have hope friends….as long as the Lord is with us, we have hope.
No matter how dead a situation is, the Lord can and will revive it. He is the God who
lets dry bones live again! It’s time to speak up. The enemy wants us silent because
he knows what our words backed up by YAH’s word can do!
Have a great weekend to you all!
