TOPIC: Have Faith, Your Dried Bones Shall Live!

TEXT: Ezekiel 37:1-14 (NKJV)

The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it [was] full of bones.
Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, [there were] very many in the open valley; and indeed [they were] very dry.
And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.”
Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
‘Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.
“I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I [am] the LORD.” ‘ “
So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.
Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but [there was] no breath in them.
Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” ‘ “
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’
“Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
“Then you shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves.
“I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken [it] and performed [it,”] says the LORD.’ “

God took prophet Ezekiel on a journey of assurance of deliverance of the nation of Israel. Ezekiel went with God to the valley of dried bones (what the world would term impossible). God was determined to raise His nation Israel back to life; He also wanted to be sure of their readiness and commitment to the coming miracle. Their prophet must build the kind of faith that shows they could be delivered. The faith of Ezekiel was important because he would lead the prophecy of the freedom of his people and he had faith in the sovereignty of God throughout the journey. His response to God’s question; “Son of man, can these bones live?” was “O Lord GOD, you know” and this showed he was not in doubt of the sovereignty God – the One who is capable of making the impossible possible! The prophet had a simple faith in God. He listened to the command and order of God, and carried out God’s instructions sincerely and the bones came alive.

Faith in God can increase our obedience to His words, and our obedience can as well build a stronger and undoubting faith in God. Faith is critical for transformation; you will need a simple faith to move mountains, surmount obstacles, break new grounds, live fulfilled and raise your hope alive. No matter the intensity of your situation, no matter the hopelessness of your condition, you have Jesus who resurrected and has the power to raise to life. He will make you live again! Only accept and develop a strong faith in Him. Your dried bones shall live again!

PRAYER: Rise and pray for your total deliverance from sin, Satan and death. Prophesy life into your situation in Jesus’ Name.
