If you listen to some people long enough, they will confide in you about all of the situations in their lives, good or bad.
However, today, I want to focus on the “dry bones” circumstances these people reveal to others.
Are you one of them? Do you have arid issues in your life that are positioned in “the floor of the valley” (Ezekiel 37:2)? Are you sharing your issues with others hoping they can lead you to an answer? Well, this is your blessed day.
The dry bones in our lives seem hopeless. Dead. Abandoned. Useless. Painful. Irritating. Unforgiveable.
Nonetheless, the Lord is asking you to look at each of those “dry bones” because He has great need of them.
In Ezekiel 37 (NIV), the Spirit of the Lord took Ezekiel, the prophet, in the middle of a valley that had numerous dry bones.
Then the Lord asked him, “Son of man, can these bones live?” (verse 3) Ezekiel wisely answered, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”
Now, instead of the Lord shouting prophecies, instead He asked the prophet to prophesy to the dry bones.
The Lord commanded Ezekiel to say, “Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord’” (verses 4-6).
Do you see that? The Lord will challenge you to speak to those dry areas in your life. Yes, you! He wants you to open your mouth and prophesy God’s will concerning your life.
Just imagine that your circumstances have “ears” to hear, but they can only respond to the Word of the Lord.
Your dead problems are waiting to hear you say, “The Sovereign Lord will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. He is causing tendons and flesh to be attached to you, DRY BONES! Then you will know He is Lord.”
The moment Ezekiel began to prophesy, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together. There were also tendons, flesh, and skin all over the bones, but there was no breath in them (verse 8).
“So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army” (verse 10).
