Text: Ezekiel 37:1-14
You are a ‘project’ in the hand of God. You are a ‘work’that must be completed.
An uncompleted building is not only unfit for purpose but also uncomfortable. It may cause the gainsayers to mock the builder. (Luke 14:28-30). God is at work in you and you will not be a mockery, in Jesus name.
Here is the full text of Ezekiel 37:1-14.
“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. 2 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. 3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”
4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 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.”’”
7 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. 8 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.
9 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.”’” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
11 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!’ 12 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. 13 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. 14 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.’”
A corpse is nor better than the dry bones. There must be life in all your endeavours. In Jesus name. (Psalm 138:8)
All impossible situations must change from now, in Jesus name. Let the power of God to heal fall upon you, in Jesus name.
You must speak the word of God to your life and situations. The word of God will transform those difficult situations that are at work in and around you. Don’t speak your fears, speak the word of God. It must conform to your expectation (according to the will of God). Jer. 32:27.
Don’t speak once, keep speaking the word of God into your life and situations. That was the command to Ezekiel then and it is to you now.
God is faithful. Trust him. (Zechariah 4:6), (Psalm 125:1-3).
God bless you.
