As I reflected on Ezekiel 37:1-14, my Beloved LORD GOD showed me that it was not just the middle of any valley, HE brought HIS prophet Ezekiel to. This valley was quiet literally an open graveyard full of very dry, fragmented bones (Eze 37:7). These bones represented how the nation of Israel felt; empty, hopeless and helpless (Eze 37:11). But there is nothing impossible with HIM, even in death HE calls forth life. By HIS WORD a valley of fragmented, dry bones, came to life and became an exceedingly great army (Eze 37:10).
There are numerous examples throughout The BIBLE where HIS WORD brought forth life out of death. In Genesis the deadness of a 90 year old woman’s womb brought forth a son (Rom 4:19-20, Gen 17:15-17,Gen 21:1-7). In Kings and Luke sons were returned to mothers (1 Kin 17:8-24, 2 Kin 4:8-37, Luk 7:12-15). In Mark a daughter was given back to her parents (Mrk 5:35-43). In John a brother was called from the tomb (Jhn 11:1-44). In Acts a kind and generous godly woman was restored to life (Act 9:36-42)…
HE is the same yesterday, today and forever! (Heb 13:8) When you trust in HIM, you will not be disappointed (Psa 22:4-5). HE can breathe life back into those dreams, hopes and promises that seem long dead.
Keep your eyes on HIM; from your innermost being, live a life that is pleasing to HIM; and trust HIM for HIS timing and outcome.
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
The LORD’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For HIS compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is YOUR faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I have hope in HIM.”
The LORD is good to those who wait for HIM,
To the person who seeks HIM.
