“He asked me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ I said, ‘O Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’ Then he said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘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.” (Ezekiel 37:3-5)
“It’s hopeless.” “Forget about it.” “There’s nothing that can be done.” When was the last time you looked at a situation and said, “It’s hopeless.”
A valley full of dead, dry bones. That’s what Ezekiel saw. Can you think of anything more hopeless than that?
But notice what God does. God’s Word changes everything. God’s Word brings life and hope. God’s Word turns a valley of dry bones into a vast army of living and breathing people!
The Israelites were feeling like a bunch of dry bones, feeling like their situation was hopeless. But God has news for them. Their situation is NOT hopeless. Why not? Because GOD is with them! God can do anything! God’s Word changes everything!
If God can take someone dead and lifeless in sin like you and me and bring us to new spiritual life through faith in Jesus as our Savior, He can do anything!
Why be hopeless? Why feel like a bunch of dry bones? God is with you! God can do anything! God can bring life from death! He did so with Jesus and through faith He’s done so with you!
Living with hope from God, just like you,
