Text: Ezekiel 37:11-14
Our Lord You are the resurrection and the life, You are the great and mighty restorer. We adore You and magnify Your Holy name.
Father we thank You for the gift of life, thank You for the glorious future ahead of us.
The dialogue between God and Ezekiel in the text is quite interesting and might be familiar. To paraphrase in a current context. My people are complaining that some very important things such as marriages, careers, finances, and ministry are dried up and their hope is gone, their dreams are cut off. Then God asserts and declares that He will open the graves were these matters have been buried and He will bring the people and even our nation from their low places to the great purpose he had ordained for them.
Brethren as it was with the dry bones and the children of Israel, so it will be for us, The Spirit of God will revive us and restore us in the mighty name of Jesus.
Be rest assured that our current state will not define us, we are destined for greater and better things and we will manifest same in Jesus name. Ezekiel 36:11 affirms this by reiterating God’s promise to treat us better that He has ever done.
Our Hope is restored as those dry bones situations in our lives are coming back to life. Very quickly, let us touch on 3 divine enablers that activate the back to life transformation we seek concerning those situations.
1. The Word of God.
The dry bones (those challenging/comatose situations) hear the Word of God as we see in Ezekiel 37:4. Also see the Word of God being sent to heal us and pull us back from the brink of death and destruction (Psalm 107:20). Brethren what Word of God are we standing upon concerning that comatose situation; it is a sure remedy for us to apply the Word.
2. The Holy Spirit.
The breath that came upon the dry bones in Ezekiel 37:9 and brought life represents the Holy Spirit as we all know. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit we live. I love verse 14 of the same passage: “and shall put my spirit in you and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then you shall know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord”.
3. The Body of Christ.
We are told in Hebrews 10:25 not to forsake the assembly of the brethren we are meant to be encouraging ourselves when we get into those moments of despair. Unity amongst believers is much a potent and powerful tool , Ezekiel 37:17-28 depicts the uniting of the 2 kingdoms of Israel and their becoming a formidable force not to be oppressed by their foes. Ezekiel 36:33-38 speaks to restoration on account of unity of the Church. Together we can accomplish much in lifting up ourselves.
To partake of the reversal of the dryness or restoration of life to the dead situations, we must be children of God. Please if you are not please surrender your life to Jesus now.
1. Father please have mercy on us and forgive us our sins in Jesus name.
2. Any good thing in our lives that has died, may the wind from the four corners of the earth resurrect them in Jesus name.
3. Father as we call upon you in the order of Ps 118:5, please set us in a large place in Jesus name.
4. We declare that our marriages, careers, businesses, finances, Godly dreams and visions, the gifts and callings of God upon our lives will live in Jesus name.
5. Father please let our dry gounds turn into water springs as promised in Jeremiah 17:7-8 in Jesus name.
6. Our personal prayer requests.
