“Where would you have me read this morning, Lord?”
“Go to Ezekiel 37, I want to show you something.”
So I began reading in verse one where the power of the Lord came on Ezekiel and carried him to a valley that was filled with dry bones. Then the Lord asks, “Can these bones live?” Stop right there! Let me ask you what impossible thing you’re facing right now? I want you to close your eyes, see that thing in your mind, whatever it is, no matter how dead it is to you, the Lord is asking you the same question He asked Ezekiel all those many years ago. “Can this dry, dead dream, this business idea, this disease in your body, this unsaved spouse, this wayward child, this empty bank account still live?”
Ezekiel 37:4-7, Then he said to me, “Speak to these bones for me. Tell them, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Lord God says to you: I will cause breath to come into you, and you will come to life! I will put sinew and muscles on you, and I will cover you with skin. Then I will put breath in you, and you will come back to life! Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”
So I spoke to the bones for the Lord, as he said. I was still speaking, when I heard the loud noise. The bones began to rattle, and bone joined together with bone!
Here’s the key, my dear weary warrior; you need a word from the Lord and you need to speak it over your situation. Then allow your spirit to hear the bones rattle as they come together for indeed, NOTHING is too hard for God. To prophesy is merely proclaiming what God says. You have His Word, begin to use it by speaking it over your body, your finances, your children, your husband, your home. Trust me when I say I’ve seen it happen over every area I just mentioned. Sometimes it happened suddenly, sometimes it happened over time, but if you keep listening, you’ll hear the bones rattle as they come together because your situation MUST respond to the Word. Everything is subject to the Word of God.
Verse 9: Then the Lord said to me, “Speak to the wind for me. Son of man, speak to the wind for me. Tell the wind that this is what the Lord God says: ‘Wind, come from every direction and breathe air into these dead bodies! Breathe into them and they will come to life again!’”
Right now I speak to the wind, come from every direction and breathe life into every dead and dormant dream, every discouraged saint, every rebellious child, every unfaithful spouse, every home in foreclosure, every dried up bank account, every body ravaged by sickness, every stressed out and burdened pastor, COME TO LIFE AGAIN! I declare this is the day for hope to arise in the hearts of believers everywhere, those who will allow Your Spirit to come in power, to fill them up to overflow onto their families, their work places, that they will go in power and demonstration into their neighborhoods and cities. I speak to every elderly person who feel they have no purpose, DECLARE THE WORD OF THE LORD! You’re not dead yet! As long as you have breath, use it to prophesy today. In Jesus name, you’ve been commissioned for purpose, now go and do it.
