Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?” “O Sovereign LORD,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.” 4 Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, “Dry bones, listen to the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! 6 I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 37:3-6, NLT)
In continuation of yesterday’s post I want to look at verses 3-6. Once Ezekiel was placed in the center of dry bones, he then needed revelation and instruction on what to do about it. God’s instruction was to prophecy life into the dry bones.
Our natural eye sees death and dry bones when God sees life and a vibrant future. The instructions God gives us don’t always make sense if we are looking with our natural eye. We may see a situation that, in the natural, is clearly dead but God sees what is meant to be. We must look with spiritual eyes. We must see through eyes of Christ, He doesn’t see just where you are, He sees where you are going. When you can see where you are going it makes it easier to speak life into dry bones.
Every dead, dry season we encounter, whether in our own life or someone else’s, we must have a prophetic revelation of life and then apply the instructions God gives us in order to see breath come back into the dry season.
God’s going to set you in the midst of some dry bones, don’t get discouraged, look for His revelation and instruction on how to speak life in the valley.
