The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.” (Ez. 37:1-4)
There are those times we face impossible situations. Those times we are looking over a valley of dry bones. Those times when we think the dream is dead. We see hope gone. We see the “faith” we had just simply… gone… evaporated. It’s not a matter of “perhaps” anymore.
But God has Ezekiel over that valley looking at the impossible and asking a very crazy question, “What do you think? Can these bones live?”
Give credit to Ezekiel. I would have said, “You have GOT to be crazy!”
Ezekiel said, “Lord, you alone know.”
He was ready for anything, which is great, because the Lord then had him PROPHESY over the dead bones.
What a sight. Ezekiel standing over a valley of parched bones prophesying LIFE into an impossible situation.
We need those levels of obedience in our lives. We need those levels of boldness in our lives. It is time to speak boldly what the Lord has declared in your heart for your life, your church, your city, your family…
It is time to hear the word of the Lord, and speak it.
I am in a place now where things are moving forward with our church, but every day I am waking up with words the Lord has me declare with freedom and boldness. He is asking me to pray this victory all the way home. It is time for a boldness that looks past the physical situation to what the Lord can truly DO in our lives, in our church, in our city.
There is an abundance that is there for my church. There is a harvest. There is an abundant blessing. The enemy won’t rise up and take this away.
Those are the kinds of things the Lord has me declaring every morning this week. It is time to speak LIFE and see what God alone can do.
