God can breathe life into whatever and whomever He chooses…thankfully, He mercifully and graciously chose you.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Ezekiel 37:3 - Then he asked me, "Son of man, can these bones become living people again?"
Read - Ezekiel 37-39
When in a tough season (even if self-inflicted) it is easy to believe that we will never find life, peace or happiness again. Israel was in such a condition yet God gave them a ‘next opportunity’ when He would breathe new life into them as a nation. The same power that rose Jesus from the grave did that and that same power is made available to You in Christ. So, don’t doubt or become discouraged. As God saw this nation as a valley of dry bones that needed Him to breathe life into it…He can see your plight and has the same life available.
Lord, I will trust that You will restore and reconcile me in Christ.
Ezekiel 37:22 speaks to ‘One King who will rule them all’. This nation that would be given new life had a purpose. It was to bring about a King…not just for Israel but for the World. Not just for a season but for eternity. This King would be in the line of David (verse 24) and would usher in peace (26). This King would dwell among them (John 1 + Ezekiel 37:27). This King is Jesus - God the Son. These things would be accomplished by His perfect life, sacrificial death and powerful resurrection on the third day. When we trust in this King Jesus we can be mended of all the marring of sin…not just once but for good and forever. Have you followed the King?
