Where do we throw the bones?

88/100 #SoWillI #Inspired

I visited my sister the other day and we had chicken. Our goal was to clear the pans and plates because it was very delicious. My son was not left behind, he held on to a bone for sometime. Once we were done all the bones were collected and I asked, ‘Where do we throw the bones?’ my niece jokingly said, ‘Prophesy like Ezekiel!’ Now, what if I told you that a few minutes later, the bones turned back into a whole chicken and jumped out of the garbage bin? Impossible! Right?

Now, that’s what Ezekiel witnessed, and it was not with chicken, it was humans!! He saw bones coming back to life! Ezekiel 37: 1-14 records what happens at the valley of dry bones! God told Ezekiel to prophesy. He did. A miracle happened.

 “So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.  I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’”  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.” (7-10)

There’s nothing as dead as bones, the entire flesh is out, there’s almost nothing left! But they came back to life, because NOTHING is impossible with God. He is the resurrection and the life. When we are standing in a valley full of very dry bones, let us believe that in Jesus’ Name, they can live again. Yes, those dry bones can hear the word of God!

The world is loud: It is sometimes very hard to mute the negativity, the expert advice, the acceptable things, the noise! The voices are too many, and we sometimes allow them to take over the voice of God. They will tell you how impossible it is, and even give you examples and scientific illustrations. They will discourage you from speaking life and make you walk away in despair. They will make you doubt God’s word and quench down your faith. We believe the news, we believe other books, and forget to believe every word that comes from the mouth of God. Dead bones came into life. Is there anything too hard for the Lord? Do you believe you can live again? Do you believe things can turn around for your good? Now speak!

What is your impossible situation? Speak! Prophesy! When you feel cut off, dried up and all your hope is gone… SPEAK LIFE! God is able to do the unimaginable; He is still in the business of performing miracles. Whatever is lost in darkness can be prophesied back. So, speak! Prophesy in that hopelessness. In that situation causing you sleepless nights, stand up and declare life! God is able. He is not limited by anyone or anything. As the spirit leads you, prophecy, and you will see life.

So anytime you see any kind of bones, be reminded that with God all things are possible.
