When you think of the words, ‘come alive,’ what do you think of? A valley of dry bones? Someone coming back from the dead? Or maybe someone trying to come back from an emotional, physical, mental pain.
Let’s go back to Ezekiel 37:1-14, where the Prophet Ezekiel prophesied to the valley of dry bones. He had a vision of a valley filled with dry bones and God told him to prophesy to the bones. As he did what God commanded him to do the bones began to shake. Imagine that. You having a vision and you see dry bones everywhere. Just imagine being in Ezekiel shoes and what he must have felt when that happened.
The dry bones were the people of Israel, God spoke life into them and brought them back to their land. this chapter is God’s future restoration of Israel. Take this event and I would say compare it to a situation where you were broken down or dry bones. Then someone prophesies to you, telling you that what God said will happen. In order for that to happen, you have to come alive. Just like it was God’s future to restore Israel, It’s his future to restore your life again.
God spoke life back into the dry bones so why can’t you let him do the same in your life? Every day you try to fight and live through it all but you cannot handle all of it. Ezekiel would not know what to say if he did not have God on his side. The dry bones did not come alive again on their own, no, by God’s command through the Prophet Ezekiel they came alive. I know that some of you may be going through things but don’t you think it’s time for you to come alive again. Finish what God has planned for you even when you starting to become dry bones.
It’s amazing to read about God’s miraculous wonders and to experience them in our lives. God wants the dead hearts to come alive again, he does not want to see what he has created gone to waste. God cares enough for us to not give up on living, to not be like the dry bones in the valley. I pray that each and every one of you come alive again. As in the words of Lauren Daigle,
”As we call out to dry bones come alive, come alive
We call out to dead hearts come alive, come alive
Out of the ashes, we see an army rise
We call out to dry bones come alive.”
Live life again no matter what. Do not be just bones, let God speak life into you again. Be blessed everyone!!!!!!
