Dry Bones

He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.’ ” So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew 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 the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.” ’ ” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.
Ezekiel 37:3‭-‬10 NASB

If you are reading this today you are among the living. But are you really?

We are but dry bones without the Spirit of the living God in us. By the Word of God we come to life. By His work in us we come to know Him as our Lord.

This morning I felt slain. I write these devotions in the evening prior to posting them. My bones were dry last evening. This morning as I am getting my morning coffee a thought comes to mind, “Dry Bones”. Isn’t God amazing?
As my husband often says, “Our God is a fourth quarter God”. Why? Because sometimes we depend upon ourselves in this game of life and we forget that God is the coach. When our eyes turn back to Him and live His Word He gives life to dry bones.

🌹 And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house.
Ezekiel 43:5 NASB

Continually Seeking Him,
