Dry Bones?

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.’ ”
Ezekiel 37:5‭-‬6 NASB

I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life,
Ezekiel 37:14a NASB

Wouldn’t it be wonderful for God to use us to make His name known? One day everyone will know that God is Lord! His name will be known despite us!

I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord.” ’
Ezekiel 38:23 NASB

“My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
Ezekiel 39:7 NASB

🌹Do we want to miss out on the joy, the intimacy, the awe and wonder of God’s work, the strength, peace, and understanding of the Holy One? Are we shining the Light, Jesus, in the world or are we dry bones needing revived?
I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord.” ’
Ezekiel 38:23 NASB

1 John 3:9-10

No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone (everyone) who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.
1 John 3:9‭-‬10 NASB

Holy God, thank You for the life I now live,  born of You. Born again, not of blood nor by the will of the flesh nor the will of man but by Your glorious will, God. I praise You for giving me the gift of seeing Your kingdom O God!!!
By Your righteousness in me I am able to practice righteousness confirming I am born of You my God. What joy, contentment, and peace I have knowing I am Your child. Hallelujah,  I am a child of God through belief in Jesus Christ my Savior and the ability to practice righteousness in my life. Holy Spirit testify with my spirit that I am a child of God so I will never be led or lead others astray to the ways of the devil.
And I pray God that I will walk and live in Your Light loving my fellow brothers and sisters and encourage them to practice righteousness and not be deceived by walking in the darkness of the devil, by not loving our brothers and sisters. What great love You have bestowed upon us O God, calling us Your children. May we honor you by living for your glory, amen.

1 John 2:9-11

The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:9‭-‬11 NASB

🌹Jesus, Light of my life. I praise Your presence in my life and thank You for opening my eyes to see the Light of the gospel of Your glory, the image of God.
Lord God, You have purified me from my sin. Under Your guidance and instruction I will
apply all diligence in my faith, supplying  moral excellence, and in my moral excellence, knowledge, and in my knowledge, self-control, and in my self-control, perseverance, and in my perseverance, godliness, and in my godliness, brotherly kindness, and in my brotherly kindness, love. I pray these qualities are in me and are increasing so they will neither render me useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of You, my Lord Jesus Christ. Without these qualities I would be blind, walking in darkness. Let me never forget the purification from sin nor Your fellowship,  Jesus. Those who walk in darkness do not know where they are going for the darkness has blinded them.  I shall walk in Your Light without stumbling for You abide in me. Because You abide in me, I can love my brother/sister. To and for Your glory I pray, amen.

1 John 2:7-8

Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.
1 John 2:7‭-‬8 NASB

God, Your commandment of old to love one another has been a difficult task as evidenced in Your word. Division, war, deceit have separated Your people from one another and from You. The commandment to love one another diminished to the point of needing renewal mant times.
Now a new commandment has been given to love one another. A love demonstrated my Your Son, Jesus Christ. He was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. We all, Lord God, were formerly darkness, but now we, Your children, are Light in Jesus; because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining!! God, I pray we walk as children of Light so the world will know we are Your disciples because of our love for one another. As we love one another by the love of Christ in us Jesus grows brighter and brighter and the darkness passes away. Help me to love as You love, Jesus, so Your Light shines to a dark and needy world. May Your love abound in me I pray, amen.
John 13:34‭/John 1:9/Ephesians 5:8/John 13:35 NASB

1 John 1:6-7

If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:6‭-‬7 NASB

I once heard it said that doctors are not perfect and that is why they are in medical “practice”.
I can relate to that. I am not perfect so I only “practice” the truth of God. After all God does say, “They who practice truth comes to the Light”. And when we do, Hallelujah, our deeds are revealed as having been performed in God. Did you catch that little word “IN”? So let us, house of God, walk in the light of the Lord, in fellowship with one another, bringing glory to our God.
John 3:21/Isaiah 2:5 NASB

Thanks be to You, my God, who always leads in triumph in Christ, and manifests, through Your beloved people, the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Jesus in every place.
God, may I always testify in Your Holy Spirit the truth in Christ with an attitude in myself which was also in Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Glory, glory, Hallelujah!! Amen.

1 John 1:5

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:5 NASB

O Lord my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain. My soul will bless You, Lord! God, You are Light in whom there is no darkness and no variation or shifting shadow. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from You, the Father of lights! Father, thank You for sending Jesus, the Light that dwelt amongst mankind. Direct me to walk in the light so darkness will not overtake me; for I know that the one who walks in darkness does not know where he goes. May I walk according to Your commandments until Your appearing, Lord Jesus Christ, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To You be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.

Proclaim the Light

Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it,
“I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you, And I will appoint you as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,
To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the dungeon And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.
Isaiah 42:5‭-‬7 NASB

Jesus, Light of the world, I will arise and shine for Your light has come and Your glory has risen before me. In Your hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind yet Your Light shone in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it. You are the Lord God, who upholds my right hand, Who says to me, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’
I pray for Your chosen people, a royal priesthood, a people for Your own possession, that we will be bold in proclaiming the excellencies of You who called us out of darkness into Your marvelous Light. Spirit of God who made me, breath of the Almighty who gives me life; Spirit of the Lord God be upon me, anoint me to bring good news to the afflicted; to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners by Your Almighty power. In Your name and for Your glory Lord God, amen.
Isaiah 60:1/Job 12:10/Isaiah 41:13/

John 1:5/1 Peter 2:9/Job 33:4/Isaiah 61:1 NASB

🌹Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. They will say of Me, ‘Only in the Lord are righteousness and strength.’ Men will come to Him, And all who were angry at Him will be put to shame. In the Lord all the offspring of Israel Will be justified and will glory.”

Is My Lamp Still Lit?

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
John 8:12 NASB

Do you have have the Light of Life, Jesus Christ?

Jesus, I no longer want to walk in darkness, I surrender my life to follow You, the Light of my life. Amen.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:14‭-‬16 NASB


Jesus, You have made Your own a light in  this world. Let my life shine in this world in such a way that others may see the true Light and glorify the Father in heaven. For Your glory I ask, amen.

“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light.
Luke 8:16 NASB

Lord God, may I shine the light of salvation to everyone I come in contact with. When my light flickers from fear, embolden me Lord that I may shine even brighter with the light of the gospel so others may know the true Light, Jesus Christ. For Your glory, amen!!

Listen and Heed

Listen and give heed, do not be haughty, For the Lord has spoken.
Give glory to the Lord your God, Before He brings darkness And before your feet stumble On the dusky mountains, And while you are hoping for light He makes it into deep darkness, And turns it into gloom.
But if you will not listen to it, My soul will sob in secret for such pride; And my eyes will bitterly weep And flow down with tears, Because the flock of the Lord has been taken captive.
This is your lot, the portion measured to you From Me,” declares the Lord, “Because you have forgotten Me And trusted in falsehood.
Jeremiah 13:15‭-‬17‭, ‬25 NASB

🌹I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud And your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”
