DRY BONES IN THE VALLEY
by Saundra Washington
11/28/2010 / Christian Living
He asked me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" I said, "O Sovereign Lord, you alone know." This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you and you will come to life. Ezekiel 37:3-5.
For many people, life has become as dull and despairing as death. We suffer from spiritual inertia. We have allowed ourselves to be paralyzed by shallow beliefs and shackled by the strong chains of discouragement. We have permitted the sacred and holy to be eclipsed by the secular and profane. Hearts that were once lively and carefree have suddenly become heavy. Men who were once optimistic have become pessimistic. Many who were once willing to greet tomorrow with a cheer, now regard the future with nervous anxiety.
Not only have many of us lost confidence in our world, but we have also lost faith in ourselves and in God. We have become like zombiescarcasses with no life, dry bones in the valley, the walking dead. Dead, but not dead dead, if you will. The body is alive, but void of spirituality; form without substance.
If we want life, we must come to the awareness that in order to cope with life's many complexities, life itself demands we draw meaning for our life from something greater within and beyond our selfa higher Source. That Source of power that satisfies and enables victorious living is known as God. When the breath of Almighty God moves in upon us, new life is restored to dry bones. When He blows, we are enabled to keep going even when we feel we cannot take another step. His breath takes away the dimness of our soul and kindles an eternal flame within our very being.
When the wind of God's Spirit blowsbones move. Allow the wind of God's Spirit to infuse you with His quickening power and LIVE.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! Click here and TRUST JESUS NOW
