In the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, the Lord brought Ezekiel to the valley of dry bones. Now, this valley of dry bones can run parallel to some situations in your life. Some stale situations that you need God to make alive for you.
Looking in this third verse, God asks Ezekiel a question, but it is Ezekiel’s response that I want you to pay close attention to.
Ezekiel 37:3 – And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
Ezekiel told the Lord, “I don’t know, but you do.” At that point he had taken his eyes off of the problem and was looking only to God.
At times, we miss the supernatural because we want to answer the Lord with scriptures or how we think we can solve the problem instead of listening to God to give us the solution. Remember what Jehoshaphat told the Lord when those armies came against him in 2 Chronicles 20. He told the Lord, we don’t know what to do but our eyes are on you. And surely, God delivered him.
On your own, read through both Ezekiel 37 and 2 Chronicles 20. You will see that as soon as, both Ezekiel and Jehoshaphat admitted to God that they didn’t have the answer, God gave them the right answer to make something supernatural happen. The right answer to solve their dilemma. But they had to admit, “I don’t know.”
What dilemmas are you dealing with today? Will you ever get a breakthrough from that stressful situation? Will you ever be healed from this disease? Do you need a creative miracle? A new organ? Spiritual provision of money?
The answer is: Oh Lord God Thou Knowest.
