Ezekiel 37:1 -5 – The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
For many, many years the Body of Christ has been very dry. We are supposed to be experiencing what the early church experienced in the book of Acts. We shut God out from doing what He wants to do for us because we are holding on so tight to to our religion, tradition, and how we think things should be. God does not operate that way and we cannot determine or direct His movement!
You see, religion and tradition are negative spiritual gravity that keeps you out of the real presence of God. They are substitutes for the real Spiritual things of God and it causes us not to see miracles, signs, and wonders like we should.
In the passage above, God shows us how we can resurrect from being so dry. God took those dry bones and gave them life. He took something that seemed impossible and made it invincible. Wouldn’t you like that to happen to your situation?
Well, you’ll need these four things:
- The hand of the Lord
- You are going to have to be carried in the Spirit (Spiritual direction)
- The Lord will have to show you how dry you really are (you’ll never see it until the Lord shows you)
- You will have to know that you cannot do it on your own. (The Lord will only speak to somebody that knows they can’t do it on their own.
God is trying to supernaturally deliver you from some of the things that you have been dealing with for far too long. But, if you allow yourself to stay dry, you’ll miss out! Ask God to reveal your dry spots to you and then allow Him to resurrect you in those areas!
