Are We Speaking to the Dry Places in Our Life?

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" And I answered, "O Lord GOD, you know." Then 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, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the LORD." So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had 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 may live." So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then he said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, 'Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.' Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will open your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the LORD." (EZE. 37: 1-14-ESV)   

As I read and reread these scriptures, I pondered in my own heart and wondered how many dry places in my own life I am speaking to. For those of us who are Christians and confessing God’s word and Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives, we have the authority and right to speak to the dry places in our lives and they should come to life, if we believe that which we speak. Beloved Gods desire is for us to speak to the dead bones and they shall live and know that it is God. I know for a fact that it is difficult for us to imagine just speaking to anything and getting an instant reaction. This can happen if our faith is strong enough to believe it. It does not matter who we are, what we have done, where we have been or where we are going. The word of God says; For there is no respect of persons with God (Rom. 2:11- KJV). Remember Ezekiel said in verse 2 that the bones were very dry. Would we even make an attempt to raise anything in our lives that we thought was very dry? This brought to my mind eating a piece of dry chicken; we all know that it is very hard to get down and not tasty even if we had it at home. However, is there or would there be anything that we could do to change the taste of this chicken, would we even try? I choose that as an example because it was the only thing at the time that I could think of that would be hard to alter its taste. But, if we try, it can and was altered. We could add some oil to it, reheat it with barbecue sauce, or put it in gravy or a pasta dish .God spoke to Ezekiel and gave him a command and immediately Ezekiel began to perform it. Are we willing to do the same thing? If God were to send us to a valley of dry dead bones, what reaction would we have? It is my belief that we would begin instantaneously to complain not only about the smell, but the heat. We would want to know why we are here in a valley of dead bones with no one else with us or around us. I believe that neither of us would even think that our assignment was to speak to some dry dead bones, and even if we did, do we really expect them to live? What are we expecting God to do for us or in us, are we expecting anything? Because faith is an act, we must learn to act upon what the word says. First and foremost, we must take God at His word and trust Him to fulfill it. As the scripture continues; So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them. But there was no breath in them.( EZE. 37:7-8-ESV) Ezekiel saw what he spoke coming to life in front of his face, the scripture does not say that he was frightened, ran away or could not believe that the bones were coming together.     If God allowed Ezekiel to see dry bones come together, he will and can do the same thing for us. Sometimes God desires for us to stretch our faith and speak to some dead things in our lives and see them resurrected before our very eyes. God did not create us to live in poverty that is our choice we allow fear to shut us down, hold our hands and entrap us. Remember fear is only false evidence appearing real. We must stop allowing the enemy to speak to our heads and convenience us that what we desire will never come to pass. If our victory depended on us, then we would be in trouble, however, thank God it does not. Jesus paid the price for us to have victorious lives a long time ago. When we pray and ask God for something, He immediately goes to work on it, we just need to continue to thank Him for it even when the manifestation is not immediate. For Ezekiel, his was instant gratification that was visible for him to see. God knew that Ezekiel could handle that so, that is why He allowed it to happened so quickly. Beloved, God knows what you and I can handle so we must continue to trust Him for total provision and continual supply. We cannot afford to stop speaking to our dry places and allow the enemy to continue to kill, steal and destroy us. It is time for each of us to take our rightful places and let the enemy know he is defeated, not us.
