The Valley of Dry Bones.

Ezekiel 37:1-10 is a passage about the power of God's Word and how it can bring life to seemingly dead situations. It's a passage that speaks to our experiences with hopelessness, disappointment, and despair—cases in which we feel there is no way out. But this passage reminds us that God's Word can breathe life into even these dead places.


This passage begins with an image of dry bones scattered across a valley. God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy over them and ask what seemed impossible: "Can these bones live again?" Even though the answer seems obvious—no—God doesn't stop there. He commands Ezekiel to prophesy a second time, and the bones come together, flesh and skin cover them, and they are given breath—a physical sign of life.


The image of dry bones returning to life gives this passage a powerful message about the power of God's Word. It reminds us that no matter how difficult our situation may seem when we turn to God's Word in faith and obedience, He can bring new life into our lives. We can be sure that no matter what is happening in our lives or around us if it is according to His will, nothing is impossible with God.


The dry bones in Ezekiel 37:1-10 also speak to another way in which God brings new life: through His Spirit. Just as the Lord brought life back to the dry bones through His Word, He can get spiritual life back to us by the power of His Holy Spirit. When we turn to Him in faith and obedience, we can experience the newness of life that comes with salvation.


So as we read this passage, let's remember that God is a God of wonders who has given us His Word and Spirit so that we may experience eternal life with Him now and always! May God bless you all as you continue to seek after Him and learn more about His incredible power! Amen.
