Ezekiel 37:1-14; The Dry Bones Live

Are you facing a time in your life where situations seem hopeless and the troubles you face seem to continue for too long?  

Are you surveying scattered bones around you in a valley, your hopes and dreams slain and left to dry up unburied on a battlefield? 

You are in the Valley of the Dry Bones and, fear not, there is a great hope and good news in this place.  

Here are 6 Helpful Tips For Surviving a Season Of Darkness:

1. Trust God

Firstly, know that God has set you down in the valley . 

Just as Ezekiel was brought to the Valley of the Dry Bones in a vision, believe that God has brought you to the valley that you are facing. 

God has a purpose for this situation, and he will lead you through it, but you must trust God to direct you .

2. Do Not Limit the Power of God

Do not limit God’s power in your life by declaring, “This cannot be done!” 

You may be in a place where you can’t see a way out but resist the urge to complain or speak defeat over your situation.  Just like Ezekiel, put the power in God’s hands, knowing that God’s power is limitless. 

When God asked Ezekiel, “Son of Man, can these bones live?”  Ezekiel replied, “O Sovereign Lord, you alone Know.”  

3. Prophesy

Proclaim God’s word over your situation, knowing that His Word is able to bring life. 

When God speaks, what goes out from His mouth never returns empty but accomplishes what He desires and achieves the purpose for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11). 

Speak God’s Word, prophesy over the dry bones, and watch God’s desire to bring life be realized.

4. Obey God’s Commands

Even in the face of discouragement and despair, obey God’s commands and you can be assured of success. 

Ezekiel prophesied to the dry bones just as God commanded and this caused the bones to come together, tendons and flesh to appear and skin to cover them.    

5. Be Steadfast

Continue to pray, prophesy and proclaim God’s Word over your life and situation. 

Ezekiel continued to prophesy to the bones earnestly, causing God to breathe His Spirit into the slain and give them life .

6. Give Glory to God 

Have faith that God will restore you to a place of peace, He will bring hope in your circumstance and He will bring about change in your situation.  God will put His Spirit in you and you will live.  

Just as God declared He would bring Israel out of bondage to Babylon, He will bring you out of the valley in your life and when He does You need to give all of the glory back to God .

No matter how bad things may seem right now, no matter how dark it is in the valley or how dead your dreams…  a power no less than that of God Himself can restore life. 

He can breathe His Spirit into any situation, He can cause a vast army to stand up, He can raise the dead to life. 

When you are in the Valley of the Dry Bones, know that absolutely nothing is impossible with God. 

During your season Of darkness, remember to meditate on Ezekiel 37:1-14 and have faith that even the Dry Bones Live!
