You're Alive - Really!
(I know that it's Sunday night - but I probably will not be near internet access tomorrow, so I am going to go ahead and post Monday now.)
From Ezekiel 37:1-14 we read in verse 3 .... “Son of man, can these bones live?”
For all time, mankind has never thought that they could be all that they could be. (my apologies to the U.S. Army). But when Jesus sums up all of the commandments in Mark 12:30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ (NIV) We think - wounded heart, broken soul, weak mind and little strength.
God asks Ezekiel, in this vision, if these dry bones can live? Ezekiel responds very wisely by saying, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” It isn’t whether if God can do it - I believe Ezekiel was saying, “If you want them to live, they can - but I don’t know if you want them to live?”
Now fast forward to today. Does God want you to live? Be honest, your life might look like a valley of dry bones. No I am not talking about your present situation - but the spiritual condition of your heart. Resurrecting your heart is impossible to you or me. But nothing is impossible to God. Jesus came and gave His life in order that you might live!!
So understand - regardless of the fact that you feel like that you are in a spiritual waste land - God can breath life into your heart and that of your family. Yes!! You can live!
