“And He said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, You know!” Ezekiel 37:3
As you grow spiritually, there could be times of difficulties, when you face serious challenges. But at such times, don’t give up. Even when everyone seems to be ignoring you and none is offering to help, in spite of all your appeals, refuse to complain or gripe about it. The truth is, you’re not being ignored. What’s happening is that the Lord is training and teaching you to stand up, and stand strong! He’s challenging and setting you up for your next level of glory.
Do you remember what happened with Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones? (Ezekiel 37:3-4). Ezekiel found himself in a valley full of dry bones and the Lord asked him, “Can these bones live?” That was an impossible situation, but God told Ezekiel to “prophesy to the bones.” As he prophesied, a great miracle took place: “…and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone” (Ezekiel 37:7 KJV). If you’ve found yourself in a situation where you seem to be alone before God, and everything around you seems “dry,” the Lord is asking you, “Can I give life to this situation?” He’s asking: “Son of man, can there be a change?” He’s waiting on you to act on His Word! He wants you to put all the things you’ve learnt to practice.
The challenges you face are bread for you; they’re your opportunity to demonstrate your faith in the Lord, and prove His Word. Therefore, refuse to become despondent. Keep declaring your health, success, prosperity, and victory in Christ Jesus.
