Today Reminder – 4 March 2016

A reminder for today
Then he said to me, "Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.'" (Ezekiel 37:9)

The “Valley of the dry bones” is a very familiar peace in the Bible. God took Ezekiel away to a valley filled with dry bones of the dead. Then God told Ezekiel to speak a prophetic message over the bones and they came to life combining the bones to create complete skeletons and then flesh grew back to make them human again. And finally God told Ezekiel to speak another prophetic message so that they will be filled with breath and live again. 

This is quite an interesting verse as it prophetically describes how the Jewish people will return to their land and live in it again. There is also a huge focus on the Lord, because the Lord will bring them back so that they will know He is our God and that He has spoken.

How does this bring me to a reminder for you for today? Well the Lord is giving me a picture of how He restores us when we are broken and exhausted. You see just as He brought those dead bones to life, the Lord wants you to know that He will take your broken and exhausted body and rebuild it by replacing all your energy with Godly energy and then He will breathe over you filling you with life giving breath so that you will stand up again and face anything that comes your way with Godly authority. 

Do not fear dark and difficult times, my friend, just remember that your dry bones will be restored into a new fighting fit warrior and everyone will know that the Lord our God is the only living God.

Lord, renew and replace our tired and exhausted bodies with your strength and power so that we can face all that is waiting us in this day. In Jesus name.

Let every knee bow down and every voice declare that Jesus Christ is the Lord.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
