Live again!

Ezekiel 37:5

Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!

I remember when I was preparing to have surgery and the thoughts of being put to sleep were not really ones that I desired to partake in...Of course, it is better than staying awake for the activity. It was such a strange feeling to wake up and not remember anything for that time period of my life.

I believe that our journey here without God is similar to that feeling. We remember, but we don't really feel like we are alive. Our steps are harder to make, our decisions are never easier, our movements seem so much harder and then we experience life anew!

God breathed into us and we step higher, we are able to make decisions with more confidence, we dance instead of drag and we are never alone. God does give us new life and we breathe because of Him.

Alive again! We feel like we were the dry bones brought back to life from the valley that we have been in and it is true! WE have HOPE! Why? The Sovereign Lord tells us once again in verse 13 of 37 that O my people, you will know that I am the LORD.

Praise God today!!

Debbie, I like the preceding verse 4, ...listen to the word of the Lord!" Then the beginning of verse 5 says, "This is what the Sovereign Lord says...." We read time and time again in Scripture how important it is for us to (listen to the word of the Lord.)

Praying that I spend time listening to the Word of the Sovereign Lord who put breath into me.
