Ezekiel 37

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

I love this story with the image of Ezekiel watching and suddenly the noise of rattling. The bones coming together and attaching themselves and waiting for the next command from God ~ Ezekiel once again witnessing the power of God!

God is so powerful and His creativity is awesome! Talk about getting attention and getting it immediately. We forget that not only God is powerful, strong, but He is very creative and at times I think He must have a huge sense of humor. After all, we are a mess of a people and yet He finds the most creative ways to get our attention. Don't you know He loved to surprise Ezekiel, Jeremiah, so on and then each of us?

He doesn't create animals like the giraffe or rhino and not have a sense of humor. He didn't create the Grand Canyon and not have a sense of humor thinking about the day someone would come to one side and wonder how they would get over to the next after they oooh and ahhhh over the beauty. He didn't create humans without a sense of humor!

At times, we feel like the dry bones. Dead.

Look to God and He will breathe life into you again! You will begin to dance and hold His hand while He points out the many creative wonders that He created in the world we reside in. He will bring you back.

Do you think Ezekiel snickered in amazement of God's power? Do you think he gasp? Do you think he had any fear? God was always surprising Ezekiel and I don't think he would have felt any fear after all that had happened to him, but he might have smiled at witnessing the bones or maybe a little gasp and perhaps a thought of what's next???

I am so glad to be a daughter of the most amazing King! Thank you Lord for all that you have been, all that you are and all that you will be always and forever. Amen.

Sweet blessings,

Debbie, my footnote in my NIV Bible called this a message of hope. After all of the other messages and visions that Ezekiel had received, this one of hope must have been a welcomed change for the prophet.

I have heard Pastors give messages on this passage through the years but it has new meaning for me today as I feel as though I know the prophet, Ezekiel a little better.
