Ezekiel 37:5 The Lord Speaks
This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
Have you ever walked through something that shook you to the very core of your belief? Your flight or flight switch turned on and now you feel like it’s hopeless to turn it off. Your bones feel dry and your lungs are heaving for just a breath of peace. Your mind is racing and beating you to death with all the doubts that plague you. Your knees shake and your hands are sweating. Your trying to pray, but you can’t find the words. You can’t seem to get your mind quiet long enough to hear what your heart is saying.
I know it feels like your alone in this. It’s dark, cold and lonely where you are right now. There doesn’t seem to be any peace, though not for your lack of trying. But let me be an encouragement to you. I’ve been where you are. I’ve sat in the seat of despair. Hopeless to find my way out and see anything good for my future. Broken on every side and bruised in my heart. But with all the hope I could muster (Which wasn’t much) I took another breath and kept going. You want to know what I’ve learned about myself. I am a fighter, a very determined individual. I don’t give up easy. I never knew how much of a fighter lived inside me until God had to bring it out of me.
I am stronger because I refused to let the devil break me. I bent, I swayed but I never broke. Though there many days I thought I might. There many nights I said, I just can’t do it anymore. But, for every breath I took God was holding me in His right hand and He is you to! Being in a broken place in your life feels like your bones are dried up and life seems pointless. you are heaving for just a drink of peace. your not asking for much.
Still my mind and heart Lord, long enough for me to hear you
While facing the hardest trial of my life God gave me the best vision I could have ever ask for but never did. While asleep one night God showed me the world, then He had me look to the right and I was standing in His right hand and He was smiling at me. Isn’t that such a beautiful thing. I know I’m okay with God, but my mind and the devil likes to convince me otherwise. Sometimes, it works.
Beloved daughter, I know times may seem tough right now. I know it’s very hard where your standing. Going around and around that same ole mountain. Your promised land is just on the other side of that trial. You can do it. God is on your side.
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Direction and perspective is your key. Reshaping and renewing the way you think. Be careful what you are thinking about. How you talk to yourself. As you begin to renew your mind, (Daily) with the word your dry and weary bones will begin to be restored.
So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God
Breathing will become easier, thinking won’t feel so overwhelming and making a decision won’t feel so critical. You will begin to see life has meaning again.
So beloved little daughter, be of good cheer! Your father is looking after you. He’s holding you in His right hand. So slip into faith, put on some peace and watch as the Lord sustains you!
