The Lord raises an Army from dry bones. Out of hopelessness new life begins. As Ezekiel spoke to the dry bones speak to your body, every part of it- nerves, bones, ligaments, muscles, skin, all other organs to be renewed with God’s breath. Speak to your soul – mind, will and emotions (depression, guilt, shame, rejection, loneliness, inferiority, poor self-image, lack of ambition, lack of vision, hatred, bitterness, jealousy, self-glory, vain glory, unhealthy competition, judging others, bondage of divisions, bondage of religiosity, lust, sinful life discriminating others etc…) to be transformed by God’s breath.
Speak to your spirit- enthusiasm, joy, peace, faith, hope, prayerfulness, alertness, time consciousness, etc….
You will find yourself coming out of the grave, many graves, graves of enmity, hopelessness etc. Jesus has given you a new life!
