One of my favorite passages in Ezekiel is the one I read this morning where God shows Ezekiel how He can make a valley of dry bones turn into an army of men. Wow! That is a lot of work, but apparently not for God. I'm picturing a valley in Colorado where I traveled recently and can't even imagine standing in the middle of it being filled with bones, not to mention watching them rise up around me! Yikes!
What stood out to me is the faith Ezekiel had in that he didn't limit God. In verse 3, God asked Ezekiel if he thought the bones could live. Ezekiel answered God by saying "O, Lord God, thou knowest." I wondered what I would have said? What would you have said? Ezekiel figured that if God wanted those bones to live, then He could make it happen.
In our lives, God can do the same things for us. He can take our tired, dried up "bones" and put new breath in them. What a wonderful promise to us that God will help us with anything we need Him to
Philippians 1: 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
