God can raise to new life

the valley of dead bones

Ezekiel 37 God’s love is beyond our ability to comprehend, but our eyes are more often focused on the “valley of dry bones,” our Death Valley. We say, “I know God can do anything, “but in the next breath, we say, “I fail to see how God can work in this situation.” Martha and Ezekiel stood among the dead and thought those very words.

Martha stood before a closed tomb; Ezekiel stood in a valley of dead bones. Both were left speechless when God asked: Can these bones live?  But, God in his mercy said: I am about to infuse breath into that which was dead.

Just as the pioneers of old, who wandered into Death Valley, had to be rescued, we find ourselves in need of being saved.  Beloved, know God sees, and He alone can resurrect the dead out of our valley or tombs.

Jesus is our rescuer from our death valley. He came, lived amongst us even while the enemy even sought to kill and destroy. But, our God was then and is today more remarkable than any impossibility. He conquered death by rising on the third day to restore our dead bones with His living power. The one who believes in Him will experience his resurrection power.
