“Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry
bones, hear the word of the LORD.”
(Ezekiel 37: 4)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In our Focal Scripture, God told Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones, so that they
might live. Ezekiel’s prophecy was meant to orchestrate a resurrection of the bones;
Ezekiel was meant to say something in order for the bones to come back to life.
The bones were yet to come back to life because Ezekiel was yet to prophesy; what
Ezekiel was yet to say made the bones to remain dry. God was willing to raise the
bones, but He waited until Ezekiel prophesied.
Friend, it’s not enough to know God’s word and thoughts concerning you; God says,
prophesy according to the word. Speak God’s word back to Him. Proclaim God’s word
concerning you; say what God says about you; say what you read from God’s word; when
men give disturbing reports, declare the report from God’s word.
Ezekiel spoke, and God fulfilled his prophecy. What Ezekiel said laid the foundation
for what God did. You may have been waiting for God to take action, but just maybe,
God is also waiting for you to prophesy. If you prophesy according to God’s word,
God will fulfill your prophecy.
Don’t prophesy about what has gone wrong when you can use your tongue to speak of
what God can do. Don’t use your tongue to speak of problems when you can use same
tongue to speak of divine solutions. Instead of being the announcer of the negative
reports of men, be the one to announce God’s word to ‘dry bones’.
The dry bones only came back to life after Ezekiel spoke according to God’s word.
Speak God’s word and your ‘dry bones’ will come back to life.
Numbers 14 vs. 28 says: “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye
have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:”
Pray With Me: Lord, as I speak Your word, may there be fulfillment in Jesus’ name!
