“And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.”
(Ezekiel 37: 2)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Our Focal Scripture speaks of the dry bones which Ezekiel saw in the valley. When a human being dies and is decomposed, only the bones remain. The bones remain after everything else is gone; the bones are the only components that survive after decay.
God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones, and the dry bones came back to life. God worked through the dry bones that remained and a huge miracle took place. God used the dry bones that remained as raw materials to bring restoration.
Friend, has your life been reduced to dry bones? God is about to use what is remaining in you to bring restoration. If there is something left of your health, then there will be restoration; if there is something left of that business or career that has almost crumbled, God will arise and spring a new surprise of restoration.
The devil may have taken your job but he didn’t take your skills/certificates; you may have lost clients but you haven’t lost your competence; you may have lost the favor of men but you haven’t lost God’s favor; you may have lost some things, but you haven’t lost everything.
From what is remaining, God will cause blessings and miracles to spring forth on all sides. From that skill you have, a heavy harvest is about to spring forth. From that contact you have, major testimonies are coming.
If there is something left, there is something that God can bless. If there is something left, then there shall be restoration with compensation.
Ecclesiastes 9 vs. 4 sums it up: “For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.”
Pray With Me: Lord, use what is remaining in my life to bring restoration, in Jesus’ name!
