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 v 4
At times in our life, we become lifeless and hopeless. During these valley times or low points in our lives, we should speak or declare the Word of the Lord to our bodies, minds and spirits and the Lord will bring to life our organs, our bones, our flesh and blood, our intellect, our emotions, our will and our spirits. He will breathe on us. The Word is oxygen to our inner being. It revives us. The resurrection power of Christ is released in us. The disconnected and disjointed parts of our lives will come together and get connected. We will find meaning, purpose and power once more. Our bones, spirits and lives will no longer be dry.
The Word has prophetic power. When it is affirmed by faith and declared in our souls, it begins to quicken or make alive our inner being. This is the reason the Word is said to be alive and active, sharper than a double-edged sword and penetrates to the point where bone and marrow meet. In other words, it penetrates to the deepest parts of our being and brings healing and greatly strengthens us. Bones are strong and useful only if they are connected together with joints, cartilage and muscles. We lead only a skeletal existence without the Lord’s breath upon and in us. Though we have fallen and are broken, He will cause us to walk again with Him. When we proclaim the Word, it overwrites on that which was written against us. Our weary spirits, our discouraged minds and weakened bodies will be re-charged and renewed. Speaking to our dry bones is not a one time exercise but ought to be a daily exercise. We need to command the dry parts of our lives to be alive and well, to be supplied with the blood of the Lamb of God, to be filled to overflowing with joy, love and hope.
There is no situation in life from which the Lord cannot redeem us. We should ask the Lord not just to breathe on us but to breathe in us and through us. The Holy Spirit is the breath of God, the same breath He breathed in man at the first point in time that caused the mud to become flesh and blood and His spirit to dwell in him. The breath of God is the image of God. He will re-create us in His image regardless of the mess we are currently in. When we hear the voice of Jesus, our dead parts will come alive. He will cause us once more to rejoice and to be glad. He is the One who was and is and is to come. Hence, He will forgive our past, heal and strengthen us in the present and prepare us for the future and for eternity. The Word has a historic function, a contemporary function, a future function and an eternal function. It also has a historic unction or anointing, a contemporary or present unction, a future unction and an eternal unction. It releases us from the guilt of the past, the memories that drag us down. It releases us from the worries of the present. It releases us from the fears and anxieties of the future. It releases us from fear of death and judgement of eternity. There happens a four-dimensional strengthening of our spirits, minds and bodies as we hear and prophesy with the Word.
