Ezekiel 37: 4 – 6 ——Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
If Ezekiel could speak to the dry bones and they became alive, surely we too can speak to Jesus and that same spirit of God will willingly move in our heart if we believe. This is the time to speak to the Lord.
When we read the Word we must receive it just like John the Baptist. We should expect and believe, releasing our faith on what we have heard. Jesus is truly the Lamb of God. We see Him being offered as a sacrifice. Jesus suffered on the cross for our sake. Even though Jesus was suffering in pain for our sake, yet we only focus on our needs and wants. We only ask for healing, for prosperity, for blessings.
When John the Baptist saw Jesus, he grabbed that opportunity that was offered to Him and testified about Jesus. In the same way, we too get opportunities for the harvest is plentiful but we have failed many times to testify about Jesus.
We ask You, Lord, to destroy selfishness, help us crucify the desires of our flesh so that it will not lead us to corruption anymore. Teach us to love, teach us to forgive, teach us to live our lives for You and for others.
Let everything we say and do bring glory and honour to You. Let us repent in those areas in which we do things that are displeasing to God. Let us make a firm commitment not to commit that sin anymore and ask the Lord to give us the grace to be set free from that bondage.
Lord grant us the sight that we may see the hurting and lost souls and help them turn to You. John the Baptist spoke with assurance and confidence to the crowd because he believed your Word, help us also to do the same and thus lead other to You!
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND YOU ARE A DYNAMIC DUO. WITHOUT HIM YOU ARE GOING TO STRUGGLE. WITH HIM YOU ARE AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE.
