The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 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.
3 And He said unto me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, Thou knowest.”
4 Again He said unto me, “Prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, ‘O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.’”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied,there was a noise, and behold, a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above; but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said He unto me, “Prophesy unto the wind. Prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, ‘Thus saith the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.’”
10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
In the passage above we see that the prophet saw a valley of dry bones. Spiritually speaking, many situations in our lives may be like "dry bones". Dead, dry, lifeless and hopeless. However things are not always as hopeless as they seem to the natural eye. We each face different challenges. To one it may be health challenges and to another finances, another person faces challenges in the work place. Our children may face opposition in their schools and universities. Whatever the case may be, when we seem to be between a rock and a hard place, look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Ask hi to breathe new life into the situation. Sometimes we need to exercise spiritual authority and speak new life into the situation. Prophesy health to your body, prophesy healing to your bones, prophesy financial blessings, prophesy divine wisdom in the workplace, prophesy success in school, prophesy spiritual victory, prophesy breakthroughs in the spiritual realm. As Jesus said "speak to the mountain". When we as believers in Christ stand up together in victory we no longer appear to the world and to the enemy as "dry bones" but rather as an "exceeding great army", or a force to be reckoned with. When we do that we can march up to the gates of hell and reclaim what the enemy stole from us. We can reclaim our health, our finances, the lost souls we know and trample upon all the power of the enemy (Satan). In closing a gospel song says "God's got an army marching through the land, deliverance is their song, there's healing in their hands, the strength to carry on and everlasting joy and in this army I've got a part." Be recruited into the army of God and trample over the wicked one and establish God's Kingdom rule on Earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.
