Live Out Loud! – Speak a Word!

I pray you are well and you are enjoying your new season. Speak words of life while living out loud in your new season. Be encouraged by Ezekiel 37:1-14 (Contemporary English Version),

Some time later, I felt the Lord’s power take control of me, and his Spirit carried me to a valley full of bones. The Lord showed me all around, and everywhere I looked I saw bones that were dried out. He said, “Ezekiel, son of man, can these bones come back to life?”

I replied, “Lord God, only you can answer that.”

He then told me to say:

Dry bones, listen to what the Lord is saying to you, “I, the Lord God, will put breath in you, and once again you will live. I will wrap you with muscles and skin and breathe life into you. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”

I did what the Lord said, but before I finished speaking, I heard a rattling noise. The bones were coming together! I saw muscles and skin cover the bones, but they had no life in them.

The Lord said:

Ezekiel, now say to the wind,[a] “The Lord God commands you to blow from every direction and to breathe life into these dead bodies, so they can live again.”

As soon as I said this, the wind blew among the bodies, and they came back to life! They all stood up, and there were enough to make a large army.

The Lord said:

Ezekiel, the people of Israel are like dead bones. They complain that they are dried up and that they have no hope for the future. So tell them, “I, the Lord God, promise to open your graves and set you free. I will bring you back to Israel, and when that happens, you will realize that I am the Lord. My Spirit will give you breath, and you will live again. I will bring you home, and you will know that I have kept my promise. I, the Lord, have spoken.”

Speak A Word

Monday Motivation: “As you journey through uncertainty, keep a word in your heart that secures forward movement. Participate in the miracle of your breakthrough moments with words that catapult you to places you once imagined. Speak a word: I’m in a New Season; God’s grace is covering me; My faith will produce more than what my fear will destroy; God is putting in overtime just for me!; I’m blazing trails on untraveled roads; My journey is different, and it matters; My help comes from the Lord. Speak a word along your journey. You shall live!”
