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.”

Change Your Story

Monday Motivation: “It’s not easy trying to please everybody. Nor is it possible. It’s exhausting and wasteful. The truth? You’ve spent too much time jumping hurdles and turning backflips for those who drain the promises living in you. Coworkers, family members, and friend circles have held your purpose hostage for far too long. Change your story. Escape your weary mindset. Walk away from harmful spaces. Dare to chase after and clinch the determination God is stirring up in you. It’s a new season, a new day. A new beginning fixed on pleasing God, the Almighty. Change your story. God is your help. You Shall Live!”

Protect Yourself

Monday Motivation: “Your ability to get from one day to the next lives in your thoughts. How you respond to negative attacks against you; How you choose to love instead of hate; How you participate in effective change rather than rally others to confusion; How you courageously wait on the whisper of God before considering reckless judgment; How you move forward to resist temptation. It’s all contingent on the thoughts filling your mind. Our thoughts are where life takes flight, especially in challenging times. Our thoughts can also lead us to perpetual unrest. Protect yourself. Guard your thoughts. Feed them with the wisdom of God’s words. You Shall Live!”
