Prophesy Life To Your Valley Of Dry Bones

(Ezekiel 37:4-5 NLT – Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to The Word of The Lord! This is what The Sovereign Lord says: Look! I Am going to put breath into you and make you live again!’”)

The NIV of today’s focal verses say, Then He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear The Word of The Lord! This is what The Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.’”

How electric and life-giving are those words?!

Over this last week, as I’ve sat with Papa God and meditated on Ezekiel chapter 37, verses 1-14, Holy Spirit has just been continually unveiling and wrecking me in the best possible way with new and fresh revelation of The Word of God. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read that passage of Scripture over the course of my life, but wasn’t truly cognizant of how powerful the gift of prophesy is or mindful of the fact that The Word is alive—literally alive. And not only is The Word alive, but it gives life as well. (John 1:1-5)

Just in spending intimate time with The Lord, it has amazed me how notably the truth of those very words have just adhered to my spirit and been a constant reminder of how dynamic The Word really is. And in me taking the time to reflect upon that truth, it reminded me of yet another truth that mustn’t be negated. And that truth is, that our words as in the words that we’re speaking daily are paramount.

The Bible says that death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruits. (Proverbs 18:21) So, the question to ponder then becomes, what are we speaking forth over our lives, our families, our friends, the dreams of our hearts, and our destinies?

The Bible also says, What comes out of the mouth is what’s overflowing in the heart. (Luke 6:45)  What that says to me is, that what we say is what we truly believe in our heart of hearts not only about ourselves, but also about those around us as well. I would like to propose that we should intently mull over what we’ve been speaking forth and if our thoughts and words don’t line up with the truth of who God says we are and who He’s created us to be, then we need to replace those thoughts and those words with His truth.

We not only need to meditate on the perfection of the promises within The Word of God, but sit with Him in the secret place, ask Him to speak to us His truth— that eternal truth that He spoke over our lives from the moment that He first thought of us, listen for His voice to sweetly whisper the truth of who we are into our hearts, and then began to prophesy that truth over our lives.

As we position ourselves to start speaking life over ourselves and others everyday, here are 4 powerful little gems/tokens of truth for us to store in the treasure chest of our hearts and minds.

  1. ) Before The Lord created us in our mother’s womb, He knew us, approved of us as His chosen instrument, and set us apart consecrating us unto Himself. (Jeremiah 1:5)
  2. ) We are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) (That reference is from the NIV, but I really recommend reading Psalm 139:1-18 from TPT as well because the wording there is much more personal, intimate, and elaborate.)
  3. ) The Lord’s plans and thoughts toward us have always been to give us unwavering hope and a bright future. His heart for us is that we would abundantly prosper. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  4. ) Jesus came to give us everything in abundance, more than we expect—LIFE in its fullness until we overflow! (John 10:10)

As we enter into this new year, let us hold the truth of those 4 things in our hearts, being fully aware of the efficacy that lies within the words that we speak, and knowing that above all else The Word of God will always stand firm, outshine, and reign supreme over the blatant lies of the enemy.

In closing, my prayer is that we would unequivocally accept and receive The Word of The Lord as the infallible truth that it is and prophesy that truth over our lives, our loved ones, our hopes, our talents, our gifts, and our dreams allowing The Lord to breathe life into, upon, and within our own personal “valley of dry bones”.

“The human voice: It’s the instrument we all play. It’s the most powerful sound in the world, probably. It’s the only one that can start a war or say ‘I love you.'” – Julian Treasure

  1. Awesome post sister! I was so refreshing to read you after this long while! I struggle with meditating on the Word. Although I love it and read the Bible more than 50 times I never retain anything because I have ADHD. Your post encouraged me to take one passage and meditate on it for a long time, as long as it takes fir it to be copied in my mind forever!

  3. Tai, I appreciated this post as it reminded me of a sermon I heard from our pastor on this passage in 1985. I have never forgotten it. May we remember our God can breathe life into every life and every situation. Can we just imagine the sound of the bones in that valley as they moved!!! Seriously, just astounding! Blessings on your new year!

  7. Hello Tai! It’s wonderful to meet you my sister. I’m hopping over from Faith on Fire. What a word you shared today. We have been given the living, breathing word of God and infused with power to speak it. Why do we fail to speak God’s word into our dry places and why do we insist on spewing out words that are in deep contrast to his truth. This is convicting Tai! Bless you for your obedience to God in this post.

  8. Tai! Thank you so much for sharing about my book! Wow, I am honored and blessed. 🙂 I had no idea that you had mentioned or written anything, what a fun surprise when I popped over. Thanks again, and I also, I just love Ezekiel 37 – it is such a powerful promise of what is possible when we use our prophetic voice and call things to live that seem desolate. I just had a prophetic word this last Sunday about this passage of Scripture in church for our congregation. I love you take on it and how you break it down for us – you go girl. Thanks again and Happy New Year. (PS… I thought I left a message last week, but i didn’t see it, so sorry if this is duplicate one. :0) )

  13. So enjoy seeing your visit on Sunday Scripture Blessings link up so I could come visit your blog. So true on meditating on the word, and how sometimes we can read, and then read and it is revealed what it is saying. I am one to not understand sometimes what the Word is saying; especially in the Old Testament, but then I reread a passage, and it becomes clear. Thanks again for visiting, and I’ll check out your youtube. 🙂 Please visit and link up again anytime.
