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”.

There’s A Place For You Here + “Holy Kisses” Mug Giveaway

(Ephesians 2:6 TPT- He raised us up with Christ The Exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!)

Back in February, I went to two different conferences that greatly impacted and empowered my life: “Fire 18” in Jacksonville, FL and “Glory Nights” in New Orleans, LA.

To be completely honest with you, I’m still processing and reflecting upon the experiences and encounters that I had at both, but I’ve felt that Holy Spirit is leading me to share this one experience with you guys that happened on one of the nights of “Glory Nights New Orleans”. With that being said, I’m going to attempt to describe what was happening during worship that night just to try to paint a picture for you of what the atmosphere in the room was like.

There was a room full of beautiful-hearted people that genuinely love Jesus and we were all just singing and worshiping The Lord.

So, right from the very beginning, The Presence of God was already permeating and starting to completely saturate the entire room.

If you were to take a quick glance around the room you would see people lying on the floor, sitting, standing, and just in their own sacred space with The Lord. Everyone on my row happened to be standing as they were worshiping including me and I heard The Lord say, “Sit on the floor with Me.” There really wasn’t much room to sit unless you had already moved to the one of the aisles or to the front or the back of the room prior to worship starting. So, I just quietly sat down Indian-style on the floor in front of my seat with my hands and heart open and ready to receive.

As soon as I closed my eyes, I saw The Lord sitting in this beautiful, antique chair. I wouldn’t quite call in a throne. To be honest, it reminded of this chair that my Grandpa would always sit in when I was a child— the same chair that I would always climb up into my Grandpa’s lap to watch TV (mainly sports), eat snacks, and drink sweet tea. 🙂

What I’m saying is, this picture that I was seeing of The Lord sitting in that chair as I’m sitting on the floor with my eyes closed felt and seemed incredibly familiar to me. It had a very nostalgic feel to it in the sense that what I was seeing in the spirit had begun to evoke real emotion from me in the natural.

I began to weep and I felt this love that I don’t even have the words to accurately describe to you and then I started to remember all these very precious moments that I had growing up with my Dad and my Grandpa both whom I was incredibly close to, but have gone on to be with The Lord.

But when the memories started to drift from my focus and I began to laser in on The Lord sitting in that chair again, I saw that He was smiling and He was patting His right leg as a parent or grandparent would do when they’re letting a child know that it’s ok for that child to climb up into their laps to sit down. And The Lord was saying over and over again, “There’s a place for you here.”

Today’s focal verse says, He raised us up with Christ The Exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ! 

For we are co-seated as one with Christ! I’ve been sitting here mulling over how beautiful and incredibly powerful that is.

I share all of this with you guys for three reasons:

  1. I wanted you to be able to see how The Lord will take you on this sweet, intimate journey with Him and bring up memories that are precious to you just to show you the depths of His heart for you and how He intimately knows you.
  2. I wanted you to understand how those memories can be directly related to the relationship that He’s trying to either establish or richly deepen with you.
  3. I don’t believe that this experience was just for me. I believe that it is for the body of Christ as a whole. And so, I felt that you should know or be reminded of the fact that, you have an ever-extended invitation from The Creator of the universe Himself also known as our Abba Father to climb up into His lap, rest your head upon His heart, and be one with Him.

As we reflect upon today’s focal verse, my prayer for us is that that we would take it to heart, cling to and rest in it’s truth, and then view and live our lives through the lens of the promises within that truth.

The Lord, Himself is calling us unto Him. So, as He beckons you into His lap, simply sit, smile, rest, and receive from Him remembering that there is always a place for you there. 🙂

Happy Soul Kissed Thursday! Sending you all heavenly hugs and holy kisses! I love you guys!
