‘Breathe on me, breath of God’: Think about Ezekiel’s valley of dry bones (Ezekiel 37): the bones were dead and in disarray. If that describes your life right now, there’s good news. When God breathed into those bones they came to life, stood up, and became a force to be reckoned with. (…) Notice also that when the Spirit of God came into Ezekiel’s valley, broken things were mended and dead things brought back to life. And God wants to do the same for you! Notice what else took place: a ‘rattling’ (Ezekiel 37:7 NKJV). That’s standard procedure with God. Before he uses you, he shakes up your comfort zone, your proven methods, and your set-in-concrete ideas. Your past is no problem for him, because his eyes are on your future. So come into his presence today and pray, ‘Breathe on me, breath of God. Fill me with life anew.
