Daily Word for Sunday, August 9, 2015
Ezekiel is encouraged in Ezekiel 37:4 to “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the Word of the Lord.”
God says essentially to Ezekiel, “Speak My Word to the problem you see.” Hebrews 11:3 says, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
So God says we understand, through faith, that unseen things (spoken words) can frame seen things (things in the world that are tangible). Now, how is it that by faith we understand that?
Well, faith is an act so through acting as God did in framing the worlds we have insight to how the worlds were framed by God.
So what did God do? In the first Chapter of Genesis, God speaks the worlds into existence. We repeatedly hear, “and God said” and “let there be.”
What follows is “and there was” whatever He was speaking or “it was so.”
So God challenges us along with Ezekiel to speak His Word to our valleys of “Dry Bones” and watch the Holy Spirit begin to frame our world with His Word.
Have you noted that God has said something about every detail of our lives?
My friend, begin today saying what God says about your life and circumstances and keep on keeping on until you frame what’s needed in your worlds.
Peace and blessings!
