Today’s 333 Devotional: “Come Breath of Life”
Can these dry bones live? This was the question presented to the prophet Ezekiel when the Lord took him to the Valley of Dry Bones. The Lord told Ezekiel to say, “Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.”
And the word of the Lord was, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” (Ezekiel 37:9)
These dry bones represented God’s people, and what was true back then is just as true today.
Today the church is pretty much a valley of dry bones as well. The power and the passion have dried up, and all that is left are the cold embers of a fire that swept across this world.
So the Lord is saying for us to, “Speak to the Breath, speak to the Holy Spirit and say, ‘Come Holy Spirit, and breathe Your breath of life so that Your people can once again live and be a holy fire.’”
The Apostle Paul said to Timothy, “I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God.” (2 Timothy 1:6)
The spark is there, what we need is to ask the Holy Spirit to fan that spark into flame, and to fill the church with His power.
This is what the Lord did to the first church as Jesus told them to wait until they were endued with power from on high. And as they were praying it says, “There came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.”(Acts 2:2)
And the Holy Spirit fanned into flame the spark and there appeared a flame of fire over each one.
Take a moment and pray, “Come Holy Spirit, come O Breath of Life, and breathe new life into these dry bones, and fan into flame the spark within.”
