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 to these dry bones, “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 37:4, 9).
The Lord made it known these dry bones represented His people, and what was true back then is true today. Today the church is pretty much a valley of dry bones. The power and passion have dried up, and all that’s left is the cold embers of a fire that once swept across this land.
So, the Lord is saying, “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.’” (Paraphrased)
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 to do is ask the Holy Spirit to fan that spark into flame and fill the church with His power.
This is what the Lord did with the first church as Jesus told them to wait in Jerusalem until they were endued with power from on high. And as they were praying “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 it fanned into flame the spark that was inside them, and there appeared a flame of fire over each one.
Prayer: “Come Holy Spirit, come O Breath of Life, and breathe new life into these dry bones, and fan into flame the spark within.”
