What can be done when all of hope of deliverance is gone? If our nation persists in legislation that encourages sin, forbids righteousness and we fall as a result, can God save us still?
God can do anything! When Judah was in the middle of self-destruction in the 6th century B.C., the Lord sent a vision to Ezekiel. He saw, “a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, ‘Son of man, can these bones, live?’ I said, ‘O Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’ Then he said to me, ‘Prophecy 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. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord’” (Ezekiel 37:1-6).
Judah was conquered by Babylon, yet God restored them to their land. Judah persisted in sin, but God sent his Son Jesus to die for their sins and restore them to life in Jesus. Judah was a valley of death, a place of dead bones, but God gave hope to all nations through Jesus Christ.
Do you see a valley of dry bones, of hopelessness and spiritual death? Fret not! God can put life in dry bones. He’s done it before and he will do it again. That’s what God does. Hear the word of the Lord!
