It Is Written
To day, we’re going to continue with the story of Ezekiel and the valley of the dry bones. In Ezekiel 37, God’s breath caused the bones scattered throughout the valley to come together. Now, in verse 8 of that same chapter, God’s breath attaches sinews, or tendons and muscles, to the bones. Here we see that God’s Word literally brings strength to the body and allows it to function together. Let’s take a look at some other verses that demonstrate the power of God’s breath, which is His Word.
In Exodus 15, also known as the Song of Moses, the children of Israel are celebrating because God just parted the Red Sea so they could escape the Egyptians. Verses 8 and 9 say, “And with the blast of Your nostrils the waters were gathered together; the floods stood upright like a heap; the depths congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’ ” That’s also what the Enemy says about you and me. He wants to overtake and destroy us.
But read what it says in verse 10: “You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the mighty waters.” Think about that—God’s breath is more powerful than the Enemy’s hand and sword. And you have access to it through His Word!
One blast of God’s breath is all it takes to part the seas in your life. If you feel like the Enemy is chasing you, or if you have a mountain in your life that needs to be moved, God’s breath has all the power you need, and it can breathe life into any situation you’re facing. Take Ezekiel, for example. In Ezekiel 37:10, he prophesied that breath enter the bodies of the army God had assembled in the valley of the dry bones. When he did, it says, “breath came into them and they lived.” Keep in mind that Ezekiel wasn’t speaking his own words: he was speaking God’s Word. We can do the same with our own lives. When we speak the Word of God, the breath of God is released into our circumstances. Whether it’s your marriage, your family, your health or your business, God’s Word can bring life to it. I want to encourage you to eat, drink and breathe in the Word of God every day. It will bring you power and life.
Father, thank You that the Enemy has no power over Your Word. There are areas of my life where I need a miracle, and I thank You that Your Word is more powerful than any difficulty in my life. Breathe Your power into my life, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
