The most compelling picture of Israel’s future national restoration is a prophecy envisioned by Ezekiel about a valley of dry bones (37:1-14). As the song says, “So breathe, oh, breath of God. Now breathe, oh, breath of God.”
The rebirth of Israel seemed as impossible as a valley of unburied skeletons coming to life. But God was up to something good, and Ezekiel was about to learn there was no limit to His creative power.
Like dry bones, Israel was a dead nation, and the glory of God had departed. Does that describe your life in any way? Are you wondering, “Can these bones live?” Be encouraged. Jesus said, “You must be born again” (John 3:1-15). He’s in the business of bringing dead things to life.
