Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

hope or hopeless

Hope is a powerful thing. Just look at someone who feels hopeless and then look at someone filled with hope – you will see a drastic difference.
 
Maybe today you are low on hope. Maybe you find yourself in that place of hopelessness. Maybe life has kicked you in the teeth one too many times. Maybe you have forgotten that God is greater.
 
If that is you then I encourage you to read Ezekiel 37 today.
 
Dry bones (representing the people of Israel) were scattered everywhere. All hope was gone. In verse three the Lord asks if the bones could become people again? The answer of course is yes. With God all things are possible.
 
A rattling noise begins to happen as the bones began to attach to each other. Then muscles, flesh and skin covered the bones. However, the bodies had no breath.
“The Lord God says: Come from the four winds, O Spirit, and breathe upon these slain bodies, that they may live again.” Ezekiel 37:9 The bodies began breathing and there was a great army standing.
 
When we try to do things on our own strength, when we allow stress and deadlines to knock the wind out of us, when we take our eyes off of Jesus – we become like dry bones scattered across a valley.
 
Today breathe in the breath of God. Allow Him to fill you to overflowing with hope. (Romans 15:13) Renew your trust in Him. He is able!
 
dry bones brought to life!
