Spirit & Life Devotional
Friday, 9 September 2016
“(As it is written, ‘I have made you a father of many nations’) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.” Romans 4:17 NKJV
Here, we are looking at three sets of things: those which existed before and are now dead; those which seem to be alive but are actually dead; and those which ought to be in existence but are yet to manifest. I’m sure we can relate to these.
In the valley of the dry bones, the Lord said to Ezekiel, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: ‘Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”
Listen, dear people of God; everything was created by the word of God: the word of God is capable of giving life to whatever is dead and also capable of bringing into existence anything at all that you desire to see. The word of God is living and powerful! And the good thing is that the word of God is available to us all. Brothers and sisters, use the word! Use it to change your present condition; use it to rewrite your story; use it to create the life you want; use it to get the desires of your heart! Don’t be quiet! Prophesy!
