Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. – Ezekiel 37:4
God can call us to prophesy, to speak, to call out, to tear down, or to simply say something. He can even call us to call out to dry bones.
Yet, the Lord can also just pose a question like He did with Ezekiel in the previous verse.
Can these dry bones live?
If we believe, then our belief should be so solid that we answer God with assured confidence. We can stand tall and speak boldly. We should at least know that the Lord knows and let our confidence be in Him.
There are communities full of dry bones. Classrooms are filled with dry bones. Coffee houses are occupied by dry bones. Prison cells hold dry bones captive. Office cubicles host dry bones from nine to five. Even church pews have dry bones dressed to impressed Sunday after Sunday.
We have to speak up and speak out. We are called upon to speak so that those dry bones can have life.
