Make it a point to spend some time each day with the Lord


Turnaround Moments


Read Ezekiel 36:1 through 39:29

Published: Aug 20, 2017

Walking through the valley of dry bones must have been depressing. This was a hopeless situation, indeed. A question came to the prophet right in the middle of the valley of despair. Basically, it was a question about whether or not God can work in hopeless situations.

He was baffled by the situation. Even before he had clarity about what God would do, the Lord used him to speak a word over those dry bones.

“This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life” (Ezekiel 37:5).

Something started to happen. The bones began to become attached to one another, and the breath came from the four winds, entering those lifeless bodies. There was fresh movement in a lifeless situation. It was a turnaround moment for those dry bones.

We need those turnaround moments in our lives, too, when God infuses us with fresh life and vigor. They come when we hear that fresh Word of God.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, breathe fresh life into me.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
