The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.'” Ezekiel 37:1-5
Is your marriage dead in the eyes of your husband or wife? Do your friends and loved ones see you hurting so badly that they encourage you to get on with your life? What has the Lord been speaking to your heart? The Lord wants You to seek His face and ask Him to remove the pain as He takes you on a spiritual journey.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all… Psalm 34:17-19
I pray that you will throw away the time card the enemy keeps tormenting you with, as nothing is too hard for the Lord. He can breathe new life into your dead marriage in His perfect timing.
Today read Ezekiel 37 for your devotions. You will be blessed. What is the Lord saying to you? Will you listen, believe and stand firm until the Lord resurrects your dead marriage by breathing new life into both of you?
By the power of the Spirit of God, Ezekiel sees in a vision a valley full of dry bones. The vision was given to assure the exiles in captivity that God’s power would restore them despite their hopeless circumstances. God instructed Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones. The vision was to give them hope and encouragement despite their present circumstances. Ezekiel was revealing to the Israelites that they would be raised back to life and be able to go back to their promised land. They would also have a spiritual restoration of their faith.
Today, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart as you read this chapter in the Bible. You may want to read this as an allegory to your marriage. Allow the Holy Spirit to breathe on you new faith, hope, and trust in God’s resurrection power to bring life back to things that appear to be dead! Your Lord God wants to show the world His mighty power for God to get all the glory, honor, and praise when your marriage is raised back to life again.
So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Ezekiel 37:7-10
Do you believe in power? How big is your God? Does everyone say to you, “Your marriage is dead, get over it, and move on?” Your marriage may appear to be dead right now. But God!
The Holy Spirit CAN breathe new life into your marriage, regardless of the condition it is in today. I pray that these verses below will become like a “rhema word” for you personally. Your Lord God wants to show you and everyone around you His mighty power!
Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.'” Ezekiel 37:12-14
Will you start praying that the Holy Spirit will move and speak to your spouse and thousands of prodigals around the world to come to their senses and surrender their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ? There is freedom in Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior.

The vision was to give them hope and encouragement despite their present circumstances. ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Ezekiel 37:9-10

Thank you, Charlyne. This is a Word in due season. Yes, indeed, from the description of the “time card that the enemy keeps tormenting you with” to the “There is freedom in Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior“, – I SO needed this today. And our GRACIOUS and LOVING Heavenly Father knew that – He NEVER fails to provide what we need exactly when we need it. He continues to use you in such an AWESOME way. I feel so encouraged starting today. Thank You, Jesus, for RMM and for the victory that is surely coming ….for nothing is too hard for You!!! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
