“And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people.” (37:13)
The LORD brings to life, to that which was dead.
Israel was in a hopeless state. But God, Creator God, is not intimidated by death, for He is the breather of life. He knows no hopeless state.
He can take dry bones, things long dead, and bring them to life. Every enemy or evil empire in the world could coordinate an attack and still lose.
It’s so easy to be near-sighted and anxious with our provincial point of view, but He is telling His people, “something far worse than your imagined ‘worst case scenario’ could happen and I’d still be able to handle it with ease.” In fact, He will conquer death and all enemies. He will raise to life all who have died. He will establish His people and place Christ on the throne of the earth.
“I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (37:26-27)
His promises are sure.
Bring to the LORD your impossible situations today. Pray! Write it down! See how He answers you. You will know Him by His ability to fulfill all that He says, and by remembering how many times He’s already done that.
