THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES – A Word by Elaine Tavolacci
“THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES”
The Prophet Ezekiel had an incredible encounter with the Lord as He brought him into the valley of dry bones. The Lord then asked him, could these bones live? Ezekiel replied; “Sovereign Lord, You alone know.” Then the Lord told him to prophesy to those dry 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. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you, and cover you with skin. I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
Many of you feel as if you are in the valley of dry bones. Things in your life may appear to be barren and parched. Some of you are battling in your spiritual life and some in your natural life and you are wondering how things will ever resume and be recovered. The Lord wants to revive those dead things and restore life back into you. He wants to breathe His breath and revival into you, and resuscitate those dry and dead areas.
The Lord says I am restoring the dry bones back to life. Allow Me to revive those things that are lifeless. I Am the resurrection and the Life and I will awaken those dreams that I have placed in your heart and resurrect those promises that I have made to you. I am loosing you from the death sentence that has attached itself to you, and bring you into a life of victory. Don’t allow your present situations to take you into spiritual atrophy. I will refresh those areas that are parched and dry, resuscitate those areas that are lifeless, and resurrect that which is dead. Flesh will come upon you, sinews will materialize and My breath of life will fill you once again says the Lord.
As Ezekiel began to prophesy as the Lord requested ( Ezekiel 37:7-10), there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as he looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Then the Lord told Ezekiel, Now “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live. So as Ezekiel prophesied as the Lord commanded him to do, breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
The Lord says; I am raising up a great army from among the dead bones and I will use your lives, your voices and your breath to resuscitate this generation. I am restoring those gifts that have been dormant inside of you, and breathing My breath of life into you. As you breathe into the lives of others, they will experience resurrection power. Lives will awaken and dry bones shall come to life once again. Trust in Me as I begin to strengthen those things that are lethargic, and quicken to life to those things which have deceased. Be assured that all My promises will come to pass.
Be encouraged and know that life will come into those hopeless situations. Don’t be disheartened but trust Me to breathe My pneuma into the precious lives of others once again. You have been created with a purpose, therefore do not consider your situations to be unattainable. I am the God of restoration and resurrection and nothing is impossible with Me. Others will also be loosed from the garments of death and will come to life through your words, your breath and through the touch of your hands. For the time of resurrection has come says The Lord.
The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “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.”

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
