It is Possible: Gospel Today Devotional - 6th January, 2024

Ezekiel 37 records a very important encounter which the prophet Ezekiel had with the Lord himself. It was a message to be sent to the children of Israel but it came in a symbolic form. According to the prophet’s narration, he attests that the hand of the Lord came upon him in the spirit, and brought him into a valley; a valley that was filled with dry bones with no hope of coming alive. It is on this account, we shall consider that which the Lord wants us to see today. Praise God.

It is Possible: Gospel Today Devotional - 6th January, 2024

Imagine a father decides to take his son to a car producing company, and tells him to take a look at all the cars which of course are not just ordinary cars but very expensive cars. If he then asks the son if he believes he can buy all the cars there, don't you think the son will consider it unimaginable or almost impossible? But if the father goes ahead to buy all the cars, and even puts the son in charge, that would clarify his doubts, right?

Today, we shall be looking at a very important question that the Lord asked the prophet, and what lesson it is as believers we need to learn. I know you all agree with me that whatever was written before now in the scripture was written so we can benefit from it, and this of course will not be an exception. The passage of scripture to be considered is seen below,

"And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God , thou knowest."(Ezekiel 37:3).

After the encounter in verse one, still in the valley, the Lord asked him a very crucial question; can these bones live? Really? The prophet most probably could have thought, why? Because humanly speaking, it was practically impossible. This is because according to him, the bones were very dead, and not just dead but dry. So it was impossible to think such dry bones would ever live.

Let's look at the response of the prophet. When the Lord asked him, he said the Lord alone knew the answer to the question, why? Because if he had answered it, he may have answered based on what he saw, and that would have been a no. But knowing that the Lord had the power to do the impossible, he left the answer to the Lord so that on answering, he would then see it from God's perspective. And glory to God, the dry bones came alive.

You see, many times when people go through certain situations, in this case, believers, based on that which we see, and considering our own human ability, it may be worthy to think that the situation will be impossible to handle just like the prophet, but if dry bones could rise, and that by the intervention of the Lord, that situation would be settled for with God, nothing shall be impossible. This is the word of God to you today, it is possible. May this comfort your heart. Amen.

Thought for the day: There's nothing impossible with God. He can take care of that situation. Just trust him.
