“So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Also He said to me, “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 I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.” Ezekiel 37:7-10
Ezekiel went further to prophesy in obedience to the voice of God.
What has God been telling you to speak and pray His Word over? Why haven’t you done it? The Word of God is the will of God for us. His promises in the Word are for our lives and whenever we pray the word over our circumstances, our faith grows and we get our answers.
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” I John 5:14-15
The Hebrew word for “Breath” in this verse is ruach, which means “air in motion” and is used to refer to the Holy Spirit throughout the Old Testament. The same word was for Spirit of God even from Genesis 1. When we speak the Word of God over our circumstances, the Holy Spirit swings into action and there is a shaking and those dead circumstances come to life!
Are you activating the power of the Spirit over your life and circumstances? Or are you speaking death?
I challenge you today to only pray scripture over your circumstances for the next month and also pray in the Spirit to activate the work of God over your circumstances. Watch and see as the Spirit of God turns things around for your good.
