Do things in your life seem to be scattered right now? 

Ezekiel 37 tells us about a valley of dry (scattered) bones. That’s all they were until God steps in. We see God asking the prophet a question, “Can these bones live?” The prophet replied, “O Lord God you know!” Then comes the part where the prophet had to put his faith into action. He was told to prophesy to the bones. Then he did as he was told. Then there was a rattling…before the miracle was a rattling. 

We all know this story and now I want to share with you what God showed me last night. We all have scattered dreams, things, stuff.  We don’t always give them over to the Lord, sometimes we hold onto our (bones) hoping we can figure out how to put them all back together. God wants us to give it ALL to him. He loves us and wants to help us in our times of need. When we do give it to him there may be a time of rattling before we see anything happening. 
Have you ever been driving in your car and something is rattling? Usually, Greg will pull over and find it because he just can’t take the noise of it. We may mistake the rattling as something that is not good when actually it is a lining up of things. God rattled these bones and lined them up before they fell into place. We play a part in this. We must speak to our (bones). We must stop speaking negatively over them. We must start saying what we believe God is saying about them. Do we believe it? Then we must line our mouths with his word and speak before we see anything. Speak over them while they sleep, anoint their car, pray over their pillow, declare the word of the Lord over whatever your situation is and watch our God move. Listening for a rattle. 
Our hope is not lost! We serve a might God and He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than we can think or imagine. 
Let’s believe with Him.
