Hope for the Impossible

Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 37:1-14 (day four)  Ezekiel had a vision…God caused him to see all over the valley.  There were bones everywhere.  Verse 2 says “they were very dry”.  God wanted Ezekiel to that there was no hope for the resurrection of these people…at least, in his power.  It was inconceivable to Ezekiel that there was any hope for life, but he knew that he was dealing with the Creator of the Universe.  In verse 3, God said to Ezekiel, “Son of man, can these bones live?” and Ezekiel wisely answered, “O Lord God, You know.”  Only the omnipotence of God could restore life to these very dry bones.  There are times and events in our lives when it looks absolutely impossible.  We cannot see any way out of our despair or predicament…the world seems too strong for us to survive, much less overcome.  Read Matthew 19:26.  We can have hope just like Ezekiel prophesied for Israel.
