Are You in a Valley of Dry Bones? What You Speak Out Through Your Mouth is What You Believe in Your Heart

Take for example the exchange with one of God’s prophets, Ezekiel, as described in
Ezekiel 37. When God led Ezekiel to a valley, he saw that he was full of dry bones. In verse 3, God asked Ezekiel, “Son of man, can these bones live?” As Ezekiel responded, he said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know”. It was then that the Lord directed him, in Ezekiel 37:4-6, what to say next;

“Prophesy to these 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.”
