“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1) The darkness was dispersed and Light became.
“The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)
Your cry may be; “Let me hear joy and gladness; and let the bones that you have broken rejoice” is being answered right now. Your sins are forgiven you at the Cross. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:11)
Jesus makes the darkness tremble and all fear is silenced. Breathe in the Living Word of God that is being spoken into you , then call these bones to live, call these lungs to sing and once again, I will praise Your name, Jesus!
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
The Word of God spoken over and into you comes alive. His Word quickened into your mortal flesh transforms from the inside out. “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
“Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6) By his spirit and through His Word you are made alive. Can these bones live live again, you ask? Well behold!
Jesus; grace and truth came through Him; The true light, which gives light to everyone, came into the world. To all who receive him, who believe in his name, he gives the right to become children of God, who are born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. Born again from above.
“If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.” (Jeremiah 20:9) May a new fire of God arise within and new life begin, in Jesus’ name!
After Jesus’ resurrection, on the road to Emmaus, those who walked with Him along the way, did not His words burn within them?
Jesus, the name above every other name, Jesus, the only one who could ever save;
worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, brings to life the dry bones once again.
Worthy of every song we could ever sing, worthy of all the praise we could ever bring. Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, we breath in His Word.
Holy, there is no one like You, there is none beside You, Jesus, Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are and fill me with Your heart. I will build my life upon Your love, as is a firm foundation putting my trust in You alone, I will not be shaken because the bones that were once dead and dry are made alive once again.
God in these last days has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature. (Hebrews 1:2,3)
Peace, bringing it all to peace, Jesus; Your name is a light that the shadows can’t deny, Your name cannot be overcome, is alive forever lifted high and cannot be overcome. New life is begun, Breath O Breath of God now breathe!
