Can these bones live?

Can theses bones live? In Ezekiel 37 God takes the prophet on a spiritual journey and sets him down in a valley full of bones and gives him a tour of the multitudes that once lived. People who had hopes and dreams, but died before their time. God asks the prophet a peculiar question, “Can these bones live?” Can something that is not just void of life, but is beyond hope be resurrected? Not just one skeleton but multitudes; not just skeletons, but bones separated and scattered. Are you facing an impossible task, a hopeless situation? Are your bones drying up. Nothing is impossible. Not for God.
Then God did something amazing to me. He told the prophet, “You, prophesy to these bones. You, tell them the Word of the Lord, you, speak life into this hopeless mess, tell them they will live! Tell them to stand up, they will have strength once again! they will have breath! NOT ONLY WILL YOU LIVE AGAIN, BUT YOU WILL BE A MIGHTY ARMY!
Ezekiel states that as he was prophesying he heard a great sound of bones coming together, and saw with his own eyes flesh coming on the bones. As you speak the word of God over your life things WILL come together and you will see the dead dreams in your life live again.
Can I tell you the Word of the Lord to you is that, you will live again. Call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved. Call those things that be not as though they are. Obey God. Is anything to hard for the Lord?
