It will come together for a greater good eventually!
For some people life is good. For some other, life is a fairy tale, for yet another, life seems difficult, in my part of the world, in the local parlance, this will translate as, ‘life na wha!’ How do you see life?
Every day we define life by our experiences. Very few of us make the effort to seek the right counsel on life and its issues from The Life Maker.
How we define life is a direct function of how and what we attribute life events to.
In the midst of the ‘ups and downs’, the ‘feel so excited and feel melancholy’, the ‘feel indifference’, that often makes us feel like misfits, know that your circumstances will not change until like I said in the last post, you ‘make a choice to be happy’.
To make an informed choice to be happy, you have to understand how you get depressed and how you express it. You have to understand why in the first place you get depressed and what triggers depression for you.
Sometimes even when we try so hard, we find that we can’t always influence the outcome of the people and circumstances around us to our own advantage, but if you are a believer, you will agree with me that when we pray with our hope on God, our situations begin to undergo a process which at the beginning may not seem pleasant but at the end we are at advantage, and find ourselves in a better place.
That process is what I like to write about today. I observed that in Ezekiel 37:7,
“So I prophesised as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and Behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.”
The question, ‘How do you see life?’ is asked daily in different ways. God expects us to prophesy to our situations, to say what we desire, to speak life not death into our peculiar circumstances! What could be as dead as a dry bone? Yet, Ezekiel obeyed the command to ‘prophesy’ to announce life to the circumstances around him.
Our peculiar circumstances are not different from the dry bones talked about in the chapter of scriptures. Note that in verse 3, the LORD ask Ezekiel,
“Son of man, can these bones live?”
I may not be able to understand the gravity of the situation you may be faced with or the agony in your heart over life events, but I am convinced in the LORD, that if the bones that are described in verse 2 as “…very dry”, and yet in verse 7, we see that, “the bones came together, bone to his bone” then be rest assured that the misfit you find yourself will come together for a greater good eventually!
Know that what you say or prophesy over life circumstances matter. Please commit to speaking life, not death to your circumstances. The details of the circumstances may be obvious, still speak life. I draw a lot of inspiration on prophesying life over my circumstances from my native name ‘Oghenevwunuma’, which literally means, ‘God created the world with the words of His mouth’.
We create our world with the words we speak!As a result I decided a long time ago to always speak life regard less of the noise around me!
Yes noise! I like to describe life events that tend to distort our peace as noise.
Verse 7b of Ezekiel 37,
…and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and Behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.”
I can’t help but smile as I write this. You know how you will be faced with a situation and you are praying, taking the right steps in the right directions to ensure you are kept out of harm’s way? But then, it looks like the more you pray, the more you try to keep your own part of the deal, the more you do not understand what is going on?
Friend, cheer up! It’s just the noise phrase you are in. Don’t stop prophesying life over your circumstances, don’t stop doing good. Don’t lose your hope in God! After the NOISE comes the SHAKING, eventually, events will come together that will shape your circumstances and deliver your expectation in accordance with God’s will for that circumstance!
Do you like me wonder why the word ‘Behold’starts with a capital letter despite being in the middle of a sentence? I believe it is to draw our attention to,
look out for what God is doing underneath the surface of the shaking.
I believe ‘Behold’is suggesting that we should look again and carefully at our circumstances and define it by God’s standard so that eventually we can see an arrangement of situations for our good, a coming together effect…
My Name is Precious, I was Bipolar and I live a full Life
Heavenly Father, let the dry bones in my life hear your Word and let there be a coming together effect in my favour in Jesus Name, Amen. Ezekiel 37:4
