That’s how many are feeling. Although, they are smiling on the inside, torment of feeling bound is causing sleepless nights, with tears streaming down their face. As they awaken in the morning, their pillow is drenched from the uncontrollable weeping. They go throughout their day as if all is well, but again, lurking within, it’s not.
Why am I discussing this? Because, these are the people that surrounds us every single day. Within they are crying out for help. But, do we hear them? Are we sensitive to the groaning within, although they are smiling? Are we in tune with the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us concerning the lives of those around us? Or, are we adsorbed into our own world?
People around us are crying out for miracles. They’re crying out for help for a family member. They need our prayers and intercession. They need a comforting helping hand and someone to encourage them by letting them know, it will be alright. We need those that will prophesy to the dry valley of bones and decree, “YOU WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE, BUT DECLARE THE WORKS OF THE LORD!” (Psalms 118:17)
*Ezekiel 37:1-14 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones. And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. So I prophesied 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. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves. And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
We need those that will stand in adverse situations and speak to the raging storms of life and command it to cease. To know when enough is enough and it’s time to go to the other side. The other side of the situation. To speak words of faith in believing ALL things are possible to them that believe. We need those to arise and step into the place of victory that has already been given to us and speak life instead of defeat. *And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. (Luke 8:24)
*(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. (Romans 4:17)
God is able to back His words up that we decree out of our mouths.
*Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12)
*Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.(Job 22:28)
I encourage you to arise, stand, be bold, and prophesy to the nations. Prophesy to your families. Prophesy to the man, woman, boy, and girl in your community, at the grocery store, in the parking lot. Prophesy to your marriage. Prophesy to the hurting and rejected. PROPHESY! GET UP, ARISE, AND PROPHESY! ARISE AND SHINE. TIME TO GET UP!
