Can These Bones Live
"He asked me, Son of Man, can these bones live? I said, O Sovereign Lord, you alone know." Ezekiel 37:3
Scripture Focus: Ezekiel 37:1-14
God took Ezekiel into a valley filled with dry bones, walked him back and forth among them and told him to prophesy. There was a rattling sound as the bones came together. Tendons and skin appeared. Breath went into them, and they came alive! Standing before Ezekiel was a huge army!
This passage illustrates the perplexing task of understanding God's ways. Were the bones real? Or as God put it, "Can these bones live?" God told Ezekiel that the bones symbolized the nation of Israel, which He would restore to its previous position. Ezekiel gives the only logical answer: "You alone know."
In an age when we are increasingly unsure about what is real and where technology blurs those lines for us, we rest assured that we serve a God who alone knows. For Him there is no dividing line between what is spiritual and physical. He is the source of reality itself. What He reveals to us in objects is more real than we can comprehend. Whatever we fear, we can trust Him with the outcome because He alone knows.
Insight: He is the God who says, "as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways"
