The Breath Of God

Ezekiel 37:1-10

What you are believing God for has not come to pass. You believe the Word and know that God is able to do above and beyond your highest thoughts, hopes, and dreams. But your dream appears dead in the water. In fact the bones of your dream have started to decay. Now you’ve allowed the enemy to start you to think that you’ve missed God. Except for the fact that the voice of your dream still cries out to you. It won’t leave you alone. Believer, your dream is not dead. You have the power to speak life into it. The phrase “and man became a living soul” is translated “man became another speaking spirit”. God trained Adam in the Garden of Eden to speak things into existence. His first lesson was naming all the animals. A bear was not a bear until Adam said it was. If you would allow me to use spiritual imagination. See God forming an animal and bringing it to Adam in lifeless form. Then whatever Adam called it, that’s what it was. As He spoke breath was expelled from his mouth and now the bear could rise to life and be a bear.
When we speak breath is expelled. Because we are born again, the Spirit of God resides within is, we have Gods DNA. As a result, we have the power to speak things into existence. It is not our breath or power, but we have access to the power of God through Jesus Christ. We are the prophets of our own destiny. We spend much time prophesying over others but not ourselves.
Note that in Ezekiel’s vision God did not fix anything. He told Him to prophesy over the dry bones. The first thing that happened is the bones came together, then flesh covered them. But they were still lifeless. Things maybe starting to come together for you but the progress God showed you is not happening.
Notice that God the told Ezekiel to prophesy to the 4 winds. I believe the winds represent the breath of God.

Then said he into me, prophesy into the wind, prophesy son of man, and say to the wind, This 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 breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Ezekiel 37:9-10

Let us prophesy the breath of God flows through every area of our lives so that those things of purpose that seem dead live and rise up!
