SPRING FORTH NOW 2022

God grabbed me. God’s Spirit took me up and set me down in the middle of an open plain strewn with bones. He led me around and among them—a lot of bones! There were bones all over the plain—dry bones, bleached by the sun. He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Master God, only you know that.” He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones: ‘Dry bones, listen to the Message of God!’” God, the Master, told the dry bones, “Watch this: I’m bringing the breath of life to you and you’ll come to life. I’ll attach sinews to you, put meat on your bones, cover you with skin, and breathe life into you. You’ll come alive and you’ll realize that I am God!” I prophesied just as I’d been commanded. As I prophesied, there was a sound and, oh, rustling! The bones moved and came together, bone to bone. I kept watching. Sinews formed, then muscles on the bones, then skin stretched over them. But they had no breath in them. He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath. Prophesy, son of man. Tell the breath, ‘God, the Master, says, Come from the four winds. Come, breath. Breathe on these slain bodies. Breathe life!’” So I prophesied, just as he commanded me. The breath entered them and they came alive! They stood up on their feet, a huge army. Then God said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Listen to what they’re saying: ‘Our bones are dried up, our hope is gone, there’s nothing left of us.’ “Therefore, prophesy. Tell them, ‘God, the Master, says: I’ll dig up your graves and bring you out alive—O my people! Then I’ll take you straight to the land of Israel. When I dig up graves and bring you out as my people, you’ll realize that I am God. I’ll breathe my life into you and you’ll live. Then I’ll lead you straight back to your land and you’ll realize that I am God. I’ve said it and I’ll do it. God’s Decree.’”

Ezekiel 37:1-14 (MSG)


Today is Christmas Day and we gather with family and friends to celebrate the coming of the new; new Spirit for a new life that is unrestrained by what is. With the birth of Christ, we not only get an enduring King but also with Him, new life and new hope, harmony with the will of God for our life and life more abundantly and it is available to all, no matter what is or where you are in life. Although we do not know exactly the date of Jesus’ birth, we celebrate at the end of our calendar year on the verge of the coming of a New Year. Interestingly enough, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is born in a manger; a trough for which animals eat because there was no room in the inn; the place perceived as “appropriate” and/or “acceptable." The good news of Christ’s birth, the coming of new life, and new hope directly contradict everything we thought yet it is exactly what we desired; unexpected possibilities. Today celebrate your gift of unexpected possibilities by choosing to Breath: New Life; inhaling possibilities and exhaling the constraints of your life, life’s toxicity which prevents you from expecting and living in God's promises for your life and life more abundantly. Speak to your bones, the foundation and fragments of your life, the what is and cause the Spirit of God’s presence, power, and promises to come and you will see, All Things Have Become New; an exceedingly great army, power to live in God’s promises for your life. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
