The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.
He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, `Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
“There’s moments we all experience in life where we find ourselves having a funeral for dreams that we once really believed in.”
A sermon from Steven Furtick, Elevation Church’s lead pastor, inspired the song *listen below*as he detailed the funeral of the prophet Elisha in 2 Kings. Intending to bury another man, a pair of Israelites were standing near Elisha’s gravesite when they saw their enemy fast-approaching. Scared, they quickly threw the dead body into Elisha’s grave. Miraculously, when the body touched the dead prophet’s bones, the man came to life.
Elisha still had a resurrection miracle left in his bones, and God is still in the business of bringing dead things back to life.
“If we’ll trust God even with the seemingly dead areas of our lives, if we’ll believe in the power of God, if we’ll declare resurrection power over everything we sow, nothing will be wasted.”
