Nothing is impossible for God. He is the giver of life.
The belief that you cannot do it is a scam. The fear of failure is an expression of faithlessness. As long as God sanctions what we are doing, we must be rest assured of success. We must not limit God’s work by our unbelief.
He said in today’s first reading,
“I will open your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land…”
Listening to God’s prompting and with faith, let us speak to the dead bones in our lives. Surely they will rise again.
May all that seem dead in our lives come back to life in Jesus name. May our faith in God’s power be firm that we may speak to all our circumstances with all boldness and full assurance of testimonies. Amen.
