Though you may feel as a victim, God is working right now to bring justice into your situation. Pray in consonance with God. Find strength in the victory described when God promises the restoration of the Holy Lands. Repeat over and over 36:26, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove your heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh.” This is the same promise of the Lord in Jeremiah 31:31-34.
Even if you feel that your life is as dry as the bones of chapter 37, the Lord can remake you into the image of Christ risen. Surrender to the same power that raised Jesus from the dead and you will find your weary bones quivering with life.
As you hear God speak this message of power, become quiet and listen to the specific words of strength and energy that the Lord is speaking to your heart.
“A new heart I give to you.” 36:26
Heart of stone to heart of flesh 36;27
Breath entering the dry bones 37:5
Your Spirit is within me. 37:14
