No One Is Too Lost To Be Saved! (Eze 37) by @ifyrae #LAFruits Devotional

Reading: Ezekiel 37, Psalm 104

No One Is Too Lost To Be Saved!

TEXT: “And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.” Ezekiel 37:3 (KJV)

Have you known people whom you thought were too far lost to be found? Someone for whom it seemed useless to pray for? The dry bones in Ezekiel 37 represent people who are unbelievers or believers who have backslid. The Bible says, “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1 John 5:12). If a person does not have Jesus, his bones are bleached, white, and dry. Spiritually speaking, he has no life.

Just as water brings the parched earth to life, God’s Word and living water of His Spirit will bring dry souls new life. Isaiah 44:3 says, “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring.”

When Mary asked, “How can this be?” the angel Gabriel told her, “Nothing is impossible with God.” And when the disciples asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” The Bible is saying that without Christ we can’t do anything, but through Christ all things are possible. God never wants us to lose faith that He can give life-even if it appears that a situation is hopeless. We have all heard the proverb where there is life there is hope (Ecclesiastes 9:4). Yet with God there is even hope when there appears to be no life!

The Bible says, never give up! Keep speaking life to and over them and God will do the reviving!

LEARN and APPLY: Nothing is too hard for God! What may appear hopeless and dead to you and me is a field full of possibilities for the Lord.

Pray: Lord, I thank You that You are the God of impossibility, help us to look to you for everything even when it looks humanly hopeless!
