The valley of dry bones represents a place of shattered hope, forgotten expectations and lost confidence but God said that the dry bones will live again.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: John 11:25. Bones are often associated with dead bodies with death itself. A dry human bone symbolizes a human body that has been dead for an extended period of time: in some cases, for hundreds or thousands of years. By this time, it is impossible for anyone in the right frame of mind to contemplate any means by which such bones will come back to life again. This was the situation in the valley of dry bones when God asked Ezekiel, “Son of man, can these bones live?” Knowing well that it was impossible by any human means for that he was standing before the One that created the universe by the power of His word, Ezekiel tactically answer by saying “O Lord God, thou knowest. “Then the Lord asked the prophet to prophecy to the bones, and in Ezekiel 37:7, as soon as he prophesied, this happened: “…there was a noise, and behold a shaking and the bones came together, bone to his bone. I therefore prophesy to everything that stands as dry bones in your life and to every symbol of death in your family; hear the word of the Lord: Be restore back to life now in the Name of Jesus. The challenging situation you find yourself today is never beyond God’s ability to revive. The nation of Israel has lost her spiritual bearing with God, scattered abroad, and was devastated but God reassured Ezekiel that He will rejuvenate them. Can you trust God for yours?

In Ezekiel’s vision of dry bones brought back to life by God’s Spirit, the resurrection of the bones is used as a symbol. Ezekiel’s vision is not directly related to life after death, but rather with the salvation of God’s people from captivity and exile. Some people are locked up in a strange land, enjoying the pleasures of sin. Some are addicted to harmful behaviors, burdened by their conscience and far away from the Spirit of God sends the breath of life into them; their return to their Creator can be likened to new life rising from the grave. To anyone that is in bondage, captivity or exile, to anyone that has been displaced from his or her position, to anyone that is being told that he or she has reached a point of no return in life, I decree once again: Let there be a noise and a shaking from heaven that will set you free from now on in Jesus’ Name. The dry bones were sitting quietly in their forgotten state, fully surrendered to the power of death that held them bound. They were without any hope until God told Ezekiel to prophesy to them. The same God will make the dry bones in your life to live again.
