Sometimes in life we condole so many, too many things and they end up going out of hand. We wait and watch situations take their toll on us, we wait and watch situations frustrate our destinies and we don’t do a thing. Ezekiel 37: 1;” THE HAND of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.
2 And He caused me to pass round about among them, and behold, there were very many [human bones] in the open valley or plain, and behold, they were very dry.
3 And He said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, You know!
The rest of what happened you already know. God wanted Ezekiel to take charge of the situation and that was what Ezekiel did. Then in verse 11, God said to him ,
Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, Our bones are dried up and our hope is lost; we are completely cut off.—— Ezekiel was to take the message of hope to the children of God that they were not forgotten but that He will bring them out of whatever calamities they were in and place them in their own land. The war was first won in the spirit realm, a reaction to the dry bones by Ezekiel prophesying on them before they came to life.
Jabez on the other hand was tired of living the life he lived and reacted to it
1st Chronicles 4:10 ” 10 Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and You would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me! And God granted his request.”
Hannah, Samuel’s mother reacted to her situation and Samuel came forth! We can go on and on talking about those that reacted to their situations in faith believing that Jesus can heal them, the paralytic man and his friends that helped him, the woman with the issue of blood, the Centurion etc. All these people heard about Jesus and His works and said to themselves ‘if this man can do all we have heard about, he can do mine too’. They first made up their minds, filled up with faith and took the most wonderful steps of their lives. Until they got His attention or touched Him, there was no going back, no matter the distraction, no matter the challenges, they kept moving forward.
In your waiting on God for the fruit of the womb, do not let your faith waiver or allow anything or anyone stop you from getting the Master’s attention. Be like the Syrophonician woman, be like blind Bartimaeus, like Jabez, be like Jacob that did not let the Angel of God go until he was blessed. Be like the woman with the issue of blood! ——— Do not let Him go, catch his attention, keep pushing and keep prophesying like Ezekiel until that dream, your baby, becomes a reality. God is not a man, that He should lie, He has said it, He will also do it for you. Hold on! Hold on! U r a mum /dad in Jesus name.
