And Breath Came Into Them

 

Thank You Lord
for breathing into
and bringing back
to life

my trust and hope
in Who You are
when my faith
is tried.

You establish hope anew.

“So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, ‘Son of man these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, “Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off.” Therefore prophesy and say to them, “Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O My people. I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. I will put My Spirit in you and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land.” ‘ “. Ezekiel 37:10,11,12,14 NKJV
