Spoken Words’ Power

Ezekiel 37:4-10 NIV

[4] Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! [5] This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. [6] I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord. ‘ ” [7] So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. [8] I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. [9] Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ” [10] So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

DISCOVERY:

  1. What did the Lord commanded Ezekiel to do to the dry bones in vv 4-6?
  2. What happened when Ezekiel prophesied as commanded in vv 7-8? Were the bones become alive?
  3. What did Ezekiel prophesied in vv9-10? Were the bones become alive?

UNDERSTANDING:

  1. Why do you think Ezekiel has to prophesy to the dry bones? Do you think God can’t do the prophecy Himself? 
  2. Why do you think that Ezekiel need to speak words of blessings to the dry bones? 
  3. Can we also speak blessings to our own life or to the life of those around us? Will it be powerful? Why or why not?

APPLICATION:

  1. Name a promise of God that you can claim from the Bible. Speak words of prophecy or declaration that it will happen in your life. 
  2. Do you speak negative words about your life or to the life of those around you (eg I will never be rich or I will never have time to be active in the ministry)? Stop saying negative words and start declaring the victory that Jesus won on the cross.
