Even in the darkest hours of life and circumstance, God can bring hope. How many times in your life have you been in a circumstance where you felt so empty that it seemed your bones were dried up and there was nothing left of life inside you? Perhaps you hit that desperate spot because of your own sin and you are suffering the consequences for your actions (much like the people of Israel). Don’t despair. Even the bones can repent, turn to God, and have the breath of life breathed back into them. Or, perhaps your circumstances are not necessarily the result of your sin but are more like the suffering of Job or Joseph. Even in those moments God can breath meaning into them that are deeper and beyond our understanding. Don’t forget. God is the one who created humanity by simply “breathing” into a lump of clay. If He could make life out of what was dead, how much more could He breath life and meaning into something that was once alive to begin with. Look for this resurrection hope in your life today and begin breathing in the wind/breath of life.
