KEY VERSE: Ezekiel 37:13–14 (God to Israel)
Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I promised you I would never leave you or forsake you. I promised you I would be with you always. Death is not your destiny—I am. You may feel defeated. You may have given up. You may have lost your way. But that is when I do my best work. There is nothing you’ve done that I can’t redeem. And no story is complete until I write the final chapter. Stop looking down or feeling helpless. Look up and seek me. Look up and find hope.
You may think you’ve blown the opportunity I gave you to make a difference in the world. But I am just getting started. Your journey has many paths, and you are about to begin a new one. Rise up and follow me. It won’t be easy, but I will give you everything you need, including teammates to walk with and serve beside. Sometimes you will need them to carry you and other times they will need your love, support, encouragement, and strength. Rise up and live for me today and forever.
Is there any area in your life you’ve given up on? Is there a relationship or dream you never thought would be restored or fulfilled? Thank God for his presence in your life, and acknowledge his power and wisdom. Pray for God to revive the area of your life that needs it most, and trust him for the results.
