The Sound of Restoration
We see an example of the sound of restoration in Ezekiel’s encounter with God in the valley of dry bones.
God brought Ezekiel to the valley of dry bones, where he saw very many dry bones. After the Lord had showed Ezekiel around, the Lord asked him, “Son of man can this bones live?
In response to the Lord’s inquiry, Ezekiel said “O Lord God, you know”. Any wise man could have responded the same way, because it was a very hopeless sight. Only God could have an answer for such a situation because it was beyond man.
Ezekiel Prophesied as Commanded
Then the Lord commanded Ezekiel to prophesy, to the dry bones. When Ezekiel prophesied, he started hearing a sound, a sound of dry bones moving, and connecting back to one another.
Ezekiel 37:7 (ESV) “So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone.”
When Ezekiel added his voice to the sound the Lord was making in heaven, the dry bones started coming together. The dry bones were actually reflecting and responding, to the sound of heaven; it is the sound of restoration.
There is an heavenly sound, that produces restoration; we will call it, the sound of restoration. When the sound of restoration is released, any hopeless situation can be turned around for the glory of God. It does not matter what the enemy has stolen, killed, or destroyed, the sound of restoration can change everything.
Today, we are releasing the sound of restoration over the fourth month of 2020. Let the sound of restoration pervade and prevail over our lives, families, businesses, careers, ministries and projects, in Jesus’ name.
