Christ Has Overcome

Read  Ezekiel 37:1 through 38:23


Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off (Ezekiel 37:11).


Have despair and hopelessness, those “twins” of darkness, ever gripped you so tightly you thought you couldn’t breathe?


Sometimes life can be ferocious, and not many escape its fury. An accident takes a spouse or child. They’re gone before we can say “I love you” one last time. A natural disaster wipes away everything we own. A fire chars a lifetime of expectations and memories.


We can see these twins each night in the faces of men and women as their stories unfold on TV. But though our lives might be devastated, is our hope gone? Are we cut off forever from God? Read these chapters and discover what Israel discovered: God breathes life into dead bones. No matter how tight the grip of despair and hopelessness, when our hope rests squarely on the Lord’s mercy, tragedy cannot crush us. Disaster cannot destroy us. In this world we will certainly have troubles, but we can take courage. Christ has overcome the world.



“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”
