Is it repairable?

This question comes in different scenarios. For example: (1) a lady who received a doctor’s report of fertility problems might ask, “is it possible to conceive naturally or would assisted reproduction yield good results?”(2) spouses with marital challenges might ask, “can it ever go back to days of our first love“, or “could it ever be sweet again?” (3) parents with estranged children might ask, “can we ever have that loving tete-a-tete with our kids again?” (4) a promising business man who has just lost some money to a particular venture might ask, “how do I recover?” (5) a student who happens not to be doing so well in school might ask, “can I really cope and get good grades?” (6) someone who has just gone through a divorce might ask, “can I find joy again?” (7) a widower/widow might ask, “how do I get on again?” (8) a sick patient might ask, “can I ever experience good health again?” etc

Just like the scene in Ezekiel 37, the prophet was taken through a valley of dry bones and God asked him, “Son of man, can these bones live again?
Note that he had gone back and forth the valley and had seen and evaluated the rottenness of the bones. My responses might have been, “don’t think so!”, “really, you must be kidding me”! But I see diplomacy in Ezekiel’s answer. He erred on the side of caution lest he is said to not believe. Or could it be said that Ezekiel knew the power of his tongue. Proverbs 18:21)

What happens next? God instructed him to speak the words of God to these bones. And as he spoke, things started happening.

Words of God.

John 1:1-5. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 6:63. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The truth is: Yes, it is repairable. Yes, it is recoverable. Yes, it is renewable. Yes, it can be revived. Yes, yes, yes. Get the right words to speak and speak them to those situations.

    Experiencing a rather frustrating prayer moment on a particular issue, I was asking God just few days ago, ‘is this repairable’?, as this just seems humanely impossible to resolve.. when no response I tried asking again , if not, then Lord, ‘let’s draw the line and re-create a new chapter’, still yet no word and then some restless frustration followed……
    I just love the Spirit of this young woman.. Always in tune with the Holy Spirit. This is indeed word in season for me. Thank you Tope this is geared me up to pursue again but this time around, using the ‘right words’- the word of God. Look forward to sharing a happy testimony at the end of it all.
