Something is spiritually will hundred 20 evidences the Lord is ready to raise you up and rejuvenate your spirit by David, the joy of the Lord is my strength.

This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative if your spiritual life feels is empty and lifeless old skeleton in the desert. Dr. Evans has some good news for you today. As he explains how God can restore you to the point where you feel like dancing. Let's turn to Ezekiel chapter 37, as he begins our lesson that says first I will finish high school and start college and then I was dying. Finish college and start working that I was dying to get married and have children and I was dying my children to grow up and get out that I was dying to retire and now I'm just dying and suddenly I realize I had forgotten to live.

Many among us are dying looking for that next thing that happened that we hope will give us the life where having trouble finding suffering from dryness and spiritual stagnation where I get up and go and gotten up on and we don't know where to find if this is your mobile state something is spiritually wrong in your life situation among God's people, Israel in the Old Testament.

The problem is stated for us very clearly in verses two and verse 11 of chapter 37 he calls me God because links the past among the roundabout and behold there were many on the surface of the valley, and will they were very drunk bones, skeletons, God says in this explanation. These bones are my people Israel, and say so we got talking bones will leave to be hold and we are completely, Israel was suffering from spiritual penis's supernatural ossuary, a place where bones would be gathered in the nation of Israel before final burial.

These bones had to bake in the hot sun.

When I just told that the people died, but the ball this makes a point to let us know were very drunk in the state for long time, become a way of life to be dry bones all configured confused and jumbled together like pieces of a puzzle in a box. Nothing connected.

Nothing was chaos explains what I miss is you know if your dry because you verse 11 says that was no God's people today as God's people that are drowning in a sea of hopelessness surrounded by a land called always, no telling when you finally believe you see the oncoming train. Many of God's people are living in a perpetual fond of this plan. On the overcast sky is simply that we become being tired so stating was this reality that God is given. Verse three all can be done to fix the situation of drivers not only you know whether this could be fixed while they would all. Time is that you had created. This had created dryness is created distance and distance from God had created God in their own land. Now, God exiled them to the other nations removed from ship with God and during this time of removal will become the obedience they is because your distant distant is because the disobedient you with July on will have a problem with. But if you live in and about problems every day you wake up to John us that has occurred. If your ability to dance again and in the Bible is always the celebration of rejoicing celebration on the inside as this is the exception is the mole and dancing is the exception because there have been distance between you and God only one thing that causes this and that is disobedience is called place to be so twelve-month because it's so far away from the sun distance has made all frigid Paris is blazing hot twelve-month causes so close to the sun affects temperature.

Some Christians upload told things finally close to the center restraints they live close to the sun.

Always the flame you want to know what's wrong with all the time. Most of us know, most of where we are not consistently call we just happened distance to the accident you become so if you rail you a long way away, you can know close your dry consistently living in your living a whole.

It talks about the rebellion he talks about the disobedience he says in verse 18 data file with their idols idolatry with an image. Idolatry is intimacy with an image is saying that takes the place of God in your life that once this web idols and when they exiled worshiping all church praying worshiping and doing religious thing religiously and worshiping one question radio programs on Christian TV show church services special program Christian books Christian songs Christian seminars Christian conferences and still be dry church when you read every day somewhere so and to augment and there is not room for two sauces to meet their needs, their problems and fix this situation. The problem with this value problem. Make all the help of the person dry nation was in the rate was because they were separated from God and was separated due to disobedience consistently. Hopelessness did that mean there is disobedience in your life that have created distance and that is responsible for your dryness. Now you can skip if you cannot want to pay attention to what you may not like it but it will make a mess.

Dry, you can go to people go to position go to Palm Apple possession McInnes Drive and you will go to something else to fix you something else you went to become the title because you going to something other than the true God to meet your need idolatry… You do not have to worship the true you can worship the paper that came from the tree called body anything to make the true God will all take away your dance rejoice your spiritual celebration, but is not driven says in the middle of all those problems there's a promise will tell us what it is just a moment.

God tells them in verses 12 and 13 of chapter 37 prophesy and say to them the graves and I'm going to cause you to come out of your grave my people. I will bring you into the land of Israel you will know I am the Lord your God. When I opened your graves and caused the compound of your grave. My people God says your spiritually dead physically. That's why they could speak and say Arboles they would like good news and that is ongoing make these bones live again and again will you know this is me again don't know anyone who can make these bones know whether these bones can live again and the good news for you today you are bone can live again can dance rejoice again because God says you believe this is called a resurrection probably leave if today you come out the gray resurrection.

You will be careful to observe my ordinances as a description of what the Bible calls the new company company to other words words will to do two things.

In chapter 37 firstly tell all these bones to the word of God to say, don't take the proper file don't type words to the spiritual medium bones, because if it's only words can medicate. That's not too distant words.

Words bones. He said that were seven noise bottles came to see you soon and what was going on that wasn't there was some jerky that was good stuff that was unconnected by the word took place. The problem is that one little thing with that lot of shaking going on, but it was lifeless movement. You can't hear the word of God.

You day you jump up and shout and feel bones, but can only make the connection can give you breath. You don't live without. Attached, but what I like. I would know Brett well live with skin get dry because it takes more prophecy and knowing the prophecy in order to remove your online session to sign what I said is not the son of man, and say where my spirit within you were drafting the word will mean spirit when God created God's will there be God's will.

He also did something and the spirit God formed man from the dust of the ground rules the breath of life and man became a living soul is being able fundamental, but not sufficient, but enough, but it won't change God charge rated Christian but you could still be no disconnect only, not just connection.
