Hopeless Place

Description

Ezekiel found himself in a valley full of bones; not necessarily where he wanted to be. But one lesson he was going to learn was that our current location doesn't have to be our final destination.

"The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones” Ezekiel 37:1.

THINK

Everyone, at some point, has been somewhere they didn't necessarily want to be. Maybe it was in a career that seemed to be going nowhere. Maybe it was in an emotional state that didn't look like it would ever turn around. Wherever it was, our location was not where we hoped to be.

Ezekiel found himself in a valley full of bones; not necessarily where he wanted to be. But one lesson he was going to learn was that our current location doesn't have to be our final destination.

Where you are is not where you will end up. If you are in a location that seems hopeless and helpless, remember that God can get you out; you just need to trust in Him.

PRAY

Ask God to help you see past your current location and instead to see where He wants you to go. Ask Him for the discipline and discernment to get to where He wants you to be.

ACT

To get where God wants you to go, you've got to recognize where you are. Take some time to write down the "location" you are in (emotionally, relationally, financially, spiritually). Then write next to it, "My current location doesn't have to be my final destination!"
