John 5:25 says, “The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.”
Jesus waited four days before he went to Bethany, the home of His dear friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. After greeting the two grieving sisters, Jesus went to Lazarus’ tomb. He prayed the prayer of faith and called Lazarus’ name—and Lazarus arose and walked out of the tomb.
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. —John 6:63
“Life” in the above verse is the Greek word zoe, which means “the God-kind of life.” Jesus said that He came not only that we would have life, but that we would have it more abundantly. Let the words of David be your daily prayer: “Quicken thou me according to thy Word.” Let Jesus speak His life into your situation.
Is there death in your relationship? Ask Jesus to speak life into it. Is there death in your finances? Ask Jesus to speak life into them. Is there death in your ministry? Ask Jesus to speak life into it.
Remember how God used Ezekiel to speak life into the dried bones in a valley of dried bones. This valley is a community/family/a life of “do no good in life”. They moved out of town of enrichment to form an “association of failures’ and to keep each others company. Whenever you see this sets of people, all they ever discuss is death, what satan has accomplished in their lives. They had surrendered to the life of stench and dishonor. So, they formed a settlement where everyone are equal in fate.
The Word of God says, “Come out of them.” “Evil communication corrupts”
Why did God commanded Abraham to leave his pedigree territory (Genesis 12), because God wanted to share the secret of everlasting Life with him, and if he had remained among his folks of limited visions, he may not catch what God was saying to him (Genesis 19:17-19). They would have ended up dragging him to their level.
Jesus called Lazarus out of the dead, and because He change not, He is calling someone also this day (Hebrews 3:13-15), if only you will recognize His voice and answer Him. The dead heard Him, you are not dead yet, you have better opportunity. He said, “I am life and resurrection; they that believe in Me shall live.”
Whatever the situation you are in this morning, there is hope for you.
The Book of Job say something profound, “For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth, And its stump may die in the ground, Yet at the scent of water it will bud And bring forth branches like a plant. Job 14:7-9 NKJV
Now that is a tree, what about you that is more intelligent, created in the image and in the likeness of Almighty God. No matter how long you have stayed in that condition, it is a New Day.
The man born deaf received his hearing apparatus (enablement) back from the Lord, the one born blind saw, and there was another oneone, which his family had given up on, they were fed up with his situation and they conspired together against him, and ejected him from their home (territory) and dump him by a porch for 38 years. This man, though his situation seemed dead but he also received life when the lover of his soul passed by. The man said, “I have no man to help” but (shut up), you have a Saviour who is enough for you. He is beautiful for every situation (Psalms 48: 1-2) Every dead or death receive life.
I dont know your situation today, actually I dont have to know, but I know something as I know my name – The Word of Life is available to you this day in the Scripture, your part is to believe it and you will see a tremendous 180′ degree turn around in every aspect of your life.
The Word of God says I overcame satan by the Blood of Jesus Christ and by the Word of my testimony (Revelation 12:11). From Today, I choose to belief God’s Word to live.

Isaiah 60:1 says, “Arise, Shine, your Light has come.” Remember, ‘in Him was life, His life was the light of men, the Light shine and darkness (death) cannot comprehend it.” John 1:4-5. IT IS A NEW DAY!
