No Walls

In The Same Place

19th August 2022

Scripture Reading: Ezekiel 37: 1-14


“The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,” (Ezekiel 37: 1)

The valley of dry bones speaks of a group of people, an army, who were murdered in the valley, and whose bodies degenerated until they all became dry bones. In that same valley where they were murdered, God sent Ezekiel to prophesy, and the entire dry bones came back to life. In the same place where their blood was spilled and they were reduced to bones, the miracle of mass resurrection took place.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in the same places where you went down, God will empower you to rise higher. In the same place where you encountered losses, you are about to witness a restoration of all that you lost, with compensation. The same things that made you cry are about to make you laugh; the same people that mocked you are about to celebrate you; the same people that rejected you are about to accept you.

In the same places where doors were shut at you, the doors are about to be opened. In the same places where your abilities and skills were disregarded, you will be called into the mountain of relevance and influence. The same things that hurt you badly will soon be reasons for you to be congratulated. The same opportunities that were beyond your reach will soon be within your reach. Your valley will witness a new celebration.

Go and announce to those who have seen your tears, shame, failures, setbacks, delays, denials, etc.: a new story is about to emerge, your status is about to change, the pains of the past will soon be replaced with tales of joy and laughter, the negative labels will soon be replaced with positive testimonies; and in the same places where you had negative outcomes, get set for the positive results that God is about to shower you with.

You may be in the valley, but your story will change for good in that valley. You may be in the valley, but in that same place of reduction, your increase is imminent.


In the same place where I went down, I will rise again; I receive my miracles, in Jesus’ name!
