When I was a teenager, my sister gave me a Bible that had a quote written on the inside cover that said ‘God and one man makes a majority’. I really liked this statement. But at the time, I didn’t understand the volume it spoke.
I believed it meant that if God was on your side you didn’t need anyone else. He would be the overwhelming factor to bring you the victory in your situation.
God can change and use you
Over the years I have seen this statement come to life, not only in the Bible, but in my life and in the life of many around me. I have seen God take me out of being just another young girl growing up in a rural village area. A girl with not much hope, to being a woman of much worth in the things He has allowed me to accomplish.
God has literally taught me almost everything I needed to know to be a success in my jobs at every level. He gave me the courage to complete my education (up to this point). God has taken me out of a few situations that I feel would have left me in a terrible position. He vindicated me when people came against me.
God’s Blessings fall on those who trust Him
I have also watched and seen God bless my friends and family for trusting in Him and placing Him first in their lives. After many years of struggle He blessed a relative with their own building and business; He blessed my friends with promotions who wholeheartedly serve God and place Him first and work as unto the Lord; I have seen Him restore marriages and taken care of health issues.

Is there anything too hard for God to do
So my question today is – is there anything too hard for God to do? And, can these dry bones live?
In Ezekiel 37: 3-6 God was speaking to Ezekiel in a valley with many bones and asked if these dry bones could live.
God asked him to prophesy to them to live.
In verses 5 & 6 the Bible says “ Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath and spirit to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin. And I will put breath and spirit in you. And you [dry bones] shall live. You shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord.
Today you shall live, as God intended you to live. Don’t be overwhelmed by the waters or the fire all around you. He is the same God that caused these dry bones to come to live and form ‘an exceeding great host’.
Today, your dreams may be all dry and dusty in a valley, lost and forgotten. But if God has given you these dreams, then I say unto you to trust in the Mighty Right Hand of God. Speak to your bones to come to life and live, Amen.
