Deliverance Can Come In Stages: Part 1

Deliverance can come in stages - part 1

If you have been living in a difficult situation and your problem has been solved half-way, do not give up because in some situations deliverance comes in stages.

One example of this is seen in the Valley of Dry Bones which was filled by very many bones which were very dry. 

The Lord God told Ezekiel to Say to them, "O dry bones hear the word of God! Thus says the Lord to you:'I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live. I will put sinews on you, place flesh on your bones, cover you with skin and breathe life into you and you shall live.' " (Ezekiel 37:1-6) 

As Ezekiel prophesied as he had been instructed, he heard a rattling noise and the bones came together. He also saw sinew and flesh come on the bones and they were covered with skin. However, they did not have breath. (Ezekiel 37:7-8)  

God then told him, "Prophesy to the breath and say to it, 'Thus says the Lord: "Come from the four winds, O breath and enter these so that they may live."'(Ezekiel 37:9) 

Ezekiel then prophesied as commanded and breath came and entered the bones and they lived. They stood up and they were an exceedingly great army. (Ezekiel 37:10)
O dry bones hear the Word of the Lord ... You shall live Ezekiel 37

We can thus see that even though God had said He would cover them with sinews, flesh and skin and breathe life into them, the deliverance that transformed these dead, dry bones into an exceedingly large army, came in 2 stages.

The first stage resulted in sinews, muscles and skin covering the bones but they were still dead.

The second stage involved breathe entering the bones and they became an exceedingly large army.  

Therefore if God  has promised you something and you initially only get a part of it after following all His instructions the way Ezekiel did, do not give up.

Continue doing what He had already told you to do as you pray to ask Him if there is something else you need to do to get your complete deliverance.
