Ezekiel 37:1-14
In any story of survival, one of the most important elements is hope. In a struggle for survival, if hope is lost, death often follows soon after. However, if those in peril hold on to hope, their chances to make it through can often increase. Many oncologists actually point to hope as the greatest psychological contributor to recovery for cancer patients. Hope is a powerful motivator.

In the valley of dry bones, God articulates the collective spiritual and psychological state of the people of Israel: "Behold, they say, 'Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off' " (v. 11). Yet, as dry as those bones were, as distant as hope could ever be, God brought life out of death in that valley, just as he can bring hope out of our deepest despair.
