Devotional Thoughts:

In how many occasions does the Lord seek someone to stand in the gap of intercession? His eyes often wander through the land to see if there is a man or a woman who would answer the call to intercessory prayer. Believers who will seek God with all there hearts and minds. That as they see the need and condition of this world, they may have the same God’s heart. In Jeremiah 5: 1 says, ““Run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem; See now and know; And seek in her open places If you can find a man, If there is anyone who executes judgment, Who seeks the truth, And I will pardon her.

Today there is a gap that separates the great need in the world, and a loving God who wants to act with love and mercy. There is a great urgency in the heart of God, a strong desire to find someone to say, “Here I am, I’ll stand in the gap!” I wonder how we will respond to that call of intercession? Are we willing to put aside indifference and apathy? This will take a price from us, but if we don’t do this, then who will? Someone will have to do it!

The repression with Israel was the same. In Ezekiel 13: 5 it stated, ” You have not gone up into the gaps to build a wall for the house of Israel to stand in battle on the day of the Lord.” Today God calls us to put ourselves in the gap and build a protective wall. There is a spiritual battle that will only be won in prayer! There is no other strategy that will give us the complete victory over the enemy. Let us pray to be those who will rise up in arms and we would put ourselves in the gap to intercede for our family, church and city.
