Gap Standers

Ezekiel 22-24; Revelation 9

“I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.” Ezekiel 22:30
“The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons…” Revelation 9:20

God’s heart of mercy is revealed even in the midst of His judgment of sin. He is looking for those who will stand before Him in the gap - the gap between a holy God and sinful men - the gap between our actions and our good intentions.
Will God find “gap standers” in our generation?
Even in the last day’s judgment, God gives the nations opportunities to repent. Someone will need to communicate that message to the nations in the midst of judgment, a gap stander. God desires the spiritual walls of salvation and holiness to be built up around each family and community as a defense against temptation and sin - walls that resist the influence of sin, not walls that keep out people or limit our capacity to love our neighbors.
Where are the gap standers?

Lord Jesus, thank you that you stood in the gap for me and my sin. Give me that same heart for others that you have.

Daily Prayer Guide

John Ervin
“Please pray as I plan and execute video projects in Panama. I will be coaching an indigenous Embera video team, intentionally striving to impact on the group in discipleship. Pray for continued growth and development of the Global Media Network. Pray for guidance as I encourage, equip and assist our team members around the world. I have a trip to Panama planned for early this month, another trip to Germany and Central Asia in October, then to northern Manitoba in November to film the story of a Christian runner and finally to British Columbia in December. Praise God for the Fresno ACTION program orientation that took place in the summer. I was challenged by the faith of these many young people. The training went well and I was able to pray with many of the team members, and to coach and challenge them in what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Pray for me as I lead the Mini-Summit for our Global Media Network in October in Central Asia. Pray also for traveling safely.”

For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. ~ Isaiah 61:11
