30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the LORD GOD.– Ezekiel 22 : 30
This thought-provoking statement by Issac Newton, ‘ We build too many walls and not enough bridges’.. is very true in our today’s world of chaos. Every time we face a problematic situation or counter an argumentative relationship, we quickly think of building walls to prevent disappointment. But our Everlasting Creator shares HIS vision to His chosen prophet Ezekiel about bridging the gap in the wall of prayer, instead of building walls of dissension. And the element of surprise is that..Our LORD wants just one person, only one to stand in the gap!..Would you like to be that ‘one world-changer‘?!
Power of Intercession
As we draw near to the end of 2020, we all hope for a better 2021..Every year is always pre-planned and perfectly designed by our Omniscient God. You might think..‘Why was 2020 such a disaster if God had planned it perfectly?’..The answer to this is hidden in the complaint God had against man through the words of Ezekiel. When mankind sins profusely against the Holy God, it kindles His wrath to destroy the peace on earth...plagues, natural calamities, deadly diseases, cosmic complications and inter- & intra-national wars are a result of God’s indignation, which HE never wants us to experience.
Any mistake requires a punishment to be avoided the next time. Yet, if someone takes your stand and intercedes for you, you might escape the punishment…Now…that is called ‘grace’..Today our Creator seeks for true people who could stand in the gap between the wicked world and the Heavenly realms to pray for the salvation, security and safety of every nation, tribe and language. While talking about this urgent need of bridging the gap, God was sad seeing that HE could find NO ONE on earth to do this great task. When I read this verse, I was prompted to say to my Heavenly Father,’Lord..I want to fill the gap with my prayers for the sins of others’..What about you?…You are very special to HIM, the apple of HIS eyes..Are you willing to surrender to HIS call today?
