Topic: WHO WILL STAND IN THE GAP?
Ezekiel 22:30-31 (KJV)
 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.  Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.
God doesn’t need to have many people before He can accomplish His purposes. Since time immemorial, He has always sought for those who are available, even if it’s just one person, to channel His purposes through that individual.
There’s a gap between heaven and earth; a very big gap between the throne of grace in heaven and our dwelling here on earth. But God has prescribed the pipeline or channel with which we can fill in this gap; God uses our prayer as a channel through which He unleashes His Will. Even if it’s just one individual praying according to the Will of God, that’s more than enough to fill in the gap, so that the Will of God will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Our theme Scripture reveals how God sought for a man, and for that matter a woman, who would stand in the gap to avert His wrath. But since there was none, the people had to suffer the consequences of their misdeeds.
Are you available? Who will stand in the gap to avert God’s wrath on the sons of disobedience? Who will stand in the gap through whom the Will of God in heaven will be done on earth? Will you be the one?
