“I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one” (Ezekiel 22:30 NLT).


The Lord told the prophet Ezekiel that He had looked for someone to “stand in the gap” of the wall surrounding Israel, but found no one. The physical walls surrounding Jerusalem were still standing at this time, but the spiritual walls were already breached. It wouldn’t be long before the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzer tore down the physical walls too.
Will the Lord find someone to “stand in the gap” for our families, for our churches, for our cities, for our land? Will the Lord find us willing to stand in the gap for Him?
PRAYER: Dear Father, our yes is on the table. We say yes to standing in the gap for You. Empower us by Your Spirit. Give us Your zeal and strength for the work. Help us to overcome the temptation for comfort that we might stand in the gap during the night, knowing that morning will soon arrive. In Jesus’ name, amen.
