Ezekiel 22:30 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.
The people and the country were sinning against God. No one would take a stand against wrong. No one would go to God in prayer. The need was for someone to stand up and try to make a difference. Someone who would cry out to God for forgiveness for the people.
He looked and looked and found none.
Today all over the world sin is rampant. Sin is destroying the world. The lack of knowledge about the truth is the problem. God is able. God still saves. God still hears prayer and answers. He still forgives people who call on Him.
What is the problem? His eyes run to and fro throughout the entire earth looking for someone. He wants to show Himself strong. He looks for a person who will stand up and honor and please Him. 2Chronicles 16:9
Right now there is a place in our community that needs someone who will just have the courage to speak up and tell them about Jesus and His work on the cross. Right now there are people that will be saved if you will but stand in the gap and ask God for their souls.
There are places across America right now that need a church. Someone needs to say I will go. I will start a church. I will risk my family and everything in me to raise the funds and start a church from scratch that will reach lost people with the gospel.
There are countries all over the world with very little gospel witness. You could be the person that God would have to stand in the gap and make a difference. He may be calling you to go as a missionary to that place.
There are people right now willing to go and going but they do not have the funds. There is a financial gap and though you are not called to go you could help them go. You could pray for them and support them and help them make a difference.
I tell you that God is looking for people who will make a difference. They will stand in the gap and make up the hedge. Why did God make you like He did? Why did He give you all that He gave you? What are you doing for the kingdom of God? How is your life making a difference? You were called to do much more than live a comfortable life and die! Stand in the gap. Make up the hedge. Use all that you are and have to make a difference for the Lord Jesus Christ.
