"I looked for someone 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 no one.
Recently I spoke with a lady that told me she studies the bible and all the religions. Years ago she watched the movie ‘The Passion’ and stated: “I’m really mad at God! Who could do such a thing to their own child?” she went on to relate her feelings to me about God the abusive parent.
I had never thought of God this way so I was very careful with my response. I waited and then replied “Have you ever worked for a boss that would tell you to go do something, but that same boss would never do that work himself?” she thought for a moment and nodded yes. I said “How did it make you feel? Personally I would resent it."
I went on to say, "Now this is the hard part;
Jesus was God, He came to do the job Himself, His eyes looked for a man to stand in the gap and found no one, so He came and stood for us. God is the greatest boss on earth.”
It was beautiful transformation that only a mother could have, I could actually see the anger melt off her face and turn to love.
If God is asking you to intercede for someone today, and I pray that He will, remember He dwells in you and He will do it through you, because He needs you to stand in the GAP for others.
