I am sitting in meetings with Commissioner Christine MacMillan and she is a great mover within the realms of Social Justice.
We have been moved by her speaking, but most importantly the Holy Spirit has fallen on us.
Here is what The Lord has impressed upon me (I know it is different from person to person sometimes) :
There is very real darkness out in our world, and sometimes that darkness is also within us (Christ-followers). I am reminded of the words of General John Gowans a number of years ago. He said, “there is an automated voice on the trains of London that says ‘mind the gap’.” The dear General went on to say that as Soldiers of our Army we are to help others mind the gap.
Within the darkness there are those dying in our world and who will stand in the gap for these people? Who will stand in the gap for those who are about to be lost forever?
There is light…and darkness is just the absence of that light of God.
Can those of us who are Christ-followers help to bring that light into hose dark places? Can we stand in the gap for those who are falling and dying?
Ezekiel 22:30 “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.”
I pray that God looks down upon us and finds someone, anyone to stand in the gap and bring the light into the darkness!!!
“I pray that God looks down upon us and finds someone, anyone to stand in the gap and bring the light into the darkness!!!”
Immediately upon reading this, I thought that God has already indeed provided Someone, to “stand in the gap” for us…and brought the Light into the darkness…I thank Him for His Son, Jesus for doing this for all of us. I know that you meant a person…a prayer warrior…someone who will care enough to be there in those dark times but when humans fail to do this as they often do…we are never alone…never will He lose His grip on us. There is hope in the darkness always. Blessings.
