Someone to Stand in the Gap

Listen
"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."
Every Christian is called to serve God—not just preachers or missionaries or evangelists. Romans 12:4–5 says, “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other” (NLT).
We’re all part of this one body of Christ, and each of us has a different work to do. Because we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other and need each other. And each of us has been given the ability by God to do certain things well.
God is looking for people to use in that capacity. In Ezekiel 22 God said, “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” (verse 30 NLT).
“I looked for someone. . . .” Think about that. God is searching. Right now, God is searching for someone to use—a man, a woman, a boy, or a girl. He is looking for someone who will raise their hand and say, “Here I am. Send me.”
You may not be a preacher, but you do have a pulpit. A pulpit is a platform. A pulpit is opportunity. A pulpit is your sphere of influence, no matter where you are. If you flip burgers, you have a pulpit. If you’re an executive, you have a pulpit. If you’re in some other field, you have a pulpit.
God is asking, “Who wants to be used by me?”
Will you raise your hand and say, “I do”? God will use you if you will make yourself available to Him.
