And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
Israel was far from God. The leaders had abused their power. The people turned their backs on God. God looked for someone who would stand up for him and found no one.
Today God is looking for people who will stand in the breach. He is looking for parents more concerned about their daughter’s walk with God than her circle of popular friends. He is looking for parents more concerned about their son’s heart than his batting average. He is looking for leaders unwilling to compromise regardless of the pressure. He is looking for men and women to stand strong in the face of culture. He is looking for people who will demonstrate to their families and friends what it looks like to follow hard after God.
So, here’s the question. God is looking for that person. Will he find you?
Talking to God
Father, here I am. Help me stand in the breach. Give me strong spiritual hands to build strong spiritual walls. Give me strong feet to stand in the gap. Let me be the person you find to stand strong. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
