Let the scripture speak. stand in the gap
Isa 61:1-4 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion–to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified. They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
Isa 42:7 to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.
Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber.
Isa 42:19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I send? who is blind as he that is at peace with me, and blind as Jehovah’s servant?
Isa 42:18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
Jg 6:12 And the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor.”
Jer 1:12 Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.”
(All emphasis is mine)
When God looks from above, what does he see? He sees people who are struggling. Just to pick the above examples, he sees people who are: blind, deaf, afflicted with diseases, broken hearted, poor, imprisoned, in darkness, bound, mourning, in ashes, faint, devasted for many generations, dumb, without knowledge among many others that may not be in the above scriptures.
Sad enough, this is the same picture that He sees in many Christians. This is primarily why Jesus came, He saw the above and came to set them free.
Whose duty is it to set the above free? One answer: Christians.
What is the state of His servants, the Christians? They are blind, deaf, without knowledge, have given up, belittlers of themselves, too lazy to anything hence end up sleeping. This is the picture too with many of His watchmen. Too sad, isn’t it? Don’t look at the Christian watchmen you see around, please look at yourself. How free are you, how clear is your sight?
What does God see in us? What He saw in Gideon and in Jeremiah. A mighty man, a mighty warrior. Sadly many have ended up becoming mighty worriers!
What does He expect of us? He wants us to partner with Him to build, raise, restore, repair and bring back to order what the enemy has destroy or tampered with.
We need to see situations the way Jesus sees them, and we ought to see ourselves the way He sees us. We should see our friends, children, family members, neighbours, teachers and leaders through His eyes.
What holds us back? Several things including fear, doubt, laziness, the cares of the world, a don’t care attitude, too busy and crowded days, ignorance etc
This pains Christ. He is looking for a people to arise and through prayer confront the issue. We need to fix the issues first spiritually before we do it physically. God still cries out as it was in the time of Ezekiel:
Eze 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should build up the wall, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none.(ASV)
Gideon never knew that he had all that was needed to confront the giants of his day, he had to get divine assurance. What more divine assurance do you need than this-

Are you standing in the gap?

Are you standing in the gap?

God is looking for a willing watchman, not a strong watchman. He qualifies the called, he does not call the qualified! Are you ready to confront the works of darkness you see around yourself and see God turning them round? Jesus’ heart bleeds to get someone who will stand up to be counted for the task, no matter his status or qualification.
Arise, God is banking greatly on you, will you heed the call?
