Therefore he said he would destroy them— had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them.
Psalms 106:23 ESV
It is always a good thing to have someone that you can depend on, someone that will be there for you.
Sometimes these people are there, helping you and you don’t even realize it!
How? Through prayer!
When the Israelites left Egypt and traveled to the Promised Land, they did so many stupid things that God wanted to wipe them out!
They weren’t grateful! They worshipped idols. And they complained a whole bunch!
So God was ready to get rid of them and start over! Imagine that!
But Moses prayed for them! He stood in the gap and prayed that God would forgive them.
And God did!
Where would they be without Moses? They probably didn’t even realize all that Moses did for them at the time.
Do you have someone that is standing in the gap for you? You might not realize it!
Are you standing in the gap for someone else? There are people that you know who need it!
Father, thank You for those who have lifted me up in prayer to You. Let me be one that does the same for those in need.
