Our country is going crazy, right?
It’s frustrating. It makes us angry,
So – what am I doing about it? What are you doing about it?
Are we busy just talking about it and shaking our heads? Are we spouting off negativity to everyone around us and filling Facebook with our rants?
Or are we doing something positive to help turn the trend one small step at a time?
When Israel was going down the tubes thousands of years ago, God told Ezekiel, “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.” Ezekiel 22:30.
God was looking for someone – anyone – who would build a wall against the injustice that was happening. A wall that would help keep out the lies and violence. God was looking for someone to stand in the gap before him on behalf of the Israelite people. “But I found no one.”
Is this same thing happening today? Is it all just talk and emotion?
Or are you and I figuring out how to do our part in standing in the gap for our country before God?
We can stand in the gap by daily praying to God for our country.
We can stand in the gap by putting our feet and hearts into action while working together with God to help turn our country back into the land which was founded with “In God We Trust”. One step at a time. Each of us can create a small ripple that can grow into a wave when we all get involved.
My family and friends have created the David Glasser Foundation in honor of my son, a Phoenix Police Officer, who was killed in the line of duty May 18, 2016. It has been evident right from the beginning that God’s hand is on this foundation. The mission of the foundation is to create and sponsor opportunities for kids and their families to have positive interactions with police officers. We believe if the young man who killed my son had had positive interactions with a police officer, he may have made a different decision on that day. We are passionate about creating a ripple as we continue the legacy of love that my son started.
Not everyone can start a foundation but each one of us can be part of a ripple. God has a purpose for all of us – if we’ll stand in the gap.
I’m here, standing in the gap, Abba Father.
