VERSE:
So [God] said He would destroy [Israel] – had not Moses, His chosen one, stood in the breach before Him to keep His wrath from destroying them.
— Psalm 106:23

THOUGHT:
America is increasingly immoral, and in dire need of repentance. God was about to wipe out an entire nation if it were not for one man – Moses – who stood in the gap between them and God, and pleaded for the salvation of that nation. Jesus is considered a prophet like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15) because He stood in the gap between sinners and God, and provided a way of escape from God’s wrath. We likewise, as Christ’s manifest body on Earth, are called to such a ministry of intersession for our nation.

APPLICATION:
Let your heart be aligned with God’s heart when viewing the moral decay of society. Give yourself to prayer and stand in the gap between a Holy God and a sinful nation.

PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your patient endurance when I was in my sins. I thank you for letting your wrath linger, giving me grace upon grace so that I would escape your wrath. I pray that your loving-kindness in holding back your wrath against this world and our nation would be seen in our culture so that they would come to repentance. I pray that your people would stand up and fearlessly proclaim your gospel until the full number of Gentiles would be brought into your kingdom. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
