#340 – Stand in the Gap
When you see a weakness in another, this is a divine revelation. Though the knowledge be personally frustrating and a costly betrayal, it is a part of the process. God is giving you special insight to intercede in their behalf.
The insight into your brothers weakness is a gift to demonstrate love and long-suffering. Should you exploit him, then it is your character on display. His infirmity, in confidence will expose your infirmities in public.
A gift makes room for you and a with a gift comes responsibility. Your gift has an assignment and will always reflect the giver. Discernment is a gift, intuition is precious prophetic intel. How are you handling the gift of spiritual perception?
I have entrusted you with information about your brother, to help and not hurt, nor hinder. Your insight is strategic and with strategy, serve your brother. Stand in the gap until he is made whole. Intercede in the heavenly realms covering him in with MY grace and mercy.
I Peter 4:8-11
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.
