Abide In Him

Psalm 85:6-9 NKJV
Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You? [7] Show us Your mercy, LORD, And grant us Your salvation. [8] I will hear what God the LORD will speak, For He will speak peace To His people and to His saints; But let them not turn back to folly. [9] Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.

I wonder what would it look like to see the value of one person who is fully committed to God ?

Ezekiel 22:30: “I looked for a man 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 none.”

Here is the all-knowing, all-seeing God searching the landscape for a person He could trust to intercede and plead for the people, and He searched in vain. Something of the intensity of His search is revealed in,

2 Chronicles 16:9: “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

As a young man, D. L. Moody once heard a preacher say, “The world has yet to see what God can do with a man who is fully yielded to Him.” So Moody resolved in his heart, “By the grace of God, I will be that man.” In spite of all of Moody’s educational and physical limitations, God used him to bring thousands into the kingdom.

God is still looking for that man or woman with a heart to do His will and with a commitment to His work. Will you tell Him today that you’re available?
