God reveals over people because he finds none of them to show compassion for the wandering or lost because of sins.

Praise GOD before Christ came nobody could stand in the gap, but after the death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST, the barrier was broken by HIS blood, now as many as will make themselves available to be GOD 'S mouth or legs or hands HE will use to deliver others

It beats my imagination how with so many preachers and ministers,the burden for souls in the heart of God have not yet been lifted.why are there no men who would stand in the gap when there are men here and there?it is because though men are present every where,they are not available for God to use them.

God is looking for a man who would avail his herself.No matters the person low level of education,background,weaknesses.What matter is the person availability.So let 's avail ourselves,so that we could b use by him.

Before this verse was Gods reaction towards Israel's leaders,who lack an iota of truth in whatever they did or said. Consequently, God ws looking for that man,that leader like Moses, who will rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land.

GOD looked for a man among them. Likely through HIS eyes into eternity and found none. Jesus the SON of God and Man was the only one able to stand in the gap before GOD. This a profound verse.
