1 Samuel 7:5–Then Samuel said, “Assemble all Israel at Mizpah, and I will intercede with the Lord for you.”
The people had sinned and Samuel was willing to stand in the gap between the sinful people and a holy God. Samuel called the people to come and assemble together so that he could pray for them. Thankfully, we have One who intercedes on our behalf as well. In Hebrews, the author discusses how Jesus Christ came to intercede on our behalf and stand in the gap between our sin and a Holy God. We can come to God through Jesus Christ who stands in the gap and intercedes on our behalf.
Father, I love You and will come before Your presence through the grace of Jesus Christ. Thank You for standing in the gap between my sin and a holy God. I will praise You.
