Those who become part of the solution and not part of the problem, Part 1.

EZE 22:30 “And I searched for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”

1KI 2:2 “I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and show yourself a man.”

JOB 38:3 “Now gird up your loins like a man,”

2SA 10:12 “Be strong and let us show ourselves courageous for the sake of our people and for the cities of our God.”

God used one woman when He used Rahab who stood in the GAP; she was a woman for the crisis.

Deborah the patriotic woman, JUD 4:4.

One woman has an entire epistle written to her, and she is called the chosen lady, 2JO 1:1.

All believers who stand in the GAP have prepared for the abnormal times during the normal times.

MAR 4:17 “and they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away.”

A believer who is prepared for the adversities which come because of doctrine thinks like Peter, JOH 6:68.

ROM 8:17 “If indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.”

The believer who becomes a part of the solution and not the problem has the ability to recognize a disaster situation immediately.

When a major problem arises they can always do the right thing because they are always thinking and concentrating on doctrine.

It’s one thing to let sinful things distract you, but it’s more respectable to let legitimate things distract you.

“What is difficulty? Only a word indicating the degree of effort required to accomplish something! A mere notice of the necessity for exertion; a scarecrow to children and fools and a stimulus to real men.”

Paul can request him to help, but he orders the ladies to stop fighting and to have the same viewpoint, or to think objectively by means of the Lord.

Personality conflict hinders spiritual growth in any stage and can especially cause a division in the local assembly when those who are having the conflict are in positions of authority
