Fill the Gap

See that gap? That’s meant for you. 

For have I not given you eyes to see and ears to hear? I am calling you to fill the gap!

Don’t wait for others to fill the gap. Don’t look around for someone else to speak to the new person or drop groceries off to the person whose paycheck never quite covers the month. Feed the hungry, clothe the young person going for a job interview, throw a birthday party for the foreigner in your midst. 

Because you are called to be a Goshen – and a Goshen steps into need. 

So don’t mind the gap – fill it. 


Father God, I thank-you that you have given me eyes to see and ears to hear. I want to be a resource – to stand next to my brothers and sisters, holding up their arms in battle. May I not ignore the gaps but embrace a solutions-focused attitude. Will you help me to see the gaps and show me how they can be filled.

James 2:18 (NIV) 

But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 

Galatians 5:13 (NIV)

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
