Faith Is Like Duct Tape. Pt2

Just like duct tape can be used in a variety of situations, so it is with faith. You might be facing a problem with your grades, or maybe you’re facing a problem with your relationships. Just whip out your roll of faith and patch together that bad situation with what the Bible says. Faith can be used at any time and in any situation. Faith in God is always the answer to the variety of difficulties we face. 

What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. Hebrews 11:1 (NLT).

Another comparison with duct and faith is like duct tape, you can rely on its faith. You know that when you need to patch a hole or to hold things together, you can trust the duct tape to do its job. Well, that’s pretty much what faith is. Faith will patch up the holes in your life and hold everything together. Trusting that God is going to go to bat for you. He will provide for you no matter what’s happening. 

So what is faith? Faith is just choosing to believe what God says. Faith is trusting and relying on God. I encourage you to put your trust in God and become a mighty young person of faith. 

Let’s Talk 2 God

God thank You for the gift of faith. Father, when things are hard and difficult, teach me to trust that you will hold me together and patch up my problems in Christ name, Amen.

Faith Is Like Duct Tape. Pt1

Let’s talk about faith and duct tape, they have a lot in common. Duct tape is probably one of the most useful inventions. It now comes in many colours and serves a variety of purposes, from patching up torn clothes, to keeping some car hose pipes sealed. One summer I was working on a car with my uncle, and a screw ripped a hole in my t-shirt. There weren’t any sewing supplies nearby, so I quickly found a roll of duct tape and patched up my t-shirt. Thanks to duct tape, my t-shirt was held together. 

And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who passionately seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (TPT).

Like duct tape holding my t-shirt together, faith holds our lives together. Faith is the basis of our relationship with God. Sin has torn this relationship apart, but we have to believe what the Word says no matter what things look like. Faith keeps you together when you feel you’re falling apart. Our faith keeps us going and assures us we will make it, regardless of how ripped we may feel. 

Let’s Talk 2 God  

God, thank you for the gift of faith that you have promised me. I ask for stronger faith today, so I will be drawn closer to you. Father patch up my torn ripped life today in Jesus name, Amen!
