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!
