God Glimpses #40 ~ Self-Help is Rot

2015-09-27 17.38.30

This picture and the title may be all you need for this God-Glimpse.

Our very best efforts to repair ourselves turn out like this–a bad idea made worse by lack of experience, resources and patience.

Rot started the problem. A section of the rafter had to go before the fungus spread to the rest of the roof. But it wasn’t enough to remove just a section of the board, the entire rafter should have been replaced with new.

It’s not enough to get rid of sin, bad habits or even weaknesses; they must be replaced, or the roof of our good intentions will soon leak and eventually cave in.

Only The Master Carpenter has the experience, resources and patience to repair the rot of our lives. Only His Word is strong enough to shore up the roof over our heads.

Replace the old rafters of your life with new Living Words from the Father of Life.
