Just 40 Days


Let's think back to Easter

21 days ago

then

19 days before that

when we began our fast for

40 Days~

fasting from

the weights that weigh us down.

There is no magic in the number

but boy oh boy

there is transformation in

40 Days

when you lose

40 Pounds

because you gain so much more...

more of

Him.

40 Days...

Noah experienced them

And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. Genesis 7:12

Moses experienced them

Moses entered the cloud and went up on the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights. Exodus 24:18

And He lived through them again

Then once again I fell prostrate before the Lord for forty days and forty nights; I ate no bread and drank no water, because of all the sin you had committed, doing what was evil in the Lord’s sight and so arousing His anger. Deuteronomy 9:18, 25

Even Jesus experienced the

40 Days

After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. Matthew 4:2

And again

when Jesus walked for 40 Days after He rose from the dead

He appeared to them over a period of forty days

and spoke about the kingdom of God. Acts 1:3

40 Days

is possible...

but when

40 Days

doesn't promote change

40 years

are needed,

like the Israelites

who wandered through them...

Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, WHY?

to humble

and test you in order to know what was in your heart,

whether or not you would keep his commands.

He

humbled

you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna,

which neither you nor your ancestors had known,

WHY?

to teach you that

man does not live on bread alone

but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:1-3

WHY?

To humble me

To humble you

40 Days

to teach me

to teach you

that man does not live on bread alone

but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:1-3

Are you ready to take another

40 Days..

of making

The Great Exchange~

by Putting off

by Putting on

and then

Putting into practice

His Word.

40 Life changing Days...

Beginning

May 9~

40 Days

until

June 18~

Father's Day~

how appropriate..

A day of remembrance and thanksgiving

not only to our earthly father's

but to

Our Father

Our Creator

Who

you will

grow closer to

over the next

40 Days

as we

Walk with the

One

Who walked for

40 more Days

even after He rose from the dead.

Jesus~

never finished with us

because

He is so much more.

So

Let's

get ready to put on-

whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—

And then

put it into practice.

And the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:8-9
