What if you could take a certain number of hours, days, months or years - a number infused with significance beyond your current awareness - and have them hold the potential for lasting life-change? In the Bible, there is such a number: 40.
The great flood involving Noah lasted 40 days. Moses spent 40 years in Egypt, 40 years in the Sinai desert, and then 40 years leading the people of Israel. He also spent 40 days on Mt. Sinai when he received the Ten Commandments. The prophet Elijah fasted for 40 days. Jesus spent 40 days fasting and praying in the wilderness facing temptation and preparing for His public ministry. And then, Jesus walked on earth for precisely 40 days following His resurrection before returning to heaven.
What is up with 40? More than you might possibly imagine. This mini-book titled "40: God's Number for Life-Change" was written by James Emery White based on the series he delivered at Mecklenburg Community Church. It will guide you through the significance of doing a personal 40 - taking the time to start doing something or to stop doing something. And it could make all the difference for you in your life.
