“Faith is like electricity. You can’t see it, but you can see the light.”
LORD, Give me faith!!! Have you ever prayed that prayer? Many have and still pray it often in desperation. My greatest desire and passion is to see people develop and become strong in faith. Many Christians speak of their lack of faith, but lack of faith is really not the problem. Human reasoning would have us complicate it, but the real reason for a lack of faith is a lack of knowledge. The Bible says; “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).
Faith is really not that complicated. It’s rather simple. Faith accompanies knowledge. If you are going to be strong in faith, you must be strong in the knowledge of God’s Word. The Bible reveals to us how to get Bible faith. It says; “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).”
So the faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
WHY 40 DAYS OF FAITH TRAINING?
This simple training is the solution for making modern day disciples or students of the Word of God. Faith is the key to developing your full potential and living a positive, healthy, successful life. God wants His people to be strong in faith because He is a good God. Developing your faith life is the most important thing you will ever do because faith receives God’s goodness. God is a faith God and He wants His people to be “faith” people because faith is the key to winning in life. The Bible says: “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6).
TEACHING IS NOT TRAINING
You are about to start a journey in training that will change your life for eternity! This is 40 DAYS OF FAITH training. Training is not just education. Training engages you to apply what you have learned. Education is generally measured by tenure: you spent a day in the seminar or four years in college. Training, on the other hand, is measured by what you can do when you've completed it. Training results in changed behavior by application of the precepts or information you have received. Training is not just education.
Think of it this way. If your sixteen year-old daughter told you that she was going to take a sex education course at high school, you might be pleased. What if she announced she was going to take part in some sextraining at school? Would that elicit the same response? Training is doing. Training improves performance.
"Researchers report that people remember 90 percent of what they do,75 percent of what they say, and 10 percent of what they hear.”
Churches in general do not train people, if anything, they teach, they educate. Researchers report that people remember 90 percent of what they do, 75 percent of what they say, and 10 percent of what they hear. People who are trained are active. They are trained by doing. So each day for the next forty days you will receive information and make consistent application of the spiritual information you have received. It is just that simple. Training will change your life.
THE 40-DAY FACTOR!
It takes time to develop habits. So in this book, I want to present to you a practical way to develop your faith. Faith is like a muscle, and we know that muscles are developed over time. You don’t go to the gym just one time and come out with strong, lean muscles. Physical development takes time and so does spiritual development. Through practice and application, you can and will improve and strengthen your faith life.
God is a God of numbers! Biblical principles are often written by His Divine code of numbers. He even wrote a Book called Numbers. The number “forty” (40) is avery significant number in the Bible. The Bible says that in the mouth of two or three witnesses is every word established, so I will share with you three witnesses regarding the number forty. There are many more, but three are sufficient for laying a foundation.
God caused it to rain forty days and forty nights in the flood of Noah (Genesis 7:4).
Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights receiving the Ten Commandments from the Lord (Exodus 34:38).
Jesus fasted for forty days and forty nights while being tempted of the devil (Matthew 4:1-2).
You will never be the same after 40 DAYS OF APPLICATION and AFFIRMATION of the WORD and PRAYER.

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
