In the Bible, we find numerous instances where often when God wanted to prepare someone for a truly great destiny, He used a 40-day period to transform their life. In some cases, He stopped them in their tracks and completely altered the path of their life. In other cases, He allowed them to continue on their path, but with new focus and vision. God used outer circumstances and He used inner conditions. He used rain and He used a wilderness. However, He always used 40 days, and always, those involved were never the same again.
Noah, Moses and Elijah are a few biblical characters that God used 40 days to change their lives. Perhaps the most memorable is the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness overcoming the temptation of Satan. After that time of temptation, Jesus entered His public ministry. He healed the sick. He fed the thousands. He raised the dead. He changed the world.
