The 40 Day Soul Fast - Week 1
By Dr. Cindy Trimm on February 14 2013
The 40 Day Soul Fast Starts Today!
Welcome to the first day of the 40 Day Soul Fast! I will be journeying with you over the next eight weeks as we explore the life of the soul, the beauty of inner healing, and how to live more authentically from here on out.
This week's theme is about enlarging your capacity. During this first week, we will be talking about capacity building. This is how we come to understand the significance of the number forty.
Throughout the Bible, we see the number forty being associated with deliverance and Kingdom expansion. It marked significant periods of preparation and transformation in both the Old and New Testaments. From Noah to Jesus, the number forty represented a time of testing, transition, and metamorphoses (read pages 61-70 in The 40 Day Soul Fast book for a more in depth study).
Consecrate the next forty days to clearing your mind, liberating your soul, and freeing your spirit by seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. By cleansing your life from the inside out, you will see all things become new in every area of your life.
Join me as we prepare our hearts for a fuller manifestation of God's glory to be revealed in our lives.
Be sure to order a copy of both the book and journal--they will be invaluable tools for you over the next 8 weeks. Or better yet, start a small group using the DVD curriculum--it comes complete with a leader's guide and participant's guides that include practical cleansing guidelines, a special benediction, and an activation prayer you can declare over your soul every day of the fast.
Make soul healing the focus of your Lenten practice and join me for the best 40 days of your life!
Psalm 139:23 MSG: Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me; Cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I'm about; See for yourself whether I've done anything wrong--then guide me on the road to eternal life.
The 40 Day Soul Fast has been heralded as a life-transforming journey of inner healing by participants around the world.
