About 40 Days of Faith
“Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”—Romans 10:17
The truths found in Scripture sustain and build great faith, no matter what our circumstances may be. Heroes of faith throughout history have shown us that when our eyes are focused on Christ, his gospel gives us peace and unshakable hope. He is the solid rock, our living water, our provider, and so much more.
This reading plan will take you from the Old Testament to the New Testament, recounting moments where God has shown his power and faithfulness to his people. Each day includes a passage, a faith confession to read out loud over yourself, and journaling lines for personal notes and prayer items.
The promises in the Bible are yours to hold on to. God wants to equip you with faith strong enough to overcome any obstacle and defeat any enemy. Allow the Holy Spirit to stretch your expectations of what he will do in these forty days. Let’s build great faith in our great God.
