Before we begin anything, we need to know what we are getting into. When any of us begin a project we count the cost and estimate whether or not we can afford to complete it. Jesus gives us the example of building a tower. If a man was to not count the cost and go ahead and start building and have to stop, he would be ridiculed. Likewise, the first step is understanding the program. Don’t skip steps; take the time to understand fully what you are doing.
The 40 Day Miracle involves abstaining from or counteracting the 7 deadly sins for a period of 40 days. These 7 sins have long been recognized by the church as the 7 basic human behaviors and emotions that cause most of our destruction and spiritual downfall.
We all deal with the 7 deadly sins, but rarely is there an organized program to specifically give us the power to conquer them and take our lives to a new level. If we examine our lives closely, we will see that virtually all of our misery and unhappiness results from one or more of these 7 deadly sins.
When you can conquer something for 40 days, you will have the power and the knowledge to conquer it forever.
