Are you feeling stagnant? Do you want to make a great change in your life? Make a commitment to meditate on Godís word everyday for forty days. You may choose to read a portion of the Bible every day or just one verse. Below, you will find 40 promises for the Christian believer. They are a good place to start. Every day for 40 days, read one promise, look up the verse, write it down and refer to it throughout the day and one last time before you go to bed for the night. How does each promise affect you? How does it apply to your life?
