“The number 40 holds particular significance in the Bible and refers to a precise number, not just a long period of time. There are at least ten instances in the Old Testament and New Testament where 40 occurs, either in years or days, e.g. it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, Moses was on the mountain 40 days and 40 nights, the Israelites wandered 40 years, Jesus fasted in the wilderness for 40 days and was seen on the earth for 40 days after His crucifixion.
A 40-something time period, whether days, months, or years is ALWAYS a period of testing, trial, probation, or chastisement (but not judgment) and ends with a period of restoration, revival or renewal"

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.

The Daily Proclamation sums up The 40 Day Miracle.
40 is the Biblical number of major change and preparation for destiny.

● To prepare for the new world it rained for 40 days and 40 nights
● After the rain stopped, Noah waited 40 days to open the Ark window
● Embalming required 40 days
● Moses stayed on the mountain 40 days (TWICE);
his face shone afterwards
● The spies spent 40 days searching out the Promised Land
● Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness before the Promised Land
● Goliath challenged for 40 days before being killed by David
● Elijah strengthened by one angelic meal went 40 days to Mt. Horeb
● Jonah warned Nineveh they had 40 days till God overthrew the city
● Jesus fasted and was tempted 40 days in the wilderness
● Jesus was seen in the earth 40 days after His crucifixion

Often when God wanted to prepare someone for a truly great destiny, He took 40 days and sent them through an experience somewhat unpleasant to the flesh.
