GOD IS WITH YOU. YOUR STORY IS NOT OVER. YOU ARE NOT DEFEATED.
In the Bible, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. But day 41 came, and the rain stopped. The people of Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Then year 41 came, and a new generation entered the Promised Land. For 40 days, Goliath bullied Israel and dared anyone to fight him. Day 41 came, and David slew the giant.
Do you see the theme? Don’t quit. Don’t give up. God will come through for you.
Perhaps you’re stuck in a downpour or lost in one of life’s deserts. Maybe you’re facing someone or something that could take you down. No matter where you are on your journey, your 41 will come- it’s on its way.
A bold declaration of faith, 41 Will Come is a shot of encouragement and hope for everyone in the midst of life’s battles.
This book is fabulous!!! I took so many notes while reading, he has so much to say and it is worth remembering. Not only does he reference the bible throughout the book, but he also brings in the voices of MC Hammer, Verizon Wireless, Taylor Swift, his friends and family and so many more. He keeps you hopping throughout the whole book. You never know where he will lead you next, but you definitely want to hang on for the ride. It has a flow to it that makes you want more!
Fight your battles and slay that “giant” he says, trust in God irregardless of what is happening he says. Sometimes this is harder said than done, and honestly I believe the author understands that. He lays out a plan for our battle and the defeat of our “giant”. He explains to us that we have to identify the giant, whether it’s a large or small one doesn’t matter, but we have to know what it is we are fighting against. We have to understand the game plan, we have to be strategic, and we have to win. I have several “giants” that need to be slain, after reading this book, I feel like I finally can start to plan my first moves against my “giants”.
This book made me cry from the very beginning, they were tears of joy and understanding. They were tears of let’s do this and fight those battles. He is an amazing author and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The personal accounts from himself and his friends/loved ones were uplifting and inspirational. It gave a personal feeling to the book. I literally felt like I had been setting down for coffee with this man. It was amazing and I will definitely be keeping it around for future readings.
