Sometimes in life you must realize, that the answers you seek are not in people, places, or things. If at forty, you don’t know where you are, or where you are going then something is drastically wrong. What excites me about young people, especially those who are Christians, who are serving the Lord wholeheartedly, is that when they get to the age of forty, they would have accumulated supernatural faith to move any mountain, or obstacles in their lives. It will be easier for them to cast down doubts, fears, and imaginations that is contrary to God’s word.
There is something special about the number forty. The Israelites wandered around the wilderness, for forty years; Elijah, traveled for forty days and forty nights unto Horeb, the mountain of God. And Jesus, our Savior, was led into the wilderness, to be tested for forty days, and nights. And at the end of the forty days or years people get their prayers answered, and God gets the glory, all this is found in Exodus 14; 1 Kings 19:4; Luke 4 :1-13.
At forty years of age and up, you should not be gullible, oblivious, or be persuaded by anything or everything that comes your way, you should already know what you want, get what you want, or close to what you want. Now, if at forty, you don’t have a clue as to where to go, or what to do, I can introduce you to someone, who knows the way you should go, the truth about yourself, and your life, and the best thing is, He can give you eternal life, solve all your problems, feed you and clothe you. He has all the answers to your questions. His name is Jesus, God’s only begotten Son.
Jesus after the forty days and nights, came out more powerful, with more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding than ever. But the best part is He had more Word in Him. He exercised His God given rights to use the Word. When the devil came calling, Jesus told Him that it was written. And when the devil tried to use the scripture against Him, He let him know what His heavenly Father says, and means (Luke 4:1-13). Let’s submit to God, and use His Word, like Jesus did, to resist the devil so he will flee from us also (James 4:7).

I thank God for using me to share this message with you. I pray that you will allow Him to lead and guide you on the right path. To Him be the glory, praise, honor in Jesus Name, Amen.
