Bestselling author Rebecca Barlow Jordan encourages readers to embrace a more inti-mate, fruitful relationship with God with 40 days of inspiring devotions. Many Christians don't know what it means to truly experience God's grace. They don't know how to open their hands, their eyes, or their hearts to his affection. In 40 DAYS IN GOD'S BLESSING, Rebecca Barlow Jordan invites readers to walk in the shadows of saints gone before to trace the footprints of God's faithfulness in the lives of other believers. Through these moving stories, readers are brought face-to-face with the God who loves them more than they can imagine. Jordan inspires readers to seek out the God who wants to give them immeasurable grace. In just 40 days, readers will realize the blessings waiting especially for them. Rebecca Barlow Jordan was coauthor of Courage for the Chicken-Hearted (Honor, 1998), a CBA bestseller, and its fol-low-up, Eggstra Courage for the Chicken-Hearted (Honor, 1999). Guideposts also distributed these books, publishing almost 120,000 copies combined. Jordan's work has appeared in Family Circle, Focus on the Family, Home Life, Discipleship Journal, and Marriage Partnership. She has appeared on the At Home Live televi-sion program (Family Net) and on numerous radio sta-tions across the country. 40 DAYS IN GOD'S BLESSING is the follow-up com-panion to 40 Days in God's Presence, which releases in January 2006. Both devotionals explore the benefits of a full relationship with God.

What could be better than partnering with someone who can give us the how-tos of life in this modern age? What if this person had all the remedies to the modern ills of society, and what if this person could be the voice of wisdom we need to silence the maelstrom of noises vying for our attention? Thankfully, we can keep company with our omnipotent God, who is just the person we need to guide us. In 40 Days in His Presence, author Beverly Williams invites all who are genuinely interested in capturing the wisdom of God to spend time with him daily in prayer, thanksgiving, and reflection. In a society full of quick fixes, we can instead find the real solution to lifes everyday challenges in the holy words of our consummate counselor, God. Gods Word, the Bible, can equip you to face and conquer those little foxes with confidence as you go about your day. And although social media and even your peers will tell you that anything goes in this day and age, only the timeless wisdom of God and his direction will give you the peace of mind, joy, and fulfilment that you seek. I am excited to write this for Beverlys first book, a powerful devotional that I know will bless readers and help them grow in maturity and power as they walk with the Lord.

40 Days is a response to my friend, Andres question about, Who is your God? This book will respond to that question by teaching as Jesus did, in key themes. There are four major themes that will lead the readers heart and mind to a meaningful prayer life via The Lords Prayer, understanding the steps to salvation through the Romans Road Route, walking closer to God and calling him friend through fasting and prayer, and by reading the Biblical prayers of great prophets and kings who modeled how to communicate to God through their prayers and lifestyle. In the words of my first professor, Dr. Gordon Borror, Professor of Worship at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Life for a believer in Christ is Worship/Service-the glory of God is always the issue and prayer is an essential part of worship, as is time in the Word and our continuing Song! Why 40 days? It takes that long to establish a spiritual discipline. Noah was 600 years old when he had to endure 40 days and nights of rain to bring about a positive change, and then we got the rainbow (GE 7,8,9.1-17). Moses was on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights, neither eating nor drinking, but writing down the words of God and in return received Gods radiance on his face and the 10 Commandments (EX 34.27-29). Goliath, a giant Philistine, shouted threats of death against the army of Israel for 40 days and nights, then David, a young Israelian shepherd boy, killed him with a stone and a sling-shot. David was promoted to live in the kings palace and fight in his army ( I SA 17.8-58). Jesus was led into the desert by the Holy Spirit for 40 days to be tested and tempted by the devil, neither eating nor drinking, and then he was hungry (LK 4.1-13). Jesus was resurrected and returned for 40 days and spoke about the kingdom of God to his disciples. Jesus ascended to heaven and baptized his disciples and church with the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1.1-5). After 40 days of seeking Gods face you will come to know the joy of being in his presence.

Many Christians today struggle with having a consistent or life-giving quiet time. They are looking for a form of prayer that doesn’t make them feel like they’re begging God or being judged by him. The Soul at Rest is a quiet time companion that introduces “inward disciplines” from throughout Christian history to those who hunger for greater intimacy with God. The Soul at Rest is a 40-day guided experience of prayer that puts readers in the presence of God and allows them to enter and enjoy his rest. It guides readers into a rhythm of quiet, contemplative prayer, easing them into God’s presence and demonstrating how prayer is not so much a duty as it is a gift. By the time someone finishes The Soul at Rest, they’ll not only understand prayer better; they’ll be engaging in it as a regular rhythm of life.

Dovetailing with Philip Yancey’s book Reaching for the Invisible God, the twelve sessions are your opportunity to journey toward insights that affirm and dignify your most pressing questions--even the ones you may have found it hard to ask.

Yancey shifts your focus from questions to the One who offers himself in answer: the God who invites you to reach for him--and find.Includes:* Bible readings * Discussion questions* Personal reflections and applications* Tips for group leaders* Summary excerpts from Reaching for the Invisible God
