CWA Review: Spiritually Stronger in 40 Days by:Serge Roux-Levrat


About the Book:
"Spiritually stronger in 40 days!" contains a 40-day plan that is so powerful, yet so simple, that everybody can go through it. Big achievements are always accomplished little by little. The world is changed one life at a time.
Authors often complete their books by writing a couple of pages each day. People sustainably lose weight by eating every day a little less calories and doing a little bit more exercise. Big projects are successfully implemented by tackling one smaller milestone at a time. The same is true when it comes to living in abundance.
The forty-day plan will help readers make real progress towards that goal. Furthermore, thanks to the Holy Spirit who will accompany them during this crucial period, convict them at times, strengthen them and give them key revelations, they will be supernaturally changed in key areas by the end of the 40-day plan period. This will increase their faith tremendously and enable them to go through other growth plans that God inevitably has in mind for them.



About the Author: 
"By many world criteria, Serge Roux-Levrat had a very successful start in life. He was born in Bourgoin-Jallieu, France, to a middle-class family, where he received love and sound principles. He had a privileged education, including an Actuarial Degree from the “Institut de Science Financière et d’Assurances” of the University of Lyons, and an MBA from the University of Edinburgh Business School. He also completed the General Manager Program of the Harvard Business School. In 1995, he married his wife, Barbara, and they procreated two children.
Throughout his career, he was able to work for some of the world's most admired companies, and at the age of 37 he realized a life-long ambition: to become CEO of a publicly quoted company. In this capacity, he had the privilege of joining the world elite at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in 2001.
By all appearances, his life was great. Internally, however, he was restless and unhappy, and was searching for the true meaning of life. He sought success by climbing the corporate ladder, but slowly realized that success did not equal joy or peace or purpose; and he felt guilty not to be happy when life had dealt him such a good hand of cards compared to millions of other people. 
In 2001, all this was to change: in one day his world was turned upside down when he lost his coveted job as CEO. What followed was a seven-year period of soul-searching in what he calls "God's detoxification clinic." Here, he found Jesus - not a religion, not a set of rules to follow, not an ideology, not a philosophy, but a real person, alive, loving, and all-powerful. Here, he learned to put his trust and sense of security only in God - not in money, not in social standing, and not in professional success. Here, the unconditional, unfaltering love of God changed his whole life, mindset, and priorities.
As a result, he has responded to God’s calling to serve as Ambassador of Jesus Christ and to work, together with the body of Christ, towards a Christian revival in Europe. He operates through SRL Ministries."

My Review:
 Who doesn't want to grow in their Christian walk and get closer to the one God that we all see in so many different lights? To some He is our Savior. To others He is our Father. The list of names and how we see Him could go on and on. To me being a woman in her late 30's that has already lost both of my parents, he is my everything but mainly my Daddy. I love Him and can't wait for that final lap to get to meet Him face to face.

 But until that day I will have to settle for getting to know Him better.  And what better way than to change up my Bible reading and devotional time with my Father. Serge Roux-Levrat has given us a key into getting our spirit up to par in his book Spiritually Stronger in 40 Days. Yes, you read that right 40 days. We all have the time that it takes to do this devotional that will help us in our daily walk with the Lord.

 How are we to ever know what God has planned for us if we don't invest our faith in Him? Serge reminds us that God has already got everything sorted out for us. We just need to have faith and wait upon Him and it will all work out in due time. This Bible study has been written in such a way so that you can have thoughts to ponder on. Throughout the book the author gives you homework at the end of each day. These are things for you to do with that days teachings to help you grow even further.
