Everyone can recall as a young child having the courage to head out the door—whether it was to your first day of school, your first little league game, or your first night away from home. Then life takes over and you lose your bravado, giving in to the fears of the world around you.
In True Courage: Emboldened by God in a Disheartening World, best-selling author and Bible teacher Steve Farrar aids readers in discovering a God who provides incredible courage to us in the midst of uncertainty, even through treacherous, evil days, and the courage to face lions in their den—or an unexpected job loss, the diagnosis of a sick child, or the return of a debilitating cancer.
Farrar takes a look at the courageous life of the prophet Daniel and shares God’s process for shaping and molding everyday guys into men He can use. Daniel was a man who was used mightily by God, but he wasn’t born bold. He was shaped and molded by a process in which God worked providentially, strangely, and slowly to equip Daniel for his calling.
In every crisis that Daniel faced, he displayed strength and took action—and it was all due to the fact that he knew God. There is a wrong kind of action that is ultimately fruitless, but there is a right kind of action that steadies and quiets the heart and gives great hope for the future. True Courage studies the first six chapters of the book of Daniel where Daniel displayed true courage by:
• Fearing God more than man
• Trusting God with his future
• Realizing God’s governance over all events
Daniel defied a king and offered a miraculous testimony to the faithfulness of God. Men of God must be built through a divine process. This new release in the Bold Men of God series will encourage men to embrace and pursue the refining hand of God. Through Daniels’s story, Farrar reminds readers that true courage can be ours daily and it comes from the one true Sovereign God.
