Everyone finds himself or herself in a wilderness at some point: financial wildernesses, emotional wildernesses, relational wildernesses, health wildernesses, reputation wildernesses, failure wildernesses, or unemployment wildernesses, and the list goes on and on. In those moments, we are utterly dependent on God for well-timed help. If he doesn't come through, we're finished. In personal stories and applications of biblical lessons, Manna reveals how God specializes in making a way where there is no way.
Discover God’s remedy for fear. Fear has become a way of life. We fear for our finances, for an increasingly immoral culture, and for a nation that continues to shift away from godly principles. So it’s no wonder that in a world so uncertain, fear is the only constant. But there is a truth that offers profound courage to every believer who finds it: Even when things look out of control, they’re actually under control. God’s control. The life of the prophet Daniel holds a powerful profile in courage.
The Psalms are like a marked trail through life, showing that others have walked ahead and faced many of the challenges, temptations, heartaches, and perplexities that men will encounter on their journeys. Farrar shows that when a man begins to understand that the strong and caring hand of God is sovereign over everything in his life - including his trials and heartaches - his confidence, hope, and joy will increase dramatically in the God who created him and desires to use him.
"Fabulous! Definitely five stars!"
There is a process by which God builds a bold man, and it is seen in the life of Joseph. In this process, God will work providentially, in every detail of the man's life. He will work strangely, therefore much of what God is doing won't make sense. And he will work slowly, frustrating the man who is in a hurry to succeed immediately.
"How is God shaping you?"
There is a kind of man God uses. He stands tall in the face of giants. He strives to honor God through his life. He is trusting when it seems all hope is lost. And when life is uncertain, he is certain of God's unfailing provision. Battle Ready is for any man who longs to serve God. Inside you'll explore the lives of men who made an impact in their world, including Joshua, who led the Israelites into the Promised Land, and Caleb, who trusted God and not himself for victory in battle.
"Keep the faith"
Men's conference speaker and best-selling author Steve Farrar takes listeners through the psalms to see how David endured crushing pressure and fiery trials and emerged a great man, shaped by the hand of God. Men facing difficult challenges in life will relate to chapters on depression, betrayal, when your family is falling apart, living with a bad decision, living with your critics, and when your career is interrupted. Farrar encouragingly illustrates how David depended on God to overcome the same sins and trials - still remaining "a man after God's own heart".
A leader must stand tall enough for his followers to find him. "As the God-appointed captain of his family," says Steve Farrar, "a man faces the challenge of spying out the social territory, marking danger zones, and taking stands to protect those in his charge." It's an active leadership role - and Farrar's been training men to succeed in it for over ten years.
