The transformation from scaredy-cat to warrior is a process of increasing trust in God. Courage is not the absence of fear. It’s a decision to do what must be done even while you’re terrified. If you wait to act until you overcome your dread, you will never do anything meaningful.
This little volume of 20 devotionals won’t eliminate fear from your life, but they will show you how to live like the warrior God created you to be. Even if you must do it scared.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I find I'm surrounded by people like me—people who are afraid to step out of their comfort zone and follow Jesus where he points them. I wrote a novel (Cornered in Shallow Water: One Man's Journey from Crippling Fear to Faith and Freedom) to address this problem via story. I used a number of Bible verses in it to show God's answer to fear. After it was published, I was moved to write "Do It Scared," a devotional based on several of these Bible verses.
I Will Fight for You
Then I said to you, “Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes. (Deuteronomy 1.29-30)
A skinny teenager took a boxing lesson from the legendary prizefighter, John L. Sullivan. After the session, he limped home bruised and sore.
When he came for his second lesson, he said, “Mr. Sullivan, I wanted to learn enough boxing techniques from you to whoop this kid who’s picking on me. But I’ve changed my mind. If it’s okay with you, Mr. Sullivan, I’ll send him down here to take the rest of my lessons for me.”
God will do for you what the kid asked John L. Sullivan to do for him. He will fight for you. He wants you to win your battles against fear itself and the God-things fear would keep from you.
God will fight for you if you face your fear and believe He has the power to do what He’s promised. Trust He will defeat your foes. Know He will keep His promises to you. Be certain enough that you take God-motivated risks rather than sit on the sidelines where it’s “safe.”
