This Devotional For Men Will Give You Testicular Fortitude

Written by Doug Giles on October 12, 2022

Most of the current and popular Christian devotionals that I’ve read, even “for men”, have left me more disappointed than my buddy who just found out that his Instagram crush was a guy dressed like a girl.

A devotional for dudes must have grist for the warriors’ mill within its pages, from soup to nuts. It must fuel their warrior and wildman spirit that’s been starved to death in the oh-so-sassy evangelical world of squishiness (Amos 8:11).

And that, my brothers, is what I’ve attempted to do with this fresh tome, The Wildman Devotional: A 50-Day Devotional For Men.

My goal herein is twofold: I’m here to put brains (Rom 12:1-2) and balls (Prov 28:1) on believers. It’s my calling. It’s my gifting. It’s what I do 24/7/365. Yep, it’s my full-time job.

If the Church is going to reach the lost, disciple the converted, leaven culture, and rebuke the political putrid swamp rats inside the Beltway and beyond then we’re going to need men with cojones who’ve shored up their cranium with the Christian worldview. Can you dig it? I knew you could.

Now, I’m sure some Lysol-disinfected Christian is pearl-clutching over my usage of the word Wildman because they’ve gotten used to what Satan has sold Christendom namely, a Mild-man. Well, allow me, my fragile friend, to explain what I mean by a biblical Wildman because I’m not cheerleading for some out-of-control cat who’s crazier than Kamala Harris’s margin doodles. Oh, no senorita. Here’s my definition of a Wildman …

1. A Wildman is a threat to any group, party, person, or thing that attempts to keep him in a state of puerile domesticity, a veritable stooge of the machine.

2. A Wildman is a person who is free from politically correct pressure to conform to what “they, them, and the other guy” tell them to conform to or else they’ll be canceled.

3. A Wildman is unowned, unmanipulated, unbowed, unbeholden, undomesticated, unapologetic, and unashamed of who they are in God and Christ.

Y’know … just like Abraham, Moses, David, Joshua, Samson, Amos, Elijah, Nehemiah, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul, and Jesus?

Jesus wasn’t manageable. He didn’t give two flips about what men thought. He wasn’t spooked by Satan’s threats. He didn’t kiss religious or political butt. Jesus was bold, free, and wild before the Father in the epic righteous sense of the word, and you and I should take our cue from the 30-year-old Rebel from Galilee and not castrated Christendom. Can I get a witness?

To feed and fuel the Wildman spirit within you my brothers I’ve divided up the diet herein to cover three spiritual food groups: 1. The Wealth. 2. The Walk. And 3. The Warfare of the Christian.

The Wealth entries showcase to the Christian how spiritually rich we are in Christ (Eph 1:1-23).

The Walk aspects herein show the believer how following Him will cause us to walk against the grain of this fetid milieu (Eph 4:1-32)

The Warfare additions prep the Christ enthusiast with weapons, armor, and attitude to wax the powers of darkness (Eph 6:10-20)

As you’ll soon see, each of my devotional delicacies are short, punchy and to the point. They are not long treatises, but quick adrenaline jolts to deliver Holy Ghost food to the hungry Wildman. If you meditate throughout the day on what each entry delivered, I’m convinced you will morph into a lethal weapon that the powers of darkness will loathe to mess with.

I hope you enjoy The Wildman Devotional: A 50-Day Devotional For Men. If it delivered the goods to your soul, consider buying five extra copies for your buddies and have them digest this devotional as well. We need to create an army of Wildmen.
