“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” Deuteronomy 31:6, NIV.
Just as Joshua was called to lead, we are called to lead. God has placed a portion of His flock under our care and calls us to disciple them and lead them to His Kingdom. Jesus is our guide, our forever help and comfort. Just as He called Joshua to be strong and courageous; you are being called to be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid! Do not fear this world, do not fear your circumstances! Have faith and trust Him. Your God is with you! Just as He was with Moses and Joshua, He is with you now!
Be strong and courageous!
Lead your family. Lead your friends. Lead your co-worker and your neighbor. It is time to push those fears aside and be the leader God has called you to be! If you don’t lead them, who will? As God leads you, you must tend to those He has entrusted to you. The time is now, not tomorrow or next week—it’s time to lead today!
Prayer: My Heavenly Father, thank you for reminding me that you have a plan and a purpose for me and all of your people. Thank you, Lord, for calling me out of my fears and instructing me to lead. Thank you for the strength to speak out. Help me lead those you have placed in my care. I know time is short; there’s no time to waste. Help me be the leader you’ve called me to be. In Jesus name, Amen!

Hi Bridget B,
Remember God is still in control. Just believe and God will take care of the rest. You may feel like a wounded solider right now but God will pick you up and take you to a place of peace real soon. Just believe. It’s already done. Your blessings are already on their way. Keep holding on God got you my sister.
God is in total control of our lives if we allow him to be. I have had many seasons in my life looking back. I am in the mist of one now. It seems that it will never end! The pain the hurt that has been attached to this season has been tuff. My christian friends are praying so hard for me.
I feel those prayers and stay faithful to what God has called me to do and be!
Through it all God Will Prevail in the end of this SEASON! This to shall pass!
Thank You Heavenly Father that I am a Daughter of the King! Romans 8:28
Please pray for me sisters in Christ and I shall pray for all of you!
Valerie, the only thing that shall never pass is the goodness of the Lord. As long as we make the Lord our portion in the land of the living He’ll always be good to us in ways that we can never understand. It shall be well with yu since you trust our God Lord. Praying for you

Thank you Heavenly father for pushing my fear aside on yesterday that you gave me the opportunity to teach a bible study and to pray with the edlerly thank you that you put the word you wanted me to say to your people Lord I am making for for more opportunity to uplift and to give you the Glory that you so richly deserve i want to go Higher Height and Deeper Dept in you in Jesus name Amen and Amen.
This is my first devotional from this site and let me say that it couldn’t have been a better day for me to start. I work in the helping profession and often times the burden in my job is a great one. I often wonder why God placed me in a job where so many people depend on me. After reading this it reassured me that God placed me right where he needed me. To be a strong leader for my patients/clients and for him! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! My Lord and Savior thank you for this opportunity to be a witness to your world and to portray the actions of a forgiven sinner, covered in the blood of Christ, Amen. May you all have a blessed day!
Thank you Father for inspiring the DOTK writers with Your word. Every day you speak to me from the daily postings. Prayers for everyone who contributes to this. Prayers for me to stand firm and fearless with my faith in you to obey your commands.
Dear Bridget, l’m inspired by you saying that you won’t be there for long ! That is indeed the mark of a leader- that u are . When He is finished trying us we shall come out refined n purified ready for the master’s use. No more delays use me for your glory lord to showcase your mark of leadership in me. l love u lord !!!!
Amen sister, thank u and bless u on your journey!
Thank You Father God for always being in control. Your word says ” No weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue raised up against me shall proved to be in the wrong.”You have not given me a spirit of fearand timidity but of power, love and a sound mind. You Yourself have said that You will not on any way fail me nor give up nor leave me without support . You will not in any degree leave me helpless nor forsake nor let me. So I take comfort and am encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper, I will not be seized with alarm. What can man do to me? Yes though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. You are my Light and my Salvation- whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? In righteousness Iwwill be established:Tyranny will be far from me; I will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed, it will not come near me. I will not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, for it is my Father’s pleasure to give me the kingdom.
Thank You Father that Your Word is a two edged sword that penetrate to make a dividing line between the spirit of life and the eternal spirit , exposing, sifting and analysing the very intensions of the heart. Today I bring Your wounded body Your brave soldiers to You and I ask You to attend to each ones hurt. You know what they’re going through where they are in their walk with You. You have chosen them and You have sent Your Son to pay the full price for their whole salvation! I pray that their spiritual needs be met. Make Yourself and Your Love so real to them that they will never be the same again. Come Holy Spirit touch their hearts with the Fathers Lovefor whwhere there is Love Your Love, there is no fear!
Thank You that NOTHING can separate us from Your Love. Cover us fill us now in Jesus name Amen.
Zebi thank u for that powerful prayer,I receive it in Jesus name
Amen my sister beautifully prayed.:”)
The word today is so timely, am in awe of God. Just attended a leadership summit in my church ( one community church, plano) we’ve also been studying the book of Joshua in our bold series. So this is absolutely God’s calling into something greater than us. Whatever situation we might find ourselves is a training ground to equip us for where we are going. We are soldiers of Christ, our training makes us stronger, wiser, relentless, more tenacious and focused on the crown that is set before us. Peace!
Thank you Lord for leading me, so I can lead others to you. Amen!
We all that are believers have the DNA to lead, however fear sometimes causes us to remain silent and withdrawn from that role. Bless you for the word of encouragement that the Lord will never leave us and in Him we can do all things. Now more than ever we must Represent Christ in the earth leading people to the true knowledge of our Lord and Saviour freeing people from the grips of their sin and leading by Christ example He displayed while He was in the earth. Thank you Lord for the word which brings hope and life and to take on executing what has already been placed within. No fear Just Courage!!!
Hallelujah Thank you Lord for this devotion you Lord are speaking into my life Lord guide me and lead me in the direction that you will have me to go it’s all your plan in my life cover me in the blood of Jesus as I walk by faith not by fear but God faith in His plan My God My God talk to me I feel your presence with some tears in my eyes show me Lord Please to move forward with you God Thank you Thank you God Amen

Father we come boldly to You and ask You to take full control of every situation which is stopping us to reach Your will for our lives. Thank You that You will finish that which You have started. Your plan which You have for each and everyone will prevail nothing will and can stop what You have started. Establish Your people and lead them in Your way of Righteousness. I pray that”the fear of God” will prevail in all of us so that we can honour and serve You the way You want to be honoured and glorified. Thank You for loving us and caring for each of us more than anyone else can . Nobody can love us the way You do.
Father God, I pray that your Will be done in my life with my family. Lead me and show me the Godly paths you have for me, to serve you on a daily basis. Fill me Lord with your fresh annointing oil and let my cup run over to overflow. Help me to be the Godly woman you have created me to be. Thank for the leadership you have placed on my life as a leader. Father God I thank you for allowing me to go through the fire, as you are refining and purifying me to become the vessel, for you, my Master. To be used by you, through you and for you however you desire, for I am your creation. Thank you for your Love, Grace and Mercy in everything you are doing in my family and let this testimony be one that would bring you all the Glory, Honor and Praise. Thank you for loving me just as I am. Thank you Abba Father in Jesus name. Amen, Amen and Amen.
Amen to your wonderful prayers Zebi
Sweet Bridget! How sweet of you not to give up on God!!! I surely agree with yu that there’s no where else to go apart from His presence. Where else would you get the kind of comfort that He gives? You ar a real soldier coz a soldier never gives up! A soldier never quits!! Am so glad that you still find solace in Him. We’re are stronger in our weaknesses through Christ Jesus.
If you had the strength to get here, then I knw that you’ve the strength to see/take it to the end!!!
Don’t you be afraid coz yu ain’t alone, He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
You ar an overcomer Bridget
Ask and you’ll receive, seek and you’ll find, knock and it shall be opened for yu!!! Dear Lord these are your words, the very words that you gave to us your children.
Call into me and I’ll answer you, I’ll show you great and marvellous things that you know nothing about!!!
When you call to me I’ll hear you and answer you from heaven.
Now Lord, we ar praying in strength using the very words you gave us and you never lie!!! We seek to find you in cricket’s life.
You knw her best and all her wants and needs and since you promised not to deafen your ears to our call, we’re calling on you on her behalf!!!
We loose the evil spirit that’s breaking her apart and we bind your Holyspirit in her.
We loose the spirit of bad luck in her and we bind the spirit of your plans in her life.
We stop the shouts of the devil in her life. Those shouts that tell her her negativities and bind the spirit of your good promises in her life.
Help her let go of the past bcoz yu ar doing new things in her life.
Help her arise and shine for this us her time. No longer will the Sun, moon and stars light her ways coz you’ll be her everlasting/eternal light.
She’s in the wilderness Lord and we’re praying for you not to leave her. We’ll celebrate her 40 days of victory!!!
Just as you guided the Israelites in the wilderness, guide her too with a cloud and fire. When she’s hungry send her manna from heaven. Open her eyes to c a well when she’s thirsty and always help her look at the cross for her strength!!!
We pray that you renew her strength like an eagle, she’s gonna run and never get weary!!! She’ll soar high in the sky to look for you and she’ll find you.
We need her back with us, we miss her already!! Help her put the devil in his right place and always crown her with victory.
We redden her with your blood, marking her all over with your blood for all evils to pass her over.
We pray that you hear us, Lord hear us
