Giving Confidence

Good Leaders exhibit confidence
Because they know God is there.
Fears are overcome
As they offer a prayer.

Prayer is a their weapon
As they seek to do what’s right.
They are assured God is helping
And ready for every fight.

To fight against their enemies;
Using God’s Word called the sword;
The angels are near;
The Spirit is heard.

Heard are His directions
From the Spirit’s quiet voice;
Encouraging with inspiration;
And giving each a choice.

The right choice is the Master;
Like a mountain He will stand;
Standing rock solid over time;
Just follow His command.

About Mark Shields

Mark works in the Information Systems Department for an Insurance Company. He volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church and runs the 10:50 worship service computer. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. You’re invited to join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
