Mark Twain said, Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear–not absence of fear. When someone tells me they have “no fear” I think “no brain”. Being strong and having courage is about trusting God and moving on. Fear will paralyze. I think FDR said it best, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Be blessed by these verses about being strong and courageous.
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
“Only be strong and very courageous, faithfully doing everything in the teachings that my servant Moses commanded you. Don’t turn away from them. Then you will succeed wherever you go. Joshua 1:7
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can Man do to me?”
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
He gives power to the weak. He increases the strength of him who has no might.
When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee. In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can [mere] man do to me?
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones. And when you have finished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake. -Victor Hugo
Down through the centuries in times of trouble and trial God has brought courage to the hearts of those who love Him. The Bible is filled with assurances of God’s help and comfort in every kind of trouble which might cause fears to arise in the human heart. You can look ahead with promise, hope, and joy. -Billy Graham
