Deuteronomy 31:6 says  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.”

And

Joshua 1:9 9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Is there something you are afraid of doing? Speaking up for yourself? Talking to crowds? Applying for that position? Whatever it is, know that you don’t have to be afraid  We can be confident, courageous, and of good cheer because of God, who is with us. When God is protecting and guiding us, we can have courage because we are confident in Him.

So step out, do something bold, and KNOW God’s got your back!

Look at these great quotes on being courageous by some very successful people!

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

Steve Jobs

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Nelson Mandela

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

Muhammad Ali

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

Winston Churchill
