39 Bible Verses About Courage

We all get to a point in life where things seem so scary and we can help but be afraid. There are so many things in our daily lives that can make us feel scared. Could be due to an illness or disease, even a loved one getting sick can cause us to be scared.

It could be the fear of something impending that we know we have to face, it could be the fear of survival because we are broke and jobless and so many other things.

But no matter what happens in life, no matter what comes your way, you have to be courageous and move forward? But how do you get courage? The truth is, you are only human, and relying on yourself can’t give you the courage you need to go on in life.

Self-confidence is a good thing, I know and it will take you far. But as a human, it doesn’t matter how confident you are in yourself, there is going to be something greater than you. So true courage comes from God. God is the Almighty. There is nothing He can’t do.

So you can only truly be courageous in life if you believe in God, not in yourself. So having courage in God, it’s all about your faith in Him. It’s about trusting that He is there for you. It’s about trusting that He won’t let evil come to you. It’s about trusting that He will overcome all.

So when life gets hard and you feel scared, don’t focus on your challenges, focus on God. Trust in Him. Look up to Him, and He will deliver you. Here are over 30 bible verses about courage, to remind you that God is always there for you so you need not be afraid.
