Courage is important for us in these days we are living in as believers in Jesus Christ. Our God needs men and women who are courageous to achieve the things He has destined for us. He knows that so many things are there in the world to discourage us and put fear in us.
This is why throughout the Bible, God always tells us to fear not, be courageous and, know that I am with you. We have to be bold and stand in the face of adversity.
Here are some Bible verses that encourage the believers to be strong and courageous at all times:
