We can’t be brave without God

Habakkuk 3:19 The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk not to stand still in terror, but to walk and make spiritual progress upon my high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility! 

Zechariah 12:8 When that day comes, the Eternal will protect her citizens as a shield does. He will make the weak who stumble become like David, brave in battle; the royal line of David will be like God, like the Special Messenger of the Eternal One who goes before them in travels and in battle. 

Brave walks in peace

Daniel 10:19 Messenger: Do not be afraid, you who are highly regarded by God. May peace rest on you and make you whole; be strong; be brave. At his words, I grew even stronger. Daniel: Please continue, my lord, for your words have given me strength. 

John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.

Brave speaks the truth

Ephesians 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains—so pray that I can bravely pronounce the truth, as I should do. 

Wait, hope, expect

Psalm 27:13-14 I will move past my enemies with this one, sure hope: that with my own eyes, I will see the goodness of the Eternal in the land of the living. Please answer me: Don’t give up. Wait for the Eternal in expectation, and be strong. Again, wait for the Eternal.

Wait, hope and expect God to fulfil His promises. 

Brave does not give up

Psalm 31:24 Be brave. Be strong. Don’t give up. Expect God to get here soon.

Brave obeys

Ezra 10:4 Arise, for it is your duty, and we are with you. Be strong and brave and do it.

Brave leads

Deuteronomy 31:7 Then Moses spoke to Joshua, with all of Israel looking on. Moses: Be strong and brave! You’re going to lead these people into the land the Eternal promised their ancestors He’d give them. You’ll give it to them, and they’ll give it to their descendants. 

Brave leads. Lead well. Let’s be brave together.
