What does the Bible say about courage? Courage is also referred to in scripture as “good cheer,” meaning boldness and trust. God commands us throughout the Bible not to be afraid, to be joyful, and to have courage in our lives.
Occasionally, we doubt our own strength and faith, but we may turn to scripture for motivation to live in good cheer and trust in God.
We should be able to conquer our fears and live a life full of courage with the help and guidance of God. It is God who orders us to be brave because that means having faith and trust in Him. We can find the courage that God wants us to have through scripture.
