9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
God commands you to be strong and courageous. Can you do this? Can you defeat discouragement? Can you defeat fear? Yes you can! Know that God is with you wherever you go at all times and in all things. Know that you can get your strength and courage from God. It is there for the asking. He would not tell you to be strong and courageous if He knew you could not. He knows you can through Him.
