19 Eternal Truths to Achieve Groundbreaking Leadership Development

We’re living in the Era of Exponential Progress. Some see these times as an exciting adventure. Others feel anxious, as they fall prey to the toxic impact of the Fear Pandemic.

What about you? How are the economic, technological, spiritual, relational, and intellectual challenges impacting your role as a leader and your Leadership Development initiatives?

For these difficult times, we need strategies to strengthen a courageous character core, develop courageous confidence, and courageously collaborate with others.

In the Courage Series, I discuss these leadership mountains and share insights, tips, and resources for you to expand your leadership influence.

Fear, uncertainty, and chaos are nothing new. That’s why we find many scripture references to address these challenges. I trust that this compilation of my favorite Courage Scripture Quotes will inspire and motivate you to live with courage every day.

The Old Testament

Deuteronomy 31:6-8

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”  Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the LORD swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance.  The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Joshua 1:6

Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

Joshua 1:9-11

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.”  So Joshua ordered the officers of the people:  “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.”

1 Chronicles 28:20

David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.”

Psalm 23:1-4

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,  he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 27:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Psalm 31:24

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

Psalm 56:3-4

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.  In God, whose word I praise— in God, I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

 Psalm 112:7

They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Isaiah 41:10-13

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.  Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.  For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 54:4

“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

New Testament

Mark 5:36

Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. 

1 Corinthians 15:58
