Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

keys to spiritual maturity -
One of the qualities that goes hand in hand with courage is bravery. Courage for me tends to be a bit of a philosophical concept. Bravery on the other hand makes it real.
I recently watched a documentary on David Livingstone. He was a Christian Missionary, who, in the face of tremendous difficulty, went to explore Africa. At times he was sick with malaria and he still went on and was the first European to see The Smoke That Thunders, which he named the Victoria Falls. This gives courage a face and that face is called bravery.

2 Samuel 13:28 Fear not; have I not commanded you? Be courageous and brave.
Psalm 27:14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let you heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
