  • Who is the me I want to be 12 months from now?

Joshua 1:5-9  //  No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 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.”

  • Be Strong and Courageous
  • Fear Not

Acts 4:29  //  Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.

Acts 1:8  //  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

  • Courage > Integrity
  • Courage > Integrity > Humility
  • Integrity is rooted in humility.

Numbers 12:3  //  Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.

Deuteronomy 34:9  //  Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.

Philippians 1:20-21 //  I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

  • Courage is not the absence of fear. It is the absence of self.
