Welcome to Impact University!

Do you have courage?  One of the things you must have to succeed is courage.  Courage releases strength, boldness over your life.   There must be a level of courage in your life or you will walk in fear or intimidation.

The word of God gives us many examples of those that stood in courage, fought in courage, went into many battles in courage and believed they would be victorious because of the promise the Lord had given them.

 The Lord will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. 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.”

Deuteronomy 31:5-6

Then God commanded Joshua to BE strong and courageous.

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.” 

Joshua 1:9
