“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’” – Isaiah 41:10

God has commanded us to be of “good courage”. And courage is definitely needed to pursue a Biblical Life in the times in which we live. My Dad, who now lives in Heaven, use to say that “Courage was the facing of fear; not the absence of it.”
I always thought that was a great way of putting it. Fear is a feeling that we can not always escape, but we can choose to act anyway :). And our decision to act is made easier in that we know God will Help us :).
