“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” -Deuteronomy 31:6
As an athlete, I practice, compete, win, and lose all the time. Sometimes it is just so physically and mentally draining that I feel like I can’t do it anymore. If a team or another player is really good I get intimidated and down on myself. God will NEVER leave me. Ever. There is no need for me to worry. I should not be afraid.
For anyone that competes in anything, whether it’s a sport or something else, can get something out of the verse. Always stay strong and be confident. Your Heavenly Father is forever with you so don’t be afraid. Go into any competition, game, or even a test with strength and courage. Everything is possible.
