Bible Verse(s)Exodus 14:13

In Exodus, Moses provides us with an awesome example of standing up to our fears and overcoming them. In his case, he overcame many fears-- a fear of public speaking, a fear of leading, a fear of facing up to his past, and many other things. You know what's cool? Since the people knew he overcame his fears to help them they were able to face their own fears as they fled captivity in Egypt:
"Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again."
