Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong, be courageous. Do not be frightened, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you every where you go."

Psalms 144:1-2
"Blessed be the Lord my God who teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight, trust in him and thou shalt dwelleth in His land forever. For He is my loving God and my fortress; my high tower and my deliverer - my shield in whom I take refuge who subdues peoples beneath me."  -
