Love doesn't brag, is not proud, doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
Humility is the true source of our strength. All strength comes from God, including what we already have. Our current life and strength is a generous free gift from God, given to us despite our sin. And for those who repent and are faithful to Jesus Christ, they receive life and strength eternally.
True strength is found when we realize that the strength we thought was ours was God's all along, and we are completely dependent on Him and His strength. All life comes from God. For this reason, God's strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound. In everything and in all things have I learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need. I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has taken you but such as man can bear. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Have you not known? have you not heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn't faint, neither is weary; there is no searching of his understanding. He gives power to the faint; and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but those who wait for Yahweh shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.
Haven't I commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; don't be afraid, neither be dismayed: for Yahweh your God is with you wherever you go.
Faith is believing that what God says is true. True faith is revealed in our actions, because the one who truly believes that God tells the truth will act accordingly. Just like you will know false prophets by their actions (Matthew 7:15-20), you know who is faithful by their actions and behaviors (Titus 1:16).
Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, And don't lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, And he will direct your paths.
Looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.
Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.
God promises to never leave us or forsake us. He is our hope and our strength. He gives us peace unending.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.
