2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
6 I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 1:26-29
26 Brothers, consider your calling: Not many are wise from a human perspective, not many powerful, not many of noble birth. 27 Instead, God has chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen what is weak in the world to shame the strong. 28 God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world—what is viewed as nothing—to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, 29 so that no one can boast in His presence.
