“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle” -Sun Tzu
Proverbs 2:7-8 7 he stores up sound wisdom(tuwshiya) for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8 guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.
The same divine courage Jesus used, is the same that is accessible to us; all we need to do is be humble or learn from our enforced humility and we will be guaranteed victory.
