Seeing through Fear or Faith?

And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
Numbers 13:33 KJV

Fear is one of the strongest weapon the devil has. Faith is its opposite. North Western Medicine reports that, ” Fear is experienced in your mind, but it triggers a strong physical reaction in your body”. The experience of fear does not necessarily have to be true. Health experts also report that stress can cause blurred vision. ” When we are severely stressed and anxious, high levels of adrenaline in the body can cause pressure on the eyes, resulting in blurred vision ”. Would a forty day strategic spying have raised the stress level of these young soldiers? Would they have experienced blurred visions coupled with fear? Lisa Fritscher in an article published on November 22,2022 reports that: ” Sometimes fear stems from real threats, but it can also originate from imagined dangers. While fear is a natural response to some situations, it can also lead to distress and disruption when extreme or out of proportion to the actual threat ”. Now you wont be surprised that it has become the devils biggest weapon. This weapon is not only used by the enemy during spying. It is used every day so that the enemy can keep people as little slaves. Faith listens to a different voice. It tells you that all things are possible under God. It tells you that God cant bring you this far to be killed by giants. Later on, others earned reputations by becoming giant killers. Your faith is the most powerful antidote against fear.
