The Israelites came up against the Hittites in the Promised Land as one of the many enemies they faced. The Hittites were known for instilling fear in their enemies resulting in stress and anxiety. The Bible has over three hundred references of telling us to not be afraid but to be courageous. When God says something that many times it’s a good indicator that He means what He says.
The causes of fear are many but one thing for sure is that it’s just a state of mind and most of what you fear never materializes. In 2 Timothy 1:7 Paul says, “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” The devil is the author of all fear because fear is the opposite of faith. When your faith is attacked and fear comes upon you it may be the devil projecting his fears on you because he is afraid of you.
