Fear can come from the inside or outside and can be real or imagined. When the spies went into the land to see what it was like in Numbers 13, only Joshua and Caleb came back with a good report. The other 10 spies caused the people to fear by comparing themselves to the giants as grasshoppers. Fear can be overcome by applying 2 Tim 1:7 because we have power (the name of Jesus Christ), God's love and promises of protection, and sound guidance and instruction (the mind of Christ). Romans 8:31-37 summarizes how these work together.
