So on the day of the battle not a soldier with Saul and Jonathan had a sword or spear in his hand...
You always put a tool between yourself and the fear you are facing!
You can defeat fear soundly even when you still have the feelings of fear!
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
We have two close-quarters weapons that are murderously effective against fear!
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
And take the... sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit...

Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite. As one of the three mighty warriors, he was with David when they taunted the Philistines gathered at Pas Dammim for battle. Then the men of Israel retreated, but he stood his ground and struck down the Philistines till his hand grew tired and froze to the sword. The Lord brought about a great victory that day. The troops returned to Eleazar, but only to strip the dead.
Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day...
He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
The Word of God is like a fighting seed!
