Deut

Should this be how you deal with your fears?

(7:16) “You must destroy all the nations the LORD your God hands over to you. Show them no mercy, and do not worship their gods, or they will trap you.
(7:17) Perhaps you will think to yourselves, ‘How can we ever conquer these nations that are so much more powerful than we are?’
(7:18) But don’t be afraid of them! Just remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all the land of Egypt.
(7:19) Remember the great terrors the LORD your God sent against them. You saw it all with your own eyes! And remember the miraculous signs and wonders, and the strong hand and powerful arm with which he brought you out of Egypt. The LORD your God will use this same power against all the people you fear.
(7:20) And then the LORD your God will send terror to drive out the few survivors still hiding from you!

(7:21) “No, do not be afraid of those nations, for the LORD your God is among you, and he is a great and awesome God.
(7:22) The LORD your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little. You will not clear them away all at once, otherwise the wild animals would multiply too quickly for you.
(7:23) But the LORD your God will hand them over to you. He will throw them into complete confusion until they are destroyed.
(7:24) He will put their kings in your power, and you will erase their names from the face of the earth. No one will be able to stand against you, and you will destroy them all.

(7:25) “You must burn their idols in fire, and you must not covet the silver or gold that covers them. You must not take it or it will become a trap to you, for it is detestable to the LORD your God.
(7:26) Do not bring any detestable objects into your home, for then you will be destroyed, just like them. You must utterly detest such things, for they are set apart for destruction.
