Fear is Physical. Fear is experienced in your mind, but it triggers a strong physical reaction in your body. As soon as you recognize fear, your amygdala (small organ in the middle of your brain) goes to work. It alerts your nervous system, which sets your body's fear response into motion.

Is faith the opposite of fear?

Faith is a choice and a gift from God; it isn't something you can really feel, though it can lead to feelings such as assurance and confidence in the Lord....Faith is not the opposite of fear. Because faith is a choice and fear is a feeling, they can't be opposites. May 25, 2020

"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." "Do not fear the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid. Do not fear him, declares the LORD, for I am with you, to save you and to deliver you from his hand." Jul 7, 2020
