He used a spiritual device to measure faith. He did it by judging words and actions. Let's look at an example of this in the Bible.
Don't let Satan discourage you; don't let pressure or anything else take your joy. If Satan steals your joy, he will get your strength. If you are weak, you won't be able to resist.

You are dressed in the full armor of God, holding your shield of faith to quench every fiery dart. But your shield is getting so heavy with darts that you can hardly hold it up. Your helmet is about to fall off.
