Are you facing any giants today?

How do your giant(s) compare with Goliath?

1 Samuel 17:4 says:

“And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”

Based on the King James Version of the Bible six cubits and a span would make Goliath over nine feet tall. However, if you believe the Jewish historian Josephus was four cubits and a span or roughly six feet six inches tall.

When you consider the average height of a man in Biblical times was five feet three inches. . . Goliath was a real giant, regardless.

1 Samuel 17:5 says:

“And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.”

 According to my historical research Goliath’s helmet weighed roughly 66 pounds and his brass coat weighed roughly 175 pounds.   Can you imagine your 6’6” neighbor carrying a 175- pound backpack and wearing a 66-pound Yankees hat?

According to most psychological studies regarding worry.

40% of our worries never come to pass.

30% involve past decisions which cannot be changed.

12% of our worries focus on the criticism of others who spoke simply because they felt inferior.

10% of our worries are about our health. . .which gets worse with worry.

Finally, 8% of our worries can actually be described as legitimate causes for concern.

Let's look first at what worry actually is.

Worry is a state of feeling generally anxious and uneasy about something. We often refer to it as troubled thought.

If you were to look up worry in the dictionary, there is a meaning to the word worry that comes four or five descriptions down the list. It comes from the root word behind worry. It reads this way: "To seize or bite and hold on to!"

You might think of it as how a dog plays with a rag doll when he takes it in his teeth and begins to shake it until the stuffing comes out!

That’s a good example of what worry will do to you.
