5 Reasons To Face The Giant Of Worry

Posted on Monday, July 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Worry seems almost human.  Ever notice how often Worry wants to have a conversation with you?

Jesus Christ challenged his listeners not to give into the lies that Worry screams.

Jesus said, Don’t “worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear… Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?

When life is beating you senseless and you wanna sigh, cry or die you might say “No! I’m not feeling valuable at all!”

Anticipating our response Jesus offers us logic, “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

Yes, a rhetorical question, the answer is of course, “no!”

So, Jesus adds, “why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. …And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and [gone] tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? … These things dominate your thoughts, “but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.” 1

It’s important to be honest with ourselves when we worry.

Let’s be honest and face the giant of worry because, as David Jeremiah in his book Slaying the Giants in Your Life says:

– Worry is inconsistent
– Worry is irrational
– Worry is ineffective
– Worry is illogical
– Worry is irreligious

1 – Matthew 6:25-32, NLT
2 – David Jeremiah’s Slaying the Giants in Your Life is available here on
