Holy Worms

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Be sure to continue to obey all of the commandments Moses gave you. Love the Lord and follow his plan for your lives. Cling to him and serve him enthusiastically. Joshua 22:5

Growing up, I would look out after a rain storm and see the worms. It was worm heaven. Worms can be heavenly. Jonah was a prophet who resisted his call, who was miserable at the end. He was under the shade of a plant and God “prepared” a worm to eat the plant. In Hebrew, manah means appoint or ordain. God ordained a worm. Jonah served the Lord begrudgingly. But the worm served God with all his heart and happily ate the plant. The worm just did what it was born to do. It served God, and it was blessed and full. That’s what ministry is. God is calling you to serve Him. So stop avoiding Him, stop complaining, and stop serving Him begrudgingly. Just do it, because it’s your calling to do what you were made for. Serve Him with all your heart. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desire of your heart. Serve Him. Repent and minister; you were born for it. You will end up blessed and filled with joy. You will be as happy as a worm.

Today’s Mission – Today rejoice that you were made for such a time as this. Do what He’s called you to do; do the will of God, but with your whole heart.
