The Worst Case Scenario

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

I’ve written of two towering saints of the twentieth century; Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand, leaders of the underground church in Romania, who had both spent years in Communist prisons for their faith. I was blessed to have known them personally in the latter part of their lives. In her late 80s, Sabina was diagnosed with cancer. At one point, they received word that their insurance might not pay for the treatment. Richard was concerned and asked me, “What can we do if they don’t pay?” “What’s the worst they can do?” I answered, “They can put you and Sabina in prison, but you both are at your best when you’re in prison. So what do you have to worry about?” He laughed, but it’s true.

We deal with so many issues and so many things in life that we could be worried about. Try this: Ask yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen?” The worst that can happen is your life ends. But then what? Then Heaven! So stop living in fear and anxiety – and start really living in God’s righteousness. Remember, the worst thing that can happen to you now – is Heaven!

Today’s Mission – Today, don’t walk in fear. Instead, walk fearlessly in God’s righteousness.

The Mirrors Of God

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

I knew two great saints of God, Sabina and Richard Wurmbrand, leaders of the underground church in Romania. In Sabina’s last days, she was in great pain. Feeling overwhelmed, she asked the Lord, “How long?” He reminded her of how, as a young woman, she’d taken some jewelry to be worked on. The jeweler put her jewelry over a flame.Panicking, she’d cried, “You’re going to destroy it!” He turned up the fire and said, “Trust me, I know what I’m doing. I have to keep it on the fire until I can see my reflection on the metal. Then it’s finished.” She heard the Lord say, “Don’t panic, trust Me. I Am the Master Jeweler. You must go through the fire for a moment and when I can see My face reflected in you, it will be finished.” Soon after that, she peacefully went home to be with the Lord. When you go through trials, don’t fear. God’s purpose isn’t to hurt you, but to change you into the image of Messiah. God wants to see His reflection in you because you’re His jewel and He’s your Master Jeweler.

Today’s Mission – Are you going through a trial today? Allow God to purify you so that He can see His reflection in you.
