Subject: December 27th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

And Simon answered and said, Master, we toiled all night, and took nothing: but at thy word I will let down the nets. Luke 5.5.

Since God possesses everything and is able to do everything, He must be all. Everything must be done in the power of the Holy Spirit. Some people may think that if man is reduced to zero the word of God will greatly suffer—that everything will cease its progress and fruit will be diminished, if not eradicated altogether. But what we stress is real spiritual work and real spiritual fruit before God.

The work of the Spirit in only five minutes has more spiritual usefulness than all our labor through the night that gets nothing. Is it not far better to wait for the Lord’s command and obtain a netful of fish in but one casting?
