Subject: December 28th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

For it is God who worketh in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. Philippians 2.13.

A lady once died, and on the tombstone were inscribed her own words: “She did what she could not do!”

Daily we live through impassable days. For us to obtain perfect salvation and live a clean life, it has to be the work of God. Many try to imitate Christ, which they will never succeed in doing. Yet because God does it, I can do it. Hold fast to the fact that He works in me. It is not I who work; I only work because God is first working. If I ever attempt to work out the lofty demands of the Bible by myself, I am destined for failure. All I must do is to ask God to work in me till I am willing.
