Subject: June 18th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace. Romans 6.14.

In America there was once a Christian who had been able to overcome many things in his life except for four or five sins which he committed repeatedly. He confessed that his history was a story of continual confession. One day he read Romans 6.14. He accordingly prayed as follows: “Your word says sin shall not have dominion over me, but my situation attests that sin has had dominion over me. Nevertheless, today I believe in Your word, therefore I declare I have already overcome my sin.” Later on, when one of the same temptations came his way, he would still fall if he looked at himself; but whenever he trusted in the word of God, telling God that His word could not be untrue, he experienced victory. And thus he lived a victorious life. Here is the most important thing for us to lay hold of: God’s word. If you look at yourself, you shall be as corrupted as you were before. If you look at your environment, it will be as difficult as it has always been. But if you believe in God’s word, you are able to overcome.
