Subject: May 24th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place; thou, and the ark of thy strength. Psalm 132.8.

As long as the children of Israel maintained their proper relationship with the tabernacle or the temple they were victorious, and no nation could overcome them. Even though their enemies learned how to fight while they themselves were not familiar with fighting, the children of Israel overcame all their enemies nonetheless. But the moment they had problems with the tabernacle or the temple, they were taken into captivity. Nothing else—whether they had powerful kings or great wisdom in themselves—mattered at all; the only concern which mattered was whether or not they had offended the ark of the tabernacle or temple. If the Lord had the preeminence, then theirs was the victory. So, too, with us today. In minding the victory of Christ, we also have the victory. Except we give Christ the highest place we are not able to overcome. Unless Christ has the preeminence in our heart we cannot overcome.
