Subject: November 3rd — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

And I also say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16.18.

Many can testify of the numerous times when they encountered difficulties against which faith and prayer did not seem to produce any victorious effect until one day they rose up and declared: “Jesus, You are Lord, You are King, You have trampled the devil under Your feet, and You have destroyed all the works of the enemy!” As soon as this declaration was made, they were strangely strengthened. In this situation, the best prayer is not one of asking; the best prayer is one of declaring: “You Are!” “You Are!” is the church’s declaration of faith. The church is not only built on God’s revelation but is also built on men’s declaration of the revelation they receive. Declaration as a result of revelation is full of spiritual value. It has the spiritual power to shake Hades.
