Subject: November 6th — 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.

There was once a sister whose conscience was so much under accusation that she reckoned she would never want God’s will nor would she ever again obey Him. She was in anguish to such an extent that it was as if she were merely waiting to hear the sentence of death. At that very hour, however, she had a prayer within her. She whispered to God: “O God, though I cannot desire after Your will, I beg You to give me this obedience.” Strangely, the word of Philippians 2.13 supported her that day. She had now begun to understand that unless God had worked in her heart she would not have been able to pray such a prayer. Since God did work in her to pray this prayer, He most certainly caused her to will and to work for His good pleasure. He had enabled her to obey His will because such is the purpose of His working. She saw it, arose, and was full of joy.
