Subject: September 22nd — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him. Romans 6.6.

It is imperative for us to ask the Spirit of the Lord for revelation that we may see how our old man was crucified with Christ. No matter how temptation may sometimes come—causing us to feel as though our old man has not died—we will nonetheless believe in what God has done rather than in our feeling and experience. When we truly see this as a fact we shall find that the experience of it will naturally follow. Let us notice that God’s fact does not become factual because we so believe; instead, we believe so because God’s fact is already factual.

Whenever he is tempted or tested, the person must believe that God’s word and God’s fact are more dependable than his own feeling. If he fully believes in God’s word, God will be responsible for giving him the experience. Should a person turn to his own past negative experience he will be defeated and will not have any future positive experience. By our believing in God’s fact, our spiritual life will daily advance.
