July 18 Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee No man can say, Jesus is Lord, but in the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12.3.We know that there is one declaration God loves to hear from us, which is, that we say to Him, "You Are." And we say to the Lord, "You are Lord!" This important word, that "Jesus is Lord!", can be a most powerful declaration. Sometimes when things are in disarray and Satan mocks you by saying that you are now helpless, all you need doeven if you cannot pray at such a timeis simply to declare. You proclaim aloud: "Jesus is Lord!" And you shall instantly see that entangled things are nothing and that Satans mocking is nothing. When you are being severely tried, you should rise up and speak this word. Whether it is in your own room or in a prayer meeting, you should say, "Jesus is Lord!"by which you are telling Him: "You Are!" The Lord loves to hear such a declaration, and we shall be strengthened inwardly as a result.
