What do we do when the pressures of life seem to surround us? The answer, according to Brother Witness Lee, is to draw on God’s supply by faith.
In Messages for Working Saints, Brother Witness Lee writes:
I know that many working brothers and sisters, after finding a job, experience pressure from their boss, competition from their co-workers, plus the jealousy of the aggressive ones. It is indeed not a simple situation. Not only so, but after marriage they will have a wife, and not long afterwards they will have children. It is indeed troublesome. Although there is enjoyment in these things, yet it is not without troubles. What shall we do? This is just like the hymn we sang tonight, which says,
Thou art all my life, Lord,
In me Thou dost live;
With Thee all God’s fullness
Thou to me dost give.
By Thy holy nature I am sanctified,
By Thy resurrection, Vict’ry is supplied.
The last stanza says,
I would cease completely
From my efforts vain,
Let Thy life transform me,
Full release to gain.
This is just like what the Bible shows us. The divine power of God has granted unto us all things related to life and godliness. The sufficient life supply will meet all our needs. Therefore, we do not have to worry; we need only to draw on God’s supply by faith.
Do we have this kind of experience? Have we touched the Lord as our sufficient supply in the midst of pressure at work or trouble at home?
