A Table In The Wilderness

by Watchman Nee

“Our one fundamental need is the blessing of God upon our life. What do we mean by blessing? It is the working of God where there is nothing to account for His working. We calculate that a dollar should buy a dollars-worth; but if we have not paid our dollar, and God has given us ten thousand dollars-worth, then we have no basis for our calculations. When God spreads for us a table in the wilderness, when five loaves provide food for five thousand and leave twelve baskets of fragments, that is blessing? Blessing is fruit all out of relation to what we are. It comes when God works completely beyond our understanding, for His name’s sake.”
