“Where the Current of the Holy Spirit is, Simply Go Along with it!”
(Quote from Watchman Nee)
If you study carefully the history of the church, you will find that throughout the generations there has been one stream of the Holy Spirit flowing all the time. Many have been working for the Lord, but not all have been in the flowing of that one stream. If you will accept the mercy and the grace of the Lord, you will be brought into that very stream that is flowing today.
Once Brother Nee said to me, “If you realize where the current of the Holy Spirit is, simply go along with it!” To work there for the Lord will be a rest to you; it will be a bed upon which you can lie. The work in the flowing of the Holy Spirit is not a burden but a rest.” I cannot tell you how much these words have helped me. From that time I have learned the lesson that I must go along with the flowing of the stream of the Holy Spirit. I cannot go to any place to work for the Lord or to start a work for the Lord without the flowing of the current of the Holy Spirit. I am unable to do that, I am not qualified to do that, and I am not ordered by the Lord to do that. What I must do is just go along with the flowing…The words of the hymn say; “Not where we elect to go, / But where Jesus leads the way; / There the living waters flow, / There our darkness turns to day” (Hymns #907) (Witness Lee, The Divine Stream, pp. 13, 15-16)
