I was very impressed with the reading of Chapter 4 of the book ”The All-inclusive Indwelling Spirit.” In it brother Witness Lee encouraged us to ”never let your mind to be vacant.”
”We need to build up such a habit. We should never allow our mind to be vacant. If we allow our mind to be vacant, problems will immediately come in. Our mind will never stay vacant for long; it will always be occupied by something—either by the things of the flesh or by the things of the Spirit, the things concerning Christ. We need to exercise to keep our mind occupied by the things concerning Christ not only in the meetings but also in our daily life, family life, marriage life, school life, and job life. It is dangerous to have a vacant mind at any time or place. In order to prevent demonic things from coming in, we must fill our mind with something, and the best contents with which to fill our mind are the things concerning Christ.”
My impression was that one of the reasons why our dear brother Witness Lee lived a victorious life is that he did not allow his mind to be vacant. A sister who knew brother Lee personally shared with a group of sisters that one day brother Lee told the saints ”I was checking to see how much time I was in my spirit yesterday and I found out that….6 minutes I was not in my spirit.” The sister shared this with us to tell us that everyday we must aim to be in our spirit more than the day before.
