GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT


To grieve is to cause great sorrow. We are commanded to
not grieve the Holy Spirit. How do we grieve the Holy
Spirit? By resisting His prompting, by hindering His
move in situations in our lives, by ignoring His
direction, we grieve Him. On the other hand, if we let
the Holy Spirit have liberty and control in our lives, our
seal of secure and assured salvation is kept strong and
in tact.


Heavenly Father, have mercy on us and forgive us for
those times when we have grieved Your Holy Spirit.
We realize that we missed out on a great work You
had intended for our lives because we chose to ignore
the Holy Spirit. Help us to always respect the presence
and prompting of the Holy Spirit. We ask this in Jesus'
name.


Read Ephesians 4:30


"And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom
you were sealed for the day of redemption." (NIV)


"And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are
sealed unto the day of redemption." (KJV)

It is the desire of my heart to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord, my God. May I never grieve the Holy Spirit. May the Lord remove the things that are not pleasing to Him out of my life.
