"And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of salvation." ESV
To grieve is to cause great sorrow. How is it that we grieve the Holy Spirit and bring Him such sorrow? We do it by resisting His prompting, by hindering His moving, and by ignoring His direction. Rather, if we let the Holy Spirit have His way, we will be in right relationship with our God.
Heavenly Father, have mercy on us and forgive us for those times we have grieved Your Holy Spirit. We realize the great workings we have missed because we have grieved Him. Give us hearts of discernment so that we will always respect the presence and prompting of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, Amen.
