Is there anything in your life that needs to be removed? We can grieve the Spirit with our rebellion and disobedience. We can even quench the Spirit by having no regard for God’s teaching. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:19-20, “never damp the fire of the Spirit, and never despise what is spoken in the name of the Lord.”
Are you feeding your flesh and neglecting your faith? If the answer is yes, you are quenching the Spirit within you. Do you want his power? Direction? Strength? Then keep in step with the Spirit. He directs and leads; we obey and follow. And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!
