"Quenching the Spirit"
“Do not quench the Spirit” 1 Thessalonians 5:19
Oswald Chambers said, “If you get out of the light you become a sentimental Christian and live on memories, your testimony has a hard , metallic note. Beware of trying to patch up a present refusal to walk in the light by recalling past experiences when you did walk in the light. Whenever the Spirit checks, call a halt and get the thing right, or you will go on grieving Him without knowing it.” Grieving the Spirit is no small matter. It is a sin and the result of sin. If your most spiritually healthy days are in your past then you have grieved Him somewhere along the way and are not currently walking in His light.
- Lord, please show me where I have sinned. Inform me of when I stopped seeking You and started resting in my own wisdom. Draw me back to You.
