MFM Daily Devotional January 20, 2021 – Grieve Not The Holy Spirit
Dearly beloved welcome to MFM Daily Devotional January 20, 2021 – Grieve Not The Holy Spirit written by Pastor D.K Olukoya. Be blessed and inspired to do more.
TOPIC: GRIEVE NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT
Fire Scripture: Judges 16:1-6
The Holy Spirit can be grieved. He can also depart from a believer. Being sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, obeying His instructions and living in His will consistently increase His presence in a believer’s life signiﬁcantly. Conversely, living in sin, unrighteousness and willful disobedience reduces His presence. If a believer persists in wilful sin and disobedience, the Holy Spirit will completely depart from him or her.

A Christian without the Holy Spirit will experience avoidable and needless pain, become a prey to the enemy and live a miserable and unfulﬁlled life. It is important for you to know how the Holy Spirit can be grieved. Such a vital knowledge will help you from making that grievous mistake. Samson was a judge in Israel. His birth was announced by an angel. God endowed him with supernatural strength and his ministry gave Israel dominion over the Philistines, their arch enemies.
The exploits of Samson were engineered by the Holy Spirit. However, Samson constantly grieved the Spirit of God. He lived a careless, carnal, immoral, impure and disobedient life. He touched the carcass of an animal, lusted after unbelieving women and committed immorality with impunity. He broke his Nazarine vows and covenants with God wilful and consistently.
Eventually, he let out the secret of his unusual divine strength to Delilah. The seven locks of hair on his head were cut and he lost the Holy Spirit, his unusual anointing and ministry.
Apart from disobedience, character defects and ungodly lifestyles of pride, strife, covetousness, deﬁling the body (the temple of the Spirit) and arrogating the glory that belongs to God to oneself can make the Holy Spirit depart from a Christian. Beloved, the Bible says that the things that are written are for our learning. Make Christlikeness your goal and let your life glorify God always. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit!
