We must not grieve the Holy Spirit of God? He is the One whom sealed us for the day of our redemption. We grieve God when we walk in disobedience and choose not to follow His commandments acting in an unrighteous manner. In other words we know the difference between what is right and what is wrong. It is not godly to have bitterness; wrath, or anger. We should not speak evil against others these things are evil and come from the devil. We should not give the devil any strongholds or footholds but keep our hearts, minds, spirits and souls centred upon the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus disarmed the devil on the Cross of Calvary and He broke all the control the devil had upon our lives. When we confess our sins and repent from our sins through the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, He washes and purifies us through His shed Blood and we are made clean spotless without blemish before God. The enemy hates this when this happens. He knows he has lost the battle when we ask God to forgive us. Jesus has won all the battles for us because we put our love, trust and faith in Him and not in ourselves. The enemy wants us to do the complete opposite of what God’s Word says. The enemy does not want any of God’s children to walk in obedience or submission. It is all about making the right choices. We can choose to keep the commandments of God which He has given us to keep and allow the Holy Spirit of God to control our lives giving us His Wisdom and Discernment to enable us to overcome all the enemies’ strategies and tactics.Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:27 NKJV). Isn’t it wonderful to know that the Holy Spirit of God is interceding to God on our behalf. The Holy Spirit of God strengthens and encourages us to keep to the paths of God’s commandments. We must put every kind of evil away for us turn from it and be tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Jesus Christ has forgiven us.
