Do Not Quench the Spirit

My Utmost His Highest

"Do not quench the Spirit." (1 Thessalonians 5:19)

The voice of the Spirit of God is as gentle as a summer breeze — so gentle that unless you are living in complete fellowship and oneness with God, you will never hear it. The sense of warning and restraint that the Spirit gives comes to us in the most amazingly gentle ways. And if you are not sensitive enough to detect His voice, you will quench it, and your spiritual life will be impaired. This sense of restraint will always come as a “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12), so faint that no one except a saint of God will notice it. . . Whenever the Spirit gives you that sense of restraint, call a halt and make things right, or else you will go on quenching and grieving Him without even knowing it. (read more) (purchase)
