Grieving the Holy Spirit

Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Psalms 51:11 NIV

David wrote Psalms 51 after the prophet Nathan confronted him regarding his adultery with Bathsheba and murdering her husband. David wrote this prayer of repentance. Our verse today shows that our sins block us from the presence of the LORD. True happiness is found only in the presence of the LORD. When we sin, we grieve the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our guide and when we ignore the Holy Spirit often enough, we will no longer hear it speaking to us.

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30 NIV
