Verse for the day…11-18-2011

 

Gentle Evening Breeze - photo taken by Candy Clonts - You can not see the breeze itself, but you can see the effects in the bushes. Just as you can not see the Spirit of God, but you will see the result of His presence.

1 Thessalonians 5:19
19 Quench not the Spirit.

To quench is to extinguish or to douse. The Spirit of the Lord is desiring to move, speak, lead, teach and so much more, yet we have the ability to put it out. We need to be aware of what we do, say…live our lives before God and man. No we don’t need to fear every thing we do. Be aware. We need to be diligent about what you are thinking and doing. God wants us to be in tune with Him so when He is wanting to do or say something you can receive it. Just as we can throw a bucket of water on a campfire to put it out, so can we douse the Spirit in our lives. Don’t be caught up in things you should not be…thoughts, books, TV, magazines, relationships-there is nothing wrong in these things, but…anything that could take and rob you of your relationship and ability to respond to Jesus is a great candidate for quenching the Spirit in your life. God desires us to be watchful, mindful and occupied about His things.

Lord bless you.
