TOPIC: Grieving The Holy Spirit (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 21 December 2021)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Peter 1-3; Jude

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:14-30

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

MEMORY VERSE: “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” – Ephesians 4:30

Your greatness in life is guaranteed as you cooperate with the Holy Spirit.

PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:

Continuing from where we stopped yesterday, you can also grieve the Holy Spirit when you fail to apply the word of truth in your life. James 1:22 says you should be the doer of the word and not hearer alone. When you know what the word of God says but you refuse to obey it, you will grieve the Holy Spirit.

In Psalm 31:1, David said that he put his total trust in God. You may have faith in God but do you really trust Him? David said to God, “Into thine hand I commit my spirit” — this is complete trust in God. Jesus also said the same on the cross in Luke 23:46 and Stephen did in Acts 7:59. You should commit everything about you to God. But when you do not have confidence in Him and do not do His will, what you are doing is grieving the Holy Spirit. In addition, the Holy Spirit is the giver of power (Acts 1:8), but when you rely on your own strength, you grieve Him.

When you focus on yourself alone without regarding the feelings of others and your expression conforms to worldly saying such as “I before others”, “it is always me”, “me alone”, you grieve the Holy Spirit. That popular song says that you have no power of your own and you brought nothing to the world. You are what you are by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit. In Matthew 12:31, the Bible says that all sins shall be forgiven, but the sin and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven. Take heed unto thyself therefore not to grieve the Holy Spirit.

Beloved, many Christians are really grieving the Holy Spirit of God in our contemporary time. When you always fail to listen to the nudges of the Holy Spirit, you are grieving Him. Also, you are grieving the Holy Spirit when you fail to witness for Jesus. The same is true when you love yourself alone and engage yourself in anything that is displeasing to God, failing to cooperate with Him. You need to know that the Holy Spirit is a gentle man, full of love, and He has been sent to help you in your Christian walk.



  1. Lord, transform my life to glorify You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  2. My life shall not disobey or walk contrary to the leading of the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. Lord, forgive me for any of my actions that have grieved the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ.


  1. Holy Spirit, make my end better than my beginning, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  2. The oil of heaven over my life shall not dry up, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. I shall not abuse the grace of God upon my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. My life shall not disobey the leading of the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ.
