When the Bible tells us to live by the Spirit, we have to understand that the Spirit of God will not lead us into something He doesn’t empower us to do. Unfortunately, we sometimes fall into the habit of excusing our failures as inherent in our character, and beyond the reach of the Spirit’s power. Do that often enough, and we becoming numb through a repeated dismissal of the Spirit. The Scriptures call this grieving the Spirit and quenching the Spirit, respectively, and warn us against such things.
