Isaiah 42:3 (a) The word indicates that our lovely Lord would not hinder any believer who is struggling to make progress, to grow in grace, and to become more useful.

1 Thessalonians 5:19 (a) It is the desire of our Lord that we should not in any way hinder the work of the Spirit of GOD in other people. We may grieve the Spirit in ourselves, but we quench Him in others. If we ridicule a Christian who is seeking to serve the Lord, we hinder the Spirit in that person. We are not to do this.
