What Is Your Conscience Telling You?

What Is Your Conscience Telling You?

“We have a good conscience, in all things.”                 Heb 13:18 NKJV

Fire alarms have an internal switch triggered by a beam of light. As long as the light is received unbroken by the photosensitive receiver, the detector is quiet. But if smoke, moisture, or an insect obstructs the beam for even a split second, the alarm sounds. Paying attention to that alarm can make the difference between life or death. And your conscience works on the same principle. When sin obstructs the connection between you and God, your conscience signals that something’s wrong. At that moment you should thank God for helping you to feel good about feeling bad. Only a fool would turn off the alarm or develop the ability to sleep through it. While certain things aren’t “wrong” in themselves, they may be wrong for you because of the future God has in mind. That means there are things others can do that you can’t. So instead of being stubborn, rejoice in the knowledge that God has great things in store for you. A French proverb says, “There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience.” Listening to your conscience will keep you from going the wrong way. And if you decide to plow on regardless, your conscience will keep you from being at ease with your decision. Always ask yourself this question and you’ll make the right decision: “How will doing this affect my confidence toward God?” The Bible says, “If our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we…do those things that are pleasing in His sight” (1Jn 3:21-22 NKJV).
