The Lord's Searchlight

Proverbs 20:
27. A man's conscience is the Lord's searchlight
exposing his hidden motives.
Living Bible

So many times, when we interact with others, and we work the situation so that it comes out in our favour, the Lord needs to turn on the searchlight of our conscience, so that we can see that our motives in the matter were really so selfish, and we just didn't want to know that.

A wise Prophet once said this about our conscience:
   a properly functioning conscience is one that cries out to stop us BEFORE we get into sin
   a fairly good conscience beats us AFTER we've done wrong
   when wrong doesn't bother us, our conscience is non-functional

So how do we get to the place where wrong doesn't bother us?

The Apostle Paul explains it like this:
1 Timothy 4:
1 Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.
2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.
New Living Bible

Prayer:
Father, keep me today and always from following deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.
If I have become a hypocrite or a liar, cleans me from these destructive sins in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bring my conscience back alive and fully functional today and always,
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
whose truth sets me free to walk with You in truth,
Amen.



There's a new thought here tomorrow.
See you then, God willing!





Psalm 107:
17 Some fools turned against God and suffered for the evil they did.
18 They refused to eat anything, so they almost died.
19 In their misery they cried out to the LORD, and he saved them from their troubles.
20 God gave the command and healed them, so they were saved from dying.
21 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his love and for the miracles he does for people.
22 Let them offer sacrifices to thank him. With joy they should tell what he has done.
(New Century Bible)
