Does Your Conscience Bother You?

Updated on March 12, 2011

Who's trying to get through to me?

What is going on in my mind?
What is going on in my mind?

Who's at the wheel?

Without a doubt, the truth is inside of every one of us. I want to address both the truth and our conscience and how they relate. Are they connected? Why do we feel convicted when we do wrong? There has been many questions about " Our conscience".

I believe our conscience works on us day after day helping/enabling us to become aware of our decisions during and after we make them, To make sure we made or make the right one. To analize and come to terms with, to be in agreement with/united/comfortable in our skin....happy and content. Therefore our conscience is nessessary for determining the outcome of our life even tho this is only part of the equasion.

I believe our conscience give us the facts unless we are nieve of them.That is how we determine our decision's. If our decision is wrong (which can occur) I believe our conscience weighs it out and provides us with the answer/solution.

Good and Bad influences

There is a lot of information to be evaluated in this world. There is good doctrin and false doctrin. I also believe there is a Spiritual realm. The scripture...In Matthew 6:10 reads as follows. "Your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven". Satan/evil exists but God's will is to rid evil and have good prevail. He wants us to be of the same mindset. To have no part of evil. God wants/desires our minds to be pure as in heaven.

In Matt 16:19 the scripture reads " I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven". In other words...If we bind sin, put sin in restraints, have no part of it and chain it up, then it will also be bound (chained up) in heaven where it can no longer have an effect on us. Whatever we loose means..bring into the world/share/believe in, will be loosed in heaven. If we loose goodness, love, peace, joy, hope, faith, forgiveness upon the earth, these things will also be loosed in heaven. We will obtain these in heaven. If we are ashamed of our Father Jesus Christ, he will in return be ashamed of us in heaven.

False prophets and false christ's will arise

There are many who need their ears tickled. Their desire is to turn the word into their liking/twist the word of God so they can be comfortable in their own skin, and by doing this they are apposing/going against God and the truth he stands for.

This is why God wants us to be prepared. To put on the Full Armor/shield of God so we are not shaken/moved/influenced/swayed/made to believe what is not written in the bible. In Ephesians 6 Verses 10-17 it is written "Be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Stand firm in truth, righteousness, peace and Faith of which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take on the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God".

God says we will know them by their fruits just as God knows them. IIn Matthew 7 verses 16, it is written "By their fruit you will recognize them". If they do not put forth good fruit ( that which is written) then they are defiling God.

I also believe that the ones who look for evil will find it. If you seek after good, you will find it for It is written in Luke 11 verse 9 "So I say unto you, ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened". If we seek after the truth, we will find it. If one seeks after what is not good they will be decieved. Decieved by false doctrin, lies. We are not struggling with people! We are struggling with the spirits that pocess them. The spirits that keep them in darkness/blinded/decieved/burdened with sin. We must pray for their restoration.

When one becomes saved, their burdens are lifed. Once saved, we are lightened/lifted from the burdens we have been carrying. They are no longer our burdens. They become Jesus Christs because he died for our sins. He has lifted them off us! He took our sins to the cross. Sacrificed himself so we could be saved/set apart from sin. By the blood he shed we are saved.....if we believe/have Faith. We are delivered form the sins that consumed us.

You see...once Adam and Eve ate from the tree life (of good and evil ) they became aware of both, and shame and fear came upon them and they clothed themselves. Good and evil was then upon the earth. Good and evil are in conflict with one another.

Satan does not want us to seek after the truth. He wants to destroy it by way of fear, shame, hate, anger, unforgiveness, selfishness, jealousy, gossip, slander etc;. Satan knows we are of the flesh and that we desire things of the flesh. Sin trys to creep into our lives everyday. Evil will destroy what is good if we let it. If we look to God in ALL things, good will prevail for God knows our needs!

This is where/why I believe God works in our conscience mind day and night instilling what is good. I call this the breaking down process. To break us free from sin. To guide us into the truth. The way, the truth and the life that we should want and desire to live. It is written in John 14 verse 6 "Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". Jesus will come to our rescue, to restore us from the evil that awaits us at every corner. Evil that will destroy us.

If your mind is occupied with the Holy Spirit of God...there is NO place for Satan to rest!!! ONLY GOD!!! AMEN!!!

If you want to know more about God's Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Spirit I am providing a link here to click on. The hubbers name is No body. I love his teaching and the way he breaks down everything so it's easy to understand. This is a 9 part series explaining in detail each fruit and how they apply to your life. Wonderful reading! After you read this first hub, the rest are numbered 2-9. "The fruits of the Spirit". God Bless you!!!

      Thank you anoymous. God is truth and satan is the master of lies and division. He trys to divide the truth and destroy it. The truth is within us seeking to work it's way to the surface. It may be buried beneath the rubble, but it is there. The rubble is satan trying to keep us from it. The devil will do his best to keep us in the rubble by clouding/enfluencing our minds with evil so as to hide and cover the truth. The truth will set us free. If we recognize the rubble for what it is, we can toss it to the wayside. Keep listening to the truth for there you will find freedom and peace everlasting. May God bless you!

      Thank you Peter for your comment. I agree in the sense that one's enviornment ie; whether rich or poor can mislead and promote ignorance ie; being caught up in drugs or any kind of dependency and also proper upbringing will cloud one's judgement.

      Conscience always tells us when something is not right. But I do believe environmental factors greatly affect level of conscience. A person growing up in a low income, high crime area will have a different set of values and conscience that a person in a high income family who attends private schools.

      I totally agree with you. If my conscience ever stops bothering me, I know there is something terribly wrong. I know that I have really strayed from God and my walk will go nowhere until I get back in right relationship with him. I enjoyed this hub. Thanks for this hub

      Thank you brother Quill! Yes, Jesus is the way, the truth and the life! There is no other way that will give us magnificant peace, hope, joy, love etc; for when we except Jesus as our Lord and Savior we come to know the true meaning of these and are able to find complete comfort in them. Blessings!!!

      Our conscience that little tiny voice within us, is God Himself, in the person of His Holy Spirit,speaking to our heart, to our mind, to fix and or correct, that in our life that is not of God. A Christian will quickly listen and obey no matter the difficulty or the consequences, the unsaved, tend to procrastinate, or ignore.

      What is so often not revealed is that truth may not "tickle our ears" but when we embrace it there is a wonderful and unexplainable peace that settles in and completes us. Thanks

      Wonderful hub, great encouragement in my walk with God. It is striking to me to remember that each saved sinner is in Christ, the Father looks upon them and sees Christ because He died for our salvation. This enables me to have so much more understanding, love and grace for my brothers and sisters- especially one or two I am having difficulties with at the moment.

      Bless your writings. Grace and peace to you sister,

      Thank you my sister for the wonderful hub and connecting to my hubs. It was a sweet gesture but I think that the Lord must have laid it on your heart for a good reason. I will pray for the ones that come over as a result so that they will get the information they need. Your hub about the conscience was good. We can say no to the Holy Spirit so much the Bible says that our consciences become as if "seared by a hot iron." It becomes easier and easier to not listen to that still small voice of the Lord. Then the thing that happens that was written in Romans where sinners are given over to the sin and I don't know if they are ever able to escape it. I want my conscience tender before the Lord. I want to be ready to be molded into the image of Christ, to be Christ-like, a Christian. I want to be discerning and able to hear wise counsel of my brothers and sisters. Thank you for writing things that contribute to my growth. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord too. I love you, Bob.

      Thank you for sharing the truth of God's Word and the inspiration of His Spirit.

      "When one becomes saved, their burdens are lifted. Once saved, we are lightened/lifted from the burdens we have been carrying. They are no longer our burdens." AMEN, AMEN!

      This statement reminded me of Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" when Christian was relieved of the heavy load (sin) on his back.

      Have a blessed Resurrection Sunday!!

      Forever His,

      Great hub, sis! I love Romans 2:15 confirming your inspired hub: "they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them." And also Acts 24:16 "I also do my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God and before men." God's word says that those who are false have a conscience seared with a hot iron (1 Tim 4:2). Thank God for our consciences; if we ever get to where we are not affected by them...something's very wrong! Love and blessings, sis!
