Topic: The Power of A Clear Conscience
SCRIPTURE: And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men. Acts 24:16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When the conscience is clear, guidance is easy.
MESSAGE: A major secret of life is anchored on two major things: a conscience that is clear with God and a conscience that is clear with man. If our relationship with God and man is clear, reaching where we are meant to reach and becoming what we are meant to become on earth is a certainty.

With this in mind, the enemy has decided to constantly organize diversities of situations to make us offend God and to cause our hearts to be bottled up with offences towards our fellow human beings, even the brethren.
Now, what makes a clear conscience powerful?
1. A clear conscience imparts the boldness of faith in a person’s life (Proverbs 28:1). A clear conscience equals strong confidence at the place of prayer and in life generally.
So, anything that makes God not to be happy with you is indirectly fighting the boldness of your faith. Whoever and whatever constitutes an offence in your heart is tampering with your boldness and confidence towards God.
- A clear conscience gives one access to Divine direction. When the conscience is clear, guidance is easy; and when guidance is lost, disaster is inevitable. In Proverbs 20:27, the Bible says, ‘The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD,…’. So, when the spirit is injured by offence, it cannot function effectively.
