People with a guilty conscience often feel like other people are judging them even when the judgment is coming from within. To clear your conscience, sincerely ask God (and anyone else you have offended) to forgive you.
If you feel like your life is a mess, wake up your conscience and begin to follow and obey it. It will put you back together again. A guilty conscience never knows inner peace. To be serene come clean.
If people would trust and follow their conscience like they do GPS apps, the world would be a much nicer place! Life catches up. You can’t continually fake a clear conscience and you can’t always outrun a guilty one.
To stay out of sync with your conscience is to sink into guilt, discouragement, and despair. There’s still time to realign. Ancient Orthodox monks continually reset their conscience with this prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me a sinner.”
The human conscience is God’s moral GPS carried by DNA and installed in the womb. It’s dangerous to ignore and/or override yours.
An ignored conscience leads to guilt. A clear conscience leads to peace. To ignore and/or resist the voice of your conscience is to miss God’s light and to choose to walk in darkness.
Trying to carry all the burdens of your past, present, and future makes you tense. Don’t sink your conscience. Get it in sync.
