Joel Osteen (February-11-2019) Daily Devotion: Follow your Conscience.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live. (Job 27:6, NIV)
TODAY'S WORD: God speaks to us in many ways. One way is through that "small voice" we call our conscience. In many cases, that's the voice of the Holy Spirit prompting you to be good to someone, or it might be warning you about a situation that otherwise seems fine! When you feel uneasiness and unrest, the Lord may be saying, "Watch out, there's danger ahead." That’s not just your nerves, it’s God protecting you. If you ignore these warnings, you could experience heartache and pain. Is the Holy Spirit placing warning signs in front of you today? When you sense these warning signs, you have a choice to make. God won't make you do the right thing. You have your own free will. It's up to you to choose the right road. Refuse to compromise. Don't compromise in your marriage, your business or with your family. Listen to the still, small voice inside that warns you of impending danger. When you do, God will guide you along the best path for your life.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: God, I am grateful that I have the power to make the right choices today. I know what is right and what is wrong. When my conscience speaks to me, I pray that I will listen and stay on the right path so my life will glorify You. In Jesus' name - Amen.
