The apostle Paul wrote about our consciences frequently. He said that he kept a clear conscience before God (Acts 23:1, 24:16, 1 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Timothy 1:3,) and he said that we should dorepparttar same (Romans 13:5, 1 Timothy 1:5, 19, 3:9) so that we don't shipwreck our faith. We can know that we are hearing from God by listening to our conscience.

~ "I speakrepparttar 146480 truth in Christ--I am not lying, my conscience confirms it inrepparttar 146481 Holy Spirit" (Romans 9:1).

~ "Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves inrepparttar 146482 world, and especially in our relations with you, inrepparttar 146483 holiness and sincerity that are from God" (2 Corinthians 1:12).

~ Our consciences "bear witness" torepparttar 146484 truth (Romans 2:15), becauserepparttar 146485 truth is "plain to our conscience" (2 Corinthians 5:11), andrepparttar 146486 "the Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit" (Romans 8:16) to confirmrepparttar 146487 truth.

If we learn to obey our conscience and let peace be our umpire, we will be able to let God lead our daily lives and assure ourselves of success and prosperity.
