1 Timothy 1:18-19 (NLT)
18 I put this charge before you, Timothy my child, in keeping with the prophecies once spoken about you, in order that with such encouragement you may fight the good fight. 19 To do this you must hold firmly to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck in regard to the faith.
During the season Ameh was going through a trial of faith, there was a particular period that his faith was really low. During this period he observed that he even started doubting the existence of God, despite all the remarkable acts of God he had experienced in the past. He couldn’t understand this, but all he could do was to continue to pray and dwell on God’s word. Each time he prayed in the spirit, he observed that his faith was boosted a little.
He started investigating what was wrong: ‘why this strange drought of faith? ‘
He later found out that it was because, at that time, he allowed a guilty conscience linger. There was something he did that made him feel guilty, and he felt this guilt for a long time without addressing it appropriately.
One of the greatest forces against our faith is a guilty conscience. With a guilty conscience, our spirits cannot fellowship with God, and this fellowship is the source of our strength. Those who allow their consciences to be violated for long risk having a shipwreck of faith (see 1 Tim 1:19).
One of the major signs that your faith is sinking is that you will begin to doubt the willingness and ability of God to help you. This ultimately leads to doubting the existence of God.
Go into today knowing that you are to avoid anything that leads to the constant violating of your conscience.
Prayer: ask the Lord to help you always maintain a clear conscience before God and before men (see Acts 24:16)
