Faith and a good conscience

1 Timothy 1:18-19 (NET)  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. 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.


When Jide started meditating on the word of God and praying every day, he observed that his faith started to grow. He knew this because he was no more as fearful as he used to be, and he was now more thankful and complained less. He also observed that his words and prayers were now so much more powerful.

Some things happened in the office and Jide had to write a report filled with lies. He observed instantly that after preparing that report, he lost his peace and confidence of faith. He used to wake up every morning with an atmosphere of victory in his spirit because his heart was filled with faith, but after he wrote that report, because of a guilty conscience, his faith was fractured and his inner joy compromised.

He had to rewrite that report and tell the truth even though the truth was not as beneficial as the lies he had first told. This was when he regained his peace.

We can learn from today's Bible verse that in order for us to wage a good Warfare we are to hold unto faith and a good conscience. The word of God is the way through which faith comes to our hearts and grows, but a guilty or defiled conscience is the fastest way through which the faith of a believer can be eroded or even shipwrecked. Any believer that wants to walk in great faith would be careful not to walk in such a way that his conscience is defiled. Sin causes defilement of conscience, there is no way around this.

Go into today remembering to build your life on God's word. Determine to start your day in God's Word and watch your faith grow.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me daily grow in faith and walk in your perfect plan for my life, In Jesus' name. Amen.
