“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.”
Conviction comes with clear direction. God gives us His word to teach us how to live in a way that honors Him. One of my best friends is the most receptive people to the Holy Spirit I’ve ever met. She gets convicted about something and actively asks the Holy Spirit to help her change it. If she felt convicted and proceeded to disregard it, her choice would count as sin. This is the beauty of sanctification! When we train our ears to hear God’s voice, we get to respond to His calling us closer.
"CONVICTION COMES WITH CLEAR DIRECTION."
LORD, thank you for directing my path. Please help me to listen to your Holy Spirit and receive conviction with humility. Please forgive me for ignoring your commands and closing my ears to your voice. Please help me to desire you above anything else.
