How does God guide us? Once in awhile you hear stories of how a person received guidance through very vivid means such as a dream or a never-to-be-forgotten spiritual experience. Sometimes people have something extraordinary happen to them — such as surviving some situation that almost cost their life, and then feeling that they learned a crucial lesson from the experience.
Isn’t it likely though, that most often Heaven guides us through our conscience? The conscience is a marvelous instrument. For one thing, it transcends any particular religious faith. You will find people of all sorts of faiths who have strong consciences. Moreover, the conscience usually works pretty quietly, rather than dramatically. But it can be very, very powerful.

Who’s to say that the conscience isn’t how God chooses to guide people in many such situations?
