common sense is wrong

We live in a society that relies on common sense. But how reliable is common sense and does God want us to rely on it? Perhaps if we would learn to rely on God-sense, our lives would be more meaningful and fulfilling. Common sense may be practical, but I have come to understand that common sense is wrong.

I hear people talk about common sense, and how if we possessed it, we would have the ability to understand and cope with the things we encounter in life. However, I learned that common sense is just that — common. Common sense is something that the majority of people would agree on. Common sense is that which people, in general, perceive as their common or mutual understanding. Another way of defining common sense is good sense and sound judgment in practical matters.

The Goodness of God Sense

The God we serve is amazing. He is good to us even when life wears us down. It hurts to laugh when our spirit has been wounded and when our heart has been broken.

The broken places in life are the places that no one can mend but God. How does one address a right that seems wrong? It seems wrong because it hurts you. But at the same time, it is right because it is the will of God.

When my dear sister, Catherine Andrews, passed from death to life, my common sense emotions were very much alive, yelling, screaming, crying; yet it is a common thing to respond to hurt in such a manner, still, none of that helps, because at the end of my outbursts of hurt, I just wanted my sister back.

I want to be here in the present, operating with the fullness of life, yet I am thinking about being there in the afterlife. The absence of my sister is much like a member of your family that has gone missing. You just want them to come back home. But deep in my knower, I know she is at home with God, in our Father’s Bosom.

Worldly Wisdom Opposes Divine Sense

Every day of our lives we should be preparing to leave this life. No matter how much we would like to stay here God has already said that like everything else, our lives have seasons. “There is a time to be born and a time to die” (Ecclesiastes 3:2).

Anyone who professes to be a Christian should know that attempting to hold on to what is not ours — meaning life as we know it — is in a state of denial and it, then becomes self-evident that we have obtained common sense concerning God sense.

God Sense is Wisdom for Living

Having a common sense about God sense is to have a general opinion about life instead of having God’s knowledge about life. God-sense is wisdom for living and in any given scenario Christians should not rely on common sense.

I know absolutely that it is God’s will and His right to do as He chooses. We were created for His purpose. We should not doubt for one moment that “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1).

Common sense is wrong because the logic of common sense is all wrong. Anyone who desires to hold on to that which is not theirs possesses a wrong intellect. God sense says that life here on earth is always ending.

One who has acquired wisdom understands that in this world, we do not own anything. It is by God’s goodness and His benefits that we are allowed the good pleasure of sharing life. It is wrong in the eyes of God to accept the logic and intellect of common sense. Instead, as Christians, our commonality should be to have God sense at all times concerning life.

Satan uses common sense to spread lies and incomplete truths. Whenever we rely on common sense, we become prey to satanic influence. Things like sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness, hate, violence, and pride all arise from our reliance on common sense. Common sense is wrong.

Spiritual Gifts Are Empowered by God Sense

God-sense on the other hand helps us to understand that we can overcome Satan. When we rely on God-sense we become aware that the Spirit of God is alive inside us and His greatness far surpasses the strength and power of the spirit of Satan that rules the world in which we live. When we rely on God sense we learn to use the spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4-12) that God has given us.

Common sense is wrong. The lessons of God sometimes mean that we learn in hard places and in difficult times. And sometimes these lessons will make one question God. However, God is gracious enough to allow us to have the knowledge to use His wisdom for living, even when we are hurt.

To see right when I am wrong is the goodness of God-sense. So, if common sense ever causes you to ask the question, “Who is God?” the perfect answer would be, “God is Who He Is.”

“Can I ever be free from Heroin? I want to be free”
Is this your heart’s cry? Does it really break your heart that you found yourself trapped by Heroin and you just can’t find freedom? I announce to you that you can be free! Sounds quite amazing? Yes, you can be free! Jesus paid the price for your complete dominion over Heroin. He has the power to break the chains of this addiction.
Think about the effects of being addicted to heroin. For how long will you struggle on your own, depending on yourself? Your life is so beautiful and your future is so bright, you must not allow Heroin destroy you. Your destiny is so promising and should not be truncated by Heroin. Your soul is so precious and should not be wasted by addiction to Heroin.
Dear reader, you’ve been fighting on your own to set yourself free, but the more you struggle, the more it threatens your life, future, family, health, present and eternal destiny; it even threatens the reality of living a beautiful life. Think about this!
Now, I know a Deliverer who has the power to liberate you and make you escape the snare of addiction. His name is Jesus! The Bible says, “Surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4,5)
He did that just for you!
Do you know that He is the Mediator between you and God. Despite the fact that sin, and this addiction has separated you from the One who loves you, Jesus is the Mediator. God sent Him to pay the price of Mankind’s redemption; and yes, to redeem you from sinful nature of humans and Heroin which seem stronger than you are.
You need to repent and get reconciled with God. He is a holy God; and He loves you. But you can’t access Him based on religion, depraved merits and others. That is why He sent His Sib, Jesus who is The Way. Jesus says: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)
So, you need to believe in Jesus and repent of your sins in order to make right with God. Surrender to Jesus and welcome Him into your heart as Your Personal Lord and Saviour. He will liberate you from the chains of sin and Heroin.
Do this now!
