I thought this 6th sense will have to wait till its of popular demand , I had a chat with a friend and I got loads of wrong guesses as to what the 6th sense is, Its a good morning and I feel beautiful from the inside out , though things have been a bit rough ,one virtue am learning and doing is Patience ,I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I slept alone and I woke up alone and I still cant phantom the logic behind this except for Psalm3 vrs 5 .And I thought
- What if, God stopped loving and caring for us?
- What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we didn’t follow Him today?
- What if, God would not hear us today because we would not listen to Him?
- What if, God met our needs the way we give Him our lives???
- What if God couldn’t take the time to bless us today because we couldn’t take the time to thank Him yesterday?
And it was What if ? What if ? till I fell asleep again to wake up this morning and here I am sharing with you the 6TH and uncommon sense which is the sense of PRAISING
The dictionary says praise originally meant to set a price on or appraise. The dictionary gives meanings of: to commend the worth of; express approval or admiration of, to laud the glory of (God, etc.), as in song; glorify; extol.Praise is a natural response to God which happens as a result of knowing God. The Bible is filled with references to praising God. Praise must be expressed with words. Worship can be expressed by words or actions.
Who do we praise ? because let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Why do we praise ? Because God deserves praise
From the very dawn of time, the experience of mankind in their relationship with God has been one of thanksgiving. The creation of the world and mankind was an act of love and self-giving from God which was conditional on one thing alone – that man thankfully return that love. God gave us life and love and in return, we chose death and thanklessness. He, however, refused to give up. Despite our selfish desire to live as if God did not exist, He kept returning to us again and again, as a jilted lover to His beloved.here are many things for which we should give thanks. We live in a great land, we have the freedom to say and do what we wish,We have many THINGS indeed.Let’s celebrate each Day giving PRAISE for what is proper and remember that it does not end there, but continues forever. Those who are alive are the ones Praising and thanking Him. Those who are dead are not interested in PRAISE and thanks.
The strange thing about all of this is that we are walking, talking, breathing, and existing, and yet, some of us are already dead. So today, pause for a special moment of thanks, I’m realizing how much of my prayer life focuses on things that concern me, directly or indirectly. Not every prayer request or praise is made for my benefit, but they tend to be requests and praises for things that are factors in my own life—health, weather, forgiveness, family matters, world issues that concern me.it is certainly good to praise God for the ways he acts in our lives—but how easy it is to unconsciously restrict our praise to the attributes that appeal to us or impact us in some way!
God has wired us to respond with praise to things that amaze and overwhelm us and that is why I term it the 6TH and UNCOMMON SENSE If that joyful feeling is absent from our lives, I suggest we spend time in quiet contemplation of God’s attributes—and not just the ones that benefit us personally!
- if you don’t Praise God for being a Nigerian maybe you will praise him when you are an Eskimo
- if you don’t praise God for your other 5 senses maybe you will praise him when you have a down syndrome
- if you don’t praise him in the morning when you wake up maybe you will praise him in the night when you have an accident and your leg is to be amputated
- if you don’t praise him in the day maybe you will praise him when you cant see the night
sometimes we never feel the essence of life, sometimes we never feel somethings can happen to us, sometimes we just live life without a thought of where we started and where we would end, sometimes we just never face the truth sometimes…………we just wont PRAISE God for Then to see NOW, and for a then to be here for you will there
let this 6th and uncommon sense flow through your veins like your blood , I know its not easy , life is full of ups and downs , melt and crashed down economy , but remember you are pressed but not crushed , you are persecuted but not abandoned , stormed down but not destroyed, when everything else fails , when all the 5 senses refuse to work remember apply the 6Th and uncommon sense PRAISE !!!
do you agree/disagree that the act of PRAISING is the 6th and uncommon sense, drop your comments ………
Ain’t a brag
love you still
