Uncommon Sense

by | Mar 2, 2021 | Prophetic | 1 comment

I have always appreciated people with common sense. The problem with such an open and broad personal definition of sensibility is its narrow interpretation. It is a sense common to those who think alike and see the world through the same interpretive lens. To those outside that definition, it makes no sense.

This morning, I heard the words “uncommon sense.” It was one of those out-of-the-blue combinations of words I have learned over the years that was spoken by the Spirit.

Uncommon sense offers wisdom and a sensible application of insight from Heaven’s perspective. This is an insight not sullied by our bias or fear. When it arrives it confronts the fact that everyone is functioning in their version of common sense and we are going nowhere.

This sensibility from Heaven is prophetic, but it does not always carry a “prophetic” look or sound. Many times, it is void of the trappings of a prophetic delivery. The absence of these trappings can cause a premature rejection of a message that delivers uncommon sense from a source and style that is outside the familiar and expected norm.

Uncommon prophetic sense is being delivered by unlikely messengers. We need to look past our preferences and familiar history. If we can do this we will begin to see and hear something new and find our way forward into God’s preferred future.

    You deliver uncommon sense Garris Elkins. Thank you.
    I think it’s a sense that lines up with heavenly wisdom. Defined in James 3.
