This is the final principle, number 13, “The Sixth Sense.” We all have a sixth sense, hunches, inklings, thoughts that keep coming back. Things you’re destined to do, if you only heed the call, and begin to take action.
When we get a sense that someone pretending to be our friend really isn’t; or when a spouse is cheating; or when we feel the need to give a phone call to someone at a time when they really need us — that, my friend, is your sixth sense at work. As Christians, this is a discerning spirit.
Notice the book title, “Think and Grow Rich.” This chapter is a culmination of all of the chapters. Every action begins with what it is we are thinking. Then what we choose to do with those thoughts, once they come forth.
According to Hill, once you’ve mastered the first 12 principles you can go through the door to the Temple to Wisdom and tap into your sixth sense — infinite intelligence.
It is quite simple as Hill states over and over again, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive, he can achieve.” This book has helped millions of people learn how to make their dreams become a reality by simply “walking by faith, and not by sight.” As you followed the past 12 weeks, did you notice scriptures were always applied. In fact, 2nd Corinthians 5:7 is the lead scripture for these 13 weeks of study; “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
There will be times, when things won’t make sense as you travel along this journey toward where it is God is leading you. You will have to trust God and continue to move forward.
Do your part. Desire something, believe you can have it, then see yourself in possession of whatever it is you desire — that’s called faith. See yourself running your business, married to a wonderful husband or wife, driving that new Jaguar you want, graduating from college. See the dream as if it is already a reality — by faith, not by sight.
Then you get busy fixing any weaknesses you may have. Weaknesses that hinder you from getting to your destination, we all have some. Do you need more training in a special subject? More mentors?
Cast your care upon the Lord. Pray, stay positive. Don’t get jealous of others who don’t have your problems. God has a plan just for you. Don’t compare your life to others. Be committed especially when it’s hard to do. Psalm 37:3. Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this.
Though this is the final principle, it will not work unless all of the others are at work! Practice walking by faith, and not by sight, and allow the Lord Jesus to “order your steps” all along the way!
We often get started, but can’t seem to see our way clear. Don’t quite know how we’re going to make it to that goal God promised us will be ours.
We must not quit, we must keep going, as God keeps directing our path. Finally, you will reach the other side, and good things will begin to happen for you. Never give up.
Don’t be weary in well-doing, in due season you shall reap. The Word says, “We’re the head and not the tail; our faith moves mountains.
It’s important to listen to your thoughts, your sixth sense. It is God speaking directly into your spirit, leading, guiding and directing your path.
