1 Corinthians 2:6-16

Sarah stepped to the pulpit noticeably fearful. It wasn’t her first time to speak in public but it would be the first time she spoke as one called to preach. Her fear was fueled with the knowledge that her calling was not completely supported by her church family. She never conceived that trusting God would lead her to become a catalyst for transforming the hearts of her church family.

None of us are prepared for where God’s Spirit will lead. The apostle Paul tells us this is because our wisdom doesn’t flow from God. As history has shown, the wisdom of the age will lead us to express the darkest aspects of our fallen state. However, God’s wisdom leads us to express new heights of love, courage, faith and justice in our world.

We are called to trust. We must trust the Spirit to reveal the hidden thoughts and behaviors which hinder the activity of God in our lives and in the lives of others. It is not something we can do on our own power. Only the Spirit can lead us if we trust.
