English Standard Version
We will not always be certain about what God is up to, because His ways are not our ways.
Those who are certain about God must be willing to embrace uncertainty as they seek to follow His Spirit!
God calls us to specific goals without being specific about the process.
Those who follow the Spirit must be willing to accept mystery, uncertainty, dead-ends, delays, and surprises.
The Spirit is best discerned in community!
Those who follow the Spirit must resist discouragement.
The process of following the Spirit is never easy, but it does get easier.
The Spirit’s eye is continually on us, and His counsel is available to us.
God is more concerned with making us holy than with making our path easy!
