“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
To preach takes the inventiveness through Christ to make a way and not shout the Gospel “at” the wall.
What I mean is that to preach effectively takes the ingenuity through Christ’s Holy Spirit to make a way to get through the hearts covered in stone.
The Scripture says, in 1 Corinthians 13:4–8, “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.”
The Holy Spirit is missing from many men and women not called to preach, who are so educated in book knowledge they are not effective—the Holy Spirit is not there
God orchestrates an emptying before He fills the vessel to pour Himself into others which breaks down those barriers.
Hebrews 13:21 talks about equipping when it says,
“Equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
What is good is Christ through the Holy Spirit in us and effective in making a way through the most unruly hearts.
Notice how the text says, “working through us,” never having been taught by men but God inwardly.
1 John 2:27
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
Father is calculated in His placement when He often chooses people who have been in the places of the people we are led to teach the Gospel.
A scholar is one who academically excels in a particular topic of study by schooling. It’s not an anointing. Who are you listening too?
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,
It’s all part of God’s plan.
