Unpredictable

12 Sep

“Be faithful when God assigns a young person to you, have faith when God chooses someone else, and ask God for wisdom to know the difference between the two. God is sovereign; God’s work will be accomplished in the life of young people regardless of whether it’s through us that God chooses to work…

We can facilitate the process by nurturing an environment in which youth can be exposed to the presence of God, all the while remembering the Holy Spirit works in a way we can’t formalize into a technique or program. “Do not be astonished that I said to you, ‘You must be born from above.’ The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:7-8). How many combinations of the wind blowing are there? When you take into account velocity, direction, patterns and temperature, the combinations are endless. Likewise, all stories of personal salvation and transformation are unique because we have a creative God…”
