On Monday mornings and Thursday mornings I always go back over my notes for the sermon and/or Bible study from the day before. One of the things that I've noticed is that the actual presentation is different from what I had planned to say. The points from Scripture are almost always the same, but how they are applied and the illustrations I've planned are often different from the sermon preached. Is it the same for other pastors? I understand that the holy Spirit leads us - hopefully - to say what we are saying about His Word, but it seems lately that it is very different. I know His leadership in a sermon is not in any way even in the same ball park as the inspiration of Scripture, but I was wondering how different does the Holy Spirit lead you in your prep time than in the preaching time?
