This is interesting because the same is true for me. I too would have been much less confident about this earlier in my teaching career, and maybe rightly so -- and I still proceed more cautiously with newer material. But now I am deliberately weaning myself from the more scripted approach. I do sometimes feel I'm missing the chance to show the students how to pull disparate elements into a coherent interpretation - the 'modeling the argument' part of formal lecturing is something valuable. But I try to do at least some of that on the fly!
