31 Days of Walking with the Spirit: Day 17

Sunday, January 17, 2016

"They passed through the Phrygian and Galatian region, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia; and after they came to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them."
(Acts 16:6-7, NASB)

  1. There are times when the Spirit will forbid us to going into places; be it that God knows that our word won't be received or that the timing is not pertinent; but when He does prevent us from going to a certain area, such as in the case of Paul, it is definitely for a purpose that will bring Him the glory. Perhaps, one way is circumvented to lead to someone else who may be ready to receive the word! According to Barnes Notes, this forbidding was God's way to extend the gospel further into the regions of Greece than it would have been done if they had remained in Asia Minor. God's plans and the Holy spirit's directions are always purposed!
