In Acts 16:7-8 we read, “When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas.”
Take time to pray about each of these questions individually. If you are with your household, discuss each question after a period of silent prayer.
How do you believe the Spirit of Jesus kept Paul and his companions from entering Bithyhia?
How do you think Paul felt when he was not able to finish his well-intended plans?
Has the Spirit of Jesus ever kept you from doing something you believed at the time was right? How?
Has the Spirit of Jesus ever kept our church from doing what we believed at the time as right? How?
Take a few minute to journal about what you are hearing. Then rest for a moment in gratitude to God.
