Hearing From God #2
“Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia.” (Act 16:6) If you have now surrendered or committed your business to God, He will arrange circumstances. Look for coincidences in your day, like unexpected answers or contacts. Look for the seemingly prearranged. Notice also the doors that will not open. Some are to be pushed and others to be left alone. Look of the hand of God. Paul was hindered from going into Asia and took that as God shutting the door.
Listen to the quiet sense of inner peace, the still, small voice in your spirit. Do you feel really uncomfortable about a deal or opportunity? Learn to take note of your sense of peace, both from a positive and from a cautionary view.
God will show you His will in more direct ways as well. You will be amazed at how directly He can guide you. It is no different from the first church and early apostles preaching the gospel in the marketplaces of the Middle East.
Quick Prayer: Jesus, help me to hear from You. Amen.
