Hearing the Spirit

  • by

In Acts 16:6-10 Paul, Silas, and Timothy are continually “kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word…” Honestly, it doesn’t make sense. Jesus, Himself, commissioned the church to go and make disciples of all nations. Paul and his team wanted to proclaim the Gospel. So, why would the Spirit prevent them? What was Paul missing? It seems Paul was intent on going a direction the Spirit didn’t want him to, at least not at this time. So, through a vision, Paul discerns the Spirit’s leading and his team agrees. But how did Paul discern the Spirit’s leading? How did he posture himself to hear? Prayer.
