Devotions for January 31, 2017


12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

ACTS 16:6-10

6 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. 7 When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. 8 So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. 9 During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.


Sometime course correction begins with the presence of God. The Holy Spirit doesn’t show up, just to show up. He shows up when he wants to do, or say, something. The shortest path from where you are to where God wants you is always His way, not yours. Remember, correction isn’t rejection. Correction is a loving God wanting to heal what is broken.


Q: In Acts 16:7, what prevented them from entering the next country?

Q: Does God want to move your life from where it is to where it’s suppose to be? Do you ask God to correct your course as He sees needed?

Q: How many does does your course affect others? Are you unwilling to stop and ask for directions, knowing that you are taking others down the same path?
