Acts 16:14b Whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul

Just as inventors have reasons for their creation, so does God, who is the Supreme Creator of the universe and the Ultimate Head of the church but sadly, sometimes, we do not seek His counsel in all of our endeavours. Remember, He is interested in every aspect of your life and wants to help you succeed

3 John : 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

We are not alone in this. Paul and his team thought it best to go to Asia to strengthen the churches they had planted over there and probably, establish new ones in their densely populated cities. But God had a different idea! In a vision to Paul, He directed they went to Macedonia

Acts 16:9-109 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.

. Paul in humble obedience to the Holy Spirit, turned and went to Thyatira in Greece. God led them to convert Lydia, a very wealthy business woman whose hospitality served as the springboard to claiming Philipi, Berea and Thessalonica for Christ! That marked the genesis of the Gospel to Greece and hence Europe.


Pray that:

  • You discern and obey God's leading of your life and that of the church
  • You go therefore and not sit therefore, utilizing God's time correctly
  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit are kindled to operate in the church such that we know where to go- as regards missions, projects, structures etc.
  • You play your part in our theme for the year- Urgently fulfilling the Great Commission

God bless you and establish you in every good work this week and beyond!
